Formatting the memory card once you have downloaded your images and you’re sure that you want to erase all the images from the memory card and anything else that maybe on the memory card, anything that the camera may not see, it’s quite simple, go ahead and press the Menu button down here to access the Main menu. Go over to the right, to the Set Up menu, and go down until you get to Format.
Now, in this case, just go ahead and press Set and choose whether you want to format or not. Go over to the right to select OK and hit the Set button in order to format. Now, the other option is what’s called a low level format. And this will completely zero everything out through all those little bits in the memory card, you don’t need to worry about that but basically what it’ll do is just mark them all as zero.
So, in order to do that, go up and press either the left or right navigation button to place a check in that mark and then go back down and click OK.
Now usually, I don’t do a low level format. You can see it does take a little bit longer. Usually, I just do a regular format and it seems to work just fine. It’s recommended to use the low level format if you notice that the memory card is not writing and reading as fast as it normally does from the camera or from a computer.
