You should always format the card in the camera before using. This is to ensure maximum compatability. It really shouldn't make any difference, but it does.

I also format the card in the camera after downloading the contents to my computer. If you just delete the images (without formatting) you can end up with a fragmented card, and not all cameras can deal with this properly. Formatting ensures the card is not fragmented.
