Question about Cameras
Thanks for asking me to be your Tech Buddy.
On to your concern, normally yes, you would have to format the HDD/memory card. This could be done internally using the onboard format command/feature of the camera.
Alternately, if the HDD/memory card is removable, you can use a USB connected card reader or HDD adapter and then using the format command in your PC.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
