Should A SDHC Memory Card Be Formatted Before Use?

Post by Wyz on Wed Dec 04, 2013 3:39 pm

  I just received one for the Holidays, and I've looked for the answers via DuckDuckGo and Google, but haven't found the answer I'm looking for, yet.

It's a San Disk 32 GB memory card that I want to save YouTube , Vimeo , etc Videos that are currently stored on my Vista for viewing on my Win7, and for general safe keeping.  So many videos eventually disappear from DMCA or whatever  reason, and I just like making sure I have a personal copy of  'em.

I do have quite a few SDHC cards and MicroSD cards that had to be formatted for the devices I used them in. . mp3 players ( Creative  MX, X-Fi , and X-F2 )  , but this is strictly for offline playing on a laptop and/or DVD player.  ( I just remembered I had one; I bought it about 6 years ago and haven't used it much because I frankly don't understand it.Embarassed )

[I'll have to clean up my typos , etc later . . the online groceries just arrived . . .not aMAZON]

I thought I had read awhile ago that all memory cards were already formatted correctly so I found the website I had read this on and see that it's actually states all sandisk memory cards are correctly formated.

I was going to post the webpage with formating info but I guess I'm not allow to post a link for 7 days so I'll just paste the info in here.

NOTE: All SanDisk memory cards and flash drives come pre-formatted and do not need to be formatted out of the box. Memory cards are formatted with the following standards:

SD/microSD 2GB or lower FAT16
SDHC/microSDHC 4GB to 32GB FAT32
SDXC/microSDXC 64GB or higher exFAT
CompactFlash up to 128GB FAT32
CompactFlash 256GB exFAT

Hi Nquale and welcome to the forums.  I set up the posting links rule to keep spammers from signing up and posting multiple links.  Sorry for any inconvenience and I'll look into rescinding that for you.

Thanks for the information.
