    I format a card in the camera before I use it...but I'm not sure if you have to do it...but it won't hurt.

    Also, when I off load the card onto my computer...and I'm sure they are safely on the hard drive...I format the card. Or I wait until my next shoot...then format the card or cards that I will use. It's just like erasing the old images off of it.
