    alright, well I'm thinking of selling my digital camera on eBay, and included, is 3 SmartMedia cards. I have nothing to be ashamed of on these cards, but I'd like for my family/girlfriend/pet be mine and mine only, you know what I mean? when I goto take the pictures off the camera/card, I format it, I don't just clear the pictures... are they completely, 100% gone for good? or will they still show up if someone ran a program on it? I downloaded a program off of here a long time ago that would go through your card and still be able to find like the last pictures you took and I was able to pull pictures off of it, but I cannot remember if I formatted or just deleted them..... am I safe to sell it if I format the pictures, or what? sorry if this is all confusing, I know I will get a simple answer, lol :o
