How to format storage card?

I got a prompt asking me if I wanted to format my storage card on my H3950, and I denied. Now that I have deleted the files I need to off that card, how can I manually format it, or get that prompt again?

You don't need to format it if it doesn't ask you to. You can do it from your PC or a camera. If neither of these are possible then you can get Pocket Mechanic on your IPAQ which will do it..

How to format my phone

Remove the storage card from your device, insert your storage card to card reader and plug it in your PC, open my computer, right click on the storage card drive icon, select format.
This the best way to format card and if you want to format entire cell then you have to do it just manually deleting files and contacts.

i suppose, by formatting, you mean to reset the phone to the factory settings.. you can do it by start > settings > system > clear storage or else you can do it by pinning the reset hole with the help of the stylus
hope it helps

Can I erase more than one picture at a time? It only lets me do one and doesn't ask "erase all?" like some cameras do.

if you want to erase all ..just get to the menu ..and memory card ..and choose format ..this will erase all into the camera and format the card again which is a good thing in case you had errors..
anyway the view has to have something called multiple deleting or erasing ...and in there you can sort the pictures by name and delete them all at once ..
