The SD Memory Card Formatter was created specifically for memory cards using the SD/SDHC/SDXC standards. 

It is strongly recommended to use the SD Memory Card Formatter instead of formatting utilities provided with operating systems that format various types of storage media. Using generic formatting utilities may result in less than optimal performance for your memory cards.
