Why must format the memory card? These cards are like mini computers and have systems files, folders, etc. on the camera format the card adjusts so that it works correctly for that particular camera.

Sometimes the camera will recognize a new card and it is sometimes necessary to access the menu function of your digital camera. It is usually found in the verification SETUP However, if in doubt this manual.

It takes very little time to do this and you can continue with the insurance business to take photos in the knowledge that the memory card is working correctly.

After recording images for some time on a card can also be seen error messages on your camera. Reformatting the card should resolve this problem.

The last and most useful reason for the successful format is that after downloading your images to your computer (check first!), it is good practice to format the memory card every time you put it back in the camera, although the content has been removed from the card using a computer.

This is a good habit to adopt, because it minimizes the risk of failures in communication between the card and the camera, especially if you use the card in different cameras.

It is also a quick way to erase their images as formatting deletes or overwrites the file directory.

The most common question is "What if I deleted all my pictures by mistake or is my memory card damaged?

Camera manufacturers usually say that the format of a memory card "permanently deletes all photographs and other data of the card can contain. "

However, this is not strictly true that the format only process overwrites the file directory containing the files image. The images are usually still there but you can not access them.
