Question about GE J1455 Digital Camera
Erasing a memory card: when erasing a memory card, individual photos are
deleted from their directories on the card. You can erase one or more
user selected images at a time, or erase all images at one time.
However, any images that you've selected to be "protected" through
another menu option will not be removed during the erasure process.
Formatting a memory card: format a memory card sample menuFormatting, on the other hand, deletes all images from a memory card, even the ones that may have been protected. It recreates the file system including new directories and folders where images are saved on the card.
Unlike erasing, formatting improves the overall performance of a card.
Low level formatting: some digital cameras offer a low level format in addition to the standard format option. With a low level format, all data on the card is deleted. New directories and folders are also recreated during this process.
A low-level format of a high speed memory card helps ensure smooth continuous shooting at a constant interval. For optimal video performance, it's also recommended that a low level format be done sometime prior to recording.
In camera, not computer: though opinions vary, many recommend formatting a memory card in a digital camera, not via a computer. If you plan to use a memory card that was previously used in another camera, format the card in the new camera before taking any shots.
