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.
MY QUESTION: COULD YOU EXPLAIN WHAT A "FRAGMENTED CARD" IS? THANKS IN ADVANCE, I FIND THIS FORUM VERY VERY INFORMATIONAL!
