Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have about 400 pictures on my memory card right now, and i need to delete them all for more room, but i can only delete one picture at a time! is there any way i can delete them all at once? i already have them saved on my computer...i just want a clear card


Answers :

To clear the card completely, format it. In fact, memory cards should be formatted each time you finish downloading the pictures. This prevents the fragmentation that occurs if the pictures are deleted individually.\012\012\012

Since you didn't specify the make and model of your camera, I can't give you specific instructions on how to format the card. It's probably somewhere in the camera's setup menu.
