      ATTENTION

      When the card is formatted, all images and data in the card will be erased. Even protected images will be erased, so make sure there is nothing you need to keep. If necessary, transfer the images to a computer, etc., before formatting the card.

      NOTE

      About Low-level Formatting
      • Do low-level formatting if the card's recording or reading speed seems slow.
      • Since low-level formatting will erase all recordable sectors in the card, the formatting will take slightly longer than normal formatting.
      • You can stop the low-level formatting by selecting [Cancel]. Even in this case, normal formatting will have been completed and you can use the card as usual.


      IMPORTANT

      • When the card is formatted or data is erased, only the file management information is changed. The actual data is not completely erased. Be aware of this when selling or discarding the card. When discarding the card, execute low-level formatting or destroy the card physically to prevent the data from being leaked.
      • Before using a new Eye-Fi card, the software in the card must be installed in your computer. Then format the card with the camera.


      REFERENCE

      The card capacity displayed on the card format screen might be smaller than the capacity indicated on the card.
