    Can someone tell me the easiest way to wipe all of the data that I have put on my Eee Transformer Prime? (I'm returning it and I want to reset it to the original condition that I received it (minus the ICS update):)

    In your settings there should be an option to reset to factory settings. Most devices also have the option to wipe anything on an sd card.

    Hmm, I checked around on both my Prime and Nexus and couldn't find anything in the settings. I wonder if the stock recovery has that option?

    since the sd is removable wiping it would not be necessary if you just took it out

    On the left side. Just push it in, it will click and pop out.

    I popped it out and put it back in again. It doesn't appear to have changed anything. I downloaded my music and it is still on the device. Do these tablets contain an SSD? and if so, how can they be wiped?

    Your music probably downloaded to internal storage. Called "SD card". Your actual micro card is listed "removable". But, if you removed it, and put it back in, it will read again.
