Formatting memory in Sony HDR-AZ1

Sony HDR-AZ1.   I insert a memory card and turn the camera on.  All it does is flash the red light on top.   How do you format a memory card in this thing?   I followed another thread but the formatting instructions invovled pressing buttons that do not exist on this camera.  Please help.

It's German, but you can follow the instructions anyways:


You have to connect to your smartphone and use the PlayMemories Mobile App to format the card.
