Recently I've heard professional photographers talk about formatting their memory cards, as though they do it each time they start shooting. I only ever thought you had to fromat your memory card the first time you put it in your camera? In fact I'm sure I don't even need to do that - I've just bought a new one so I'll try it tonight but thinking back I'm sure last time I inserted a new memory card it didn't ask me to format it.
