Guys i think i found the format option. Its under settings. The format option is there screaming at me and i actually missed it.

Anyways, I did read up somewhere that its advisable to use some programs to do a thorough erase of the card, and then i format using my camera's format option.

Is that right? If so, could anybody elaborate on that?

Thanks

No. Just use your camera to format the card.

I wouldn't mess around with utilities that write to it.

I totally agree. It's soo much quicker to format using the camera's menu option.
