Understanding Computers/Digital Camera


Hello Dan, first let me tell you that I know this is probably not your area of expertise, but I'm still hoping that you will be able to help me. If I format the sd memory card directly from my digital camera, will this get rid of any virus present on the memory card? I'm using a Sony Cybershot DSC-W530 digital camera. Any help given will be deeply appreciated. Thank you and "Happy Holidays"

Hello Gabrielle,
Thanks for asking this question.

I assume you have some errors with SD memory card.  
When you format any memory card or space in PC or other digital unit, all contents in the memory card/space are completely erased and gone.  Formatting is doing more than just delete.
Formatting should purge everything on the memory.
