    Deleting photos from the micro memory disk that comes with the quad should not be so difficult. I can copy or transfer them to any file, just can't clear the disk for new images.

    Anyone have any suggestions other than formatting the disk.

    Thanks

    I use my PC,
    I transfer all images/videos to my external hard drive using
    RIGHT CLICK " CUT " then RIGHT CLICK " PASTE " In external
    Hard drive, doing this will automatically delete file from card,
    as it transfers it to the external HD. ( NOTE: to speed things up
    HOLD DOWN " CONTROL ( CTRL ) " key, then highlight all files you
    Want to transfer from sd card and you can do multiple transfers at once!
    Now if you choose RIGHT CLICK " COPY " it makes a copy of it to
    External HD, and leaves a copy in SD CARD, you'll need to open sd
    File and use RIGHT CLICK " DELETE " to delete them, ( NOTE: you can
    Also use the HOLDDOWN " CTRL " button gimmick here as well!
    I believe the only way to delete through APP, is formatting!

    Hope this helps!

    Sorry *** me. I forgot to check the lock unlock miniature switch on the side of the adapter. They are now deleted.

    Very odd the delete isn't an option in your context menu.

    Have you tried the Delete button on your keyboard? That should work.
