Formatting a PNY MicroSD removes all data from the memory card and repairs any corrupt data that may exist on the drive. Once formatted, the PNY MicroSD card can be used in a cell phone, digital camera or other portable electronic device. Since formatting erases all data, it's important to make sure that all data on the memory card has been backed up or is no longer needed.
