So my father found an SD card and naturally, I advised him not to put it into his computer as there could be all sorts of viruses on it. However, I'm wondering about a solution that might make the card safe to use.
In my Canon DSLR, there's an option to low-level format any inserted SD card. According to this source, the low-level format actually wipes all data and essentially resets the partition. So, will this low-level format wipe all viruses that might be on that card? And is it safe to insert the card into my camera? I assume though, as I find it pretty unlikely that any virus that someone has planted on that card will work on the OS of a DSLR.
