How to clear the SD card of recordings?

How do I clear the SD card of recordings that I don’t want anymore? Do I have to reformat the SD card to accomplish this??

Reformatting will certainly accomplish this, under normal recording it will record over the oldest first once it is full. If you do wish to delete some before that, the only ways I am aware of are:

  1. Reformat
  2. Remove from camera and put in a PC, find the videos you want deleted, you will find them recorded in a bunch of 1-minute files.

Yes, if something embarrassing is recorded on your SD card, reformat it. Otherwise in 3 days it will be gone by overwrite (32 GD card, HD mode).

Thanks for your prompt replies.

I’m sorta surprised that there’s no feature to easily clear any or all recordings on the SD card. Formatting seems to be a rather drastic measure and removing the SD card to selectively delete files in a PC seems tedious.

Formatting takes seconds. How is that tedious? Simplest thing you can do. And BTW, I never need to do it, why do you?

They meant the removing SD card and deleting files one by one was tedious. Which I agree but formatting is quick and painless.

I will share my experience with my SD card. I removed the SD card, placed in my card reader on my pc. Opened the file, “Selected All” (files on the card), hit delete. POOF! :thought_balloon:All videos gone in a matter of seconds. I put the card back in my cam and all back to normal. Very easy to do. :grinning:
