    Call me a newbie, but does Android store any critical data on the SD card?

    Just did a factory reset on my Sprint Hero in preparation for giving the phone to a family member, & I'd like to give them the phone with a clean slate on the SD card as well as the phone.
    Can I safely format the SD card?

    What is the best (for android) file system to use?

    Any help greatly appreciated!!! :eek:

    Yes you can format it safely. Use fat32 format.
