    Format is for your memory card. Reset is for the camera.

Format will wipe clean your memory-card like new - Always.
so normally avoid that button.

if you lost some photos using the format then there maybe some chance to get them back.

take out the card and put it in external card reader.

Now get hold of some file recovery software like 'GetDataBack for FAT32' (buy/borrow/steal :) ) install it on your computer, GetDataBack should be able to pull back the data.

Let me know if any more clarifications needed.

How do I delete all my pictures off of my samsung s760?


There are basically two ways to delete all the pictures on the card.
If you don't mind erasing all the data on the card, the best way to get rid of it is to format the card. Formatting flash cards (SD, SDHC, SDXC, MMC, CF, Memory Stick pro or duo, etc) actually helps the cards last longer. To format the card, enter review mode (usually a button with an arrow pointing to the right) and press menu, navigate to format card and press enter / ok.
To just delete all pictures, enter review mode and press the delete button (usually looks like a trashcan). That should open single delete mode. Press delete again to open multi-delete mode.
Both directions should work on most common camera models (Sony, Canon, Nikon, Olympus, etc).
Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

How do you erase all of the stored pics on the sd card at once?


Use the Format command to quickly delete all images from the memory card. This will also prevent fragmenting of the memory - which can significantly slow the transfer of images to your computer - and increase the amount of time it takes to save a picture after pressing the shutter button.

To format a card on in your camera, at the main menu choose "Settings" then select "Format".

I hope this helped!

I need to delete pictures from my samsung L100 all at once. It only allows me to delete single pics.. Can you help?


One way to do this if the camera does not have the function itself is to connect the camera to a computer with a USB lead. Then you can access the camera memory like any disk drive, select all files and delete in one go. You will need to install the driver supplied with the camera to do this. Samsung do not advise that you remove the memory card and connect it to a computer with a card reader.

However, this camera DOES have a function to delete all the images. You need to enter the Playback menu, select DELETE and press the right arrow button. This will give a menu selection for selecting an image to delete or deleting all images.

If you don't have the manual anymore, there is a downloadable user guide for this camera on the Samsung site here:

How do I erase all of the photos on the memory stick?


The best way to erase all photos on the memory card is to format it. This should be done every time you finish downloading your pictures to your computer, to prevent the card from getting fragmented.

To format a card on the L100, from the main menu select Settings (the gear and wrench icon). From there select Format.

Pushed the Format button on my L100 Samsung Digital camera and my memory card was erased??? Please explain this?


formatting the memory card automatically erases all the files in the memory card.
it's like restoring the memory card to factory settings to be compatible with your camera.

when you format the memory card using the camera the camera erases everything then creates folders that the camera needs to store pictures in your memory card.

you can try to look for software that can TRY to retrieve the images but i cannot assure you that this will work

You can use the MEMORY FORMAT functions to completely delete all images and options on the Memory Card, including protected images. * The format function restores the Memory Card to its initial state. * The Memory Card supplied with this camcorder has been formatted already. Attention If you execute the MEMORY FORMAT function, all images will be erased completely and erased images cannot be recovered. 1. Set the mode switch to MEMORY CARD. 2. Set the power switch to PLAYER mode. 3. Press the MENU button. 4. Turn the MENU DIAL to highlight MEMORY and press the ENTER button. The sub menu will appear. 5. Select FORMAT from the list and press the ENTER button. 6. "ALL FILES ARE DELETED! FORMAT REALLY?" appears on the screen. 7. Using the MENU DIAL, select the item. NO : To return to previous menu YES : To start formatting. 8. Press the ENTER button. If you selected the YES, COMPLETE! appears on the screen when the MEMORY CARD formatting is finished. 9. To exit the menu, push the MENU button.
