Formatting
z
Please note that formatting (initializing) an memory card
erases all data, including protected images.
z
You are recommended to use memory cards that have been
formatted in your camera.
• The card supplied with the camera may be used without
further formatting.
• When the camera is malfunctioning, a corrupted memory card
might be the cause. Reformatting the memory card may solve the
problem.
• When a non-Canon brand memory card is malfunctioning,
reformatting it may solve the problem.
• Memory cards formatted in other cameras, computers, or
peripheral devices may not operate correctly in this camera.
When that happens, reformat the memory card with this
camera.
z
If formatting in the camera does not work properly, turn the
camera off and re-insert the memory card. Then turn the
camera back on and format again.
z
Be careful when transferring or disposing of a memory
card. Formatting or erasing the data on a memory card
merely changes the file management information on the
card and does not ensure that its contents are completely
deleted.
When disposing of a memory card, take precautions, such
as physically destroying the card, to prevent personal
information leaks.
