    Format the Card Occasionally
    Memory cards should be formatted to maintain top performance. They should only be formatted using the camera never format using a computer as it may render the card unreadable by the camera.

    Formatting clears the directory structure of the card and removes any artifacts that might be left behind by erasing. Repeatedly using the ERASE and ERASE ALL camera options and not formatting can result in a buildup of file artifacts that may eventually cause the card to fail. Be sure to download and save any images on the memory card before formatting.
