Formatting Memory Cards
Formatting or erasing data on a memory card only changes file 
management information on the card and does not erase the data 
completely. When transferring or disposing of memory cards, take 
steps to protect personal information if necessary, as by physically 
destroying cards.
The total card capacity indicated on the formatting screen may be less than the 
advertised capacity.
