    Excuse for being a noob, but I tried a few things out and it didnt work. What I want to do is completely format the SD card so that its exactly like how I bought it.

    I tried doing a soft reset with not luck (Setting->Privacy->Factory data reset). I also tried to do a hard reset with the SD card still in. Even after all this there is still old app data as well as my music and photos. I want to do a complete format so all of it is gone.

    Is there a way to do this without manually deleting the stuff I don't want?
