Emptying Memory Card

momtotwo__2May 4, 2008

I knew I could get help at this forum from so many of you who are knowledgeable about cameras.

I have a Sony DS650. I don't know how to empty my memory card. I have downloaded pictures into my computer, but they don't delete from my camera. Now, the memory card is full and I don't know what to do.

Your help is appreciated.

Can you insert the card directly into your computer?

No, I don't think so. I didn't know you could do that with certain cameras. I hook up the UBS port and put the pictures on the computer that way.

Is there a 'format' function or maybe a 'delete all' in camera? I usually use the format after I make sure the pics downloaded to computer ok.

Hit menu button (the one that says OK on it)
Arrow right for "mode menu"
Arrow down twice for "card"
Arrow right twice, & hit "OK" for option "all erase"
Camera will confirm, choose "yes"
Found this answer on the following web site.
Hope it helps. Mine has an option when downloading your pics to computer that allows you to delete the pics from the memory card.?? But I have a different camera so maybe its not the same for all cameras?

I format my card in my camera each time I use it. I always put my pictures on the computer right after I use it - then put the card back in my camera and reformat.

I was told to do it to prevent errors and data corruption.

Don't format the card in your computer - format it in your camera.
