I was having a problem where my camera on my 8330 would default to storing photos on the device rather than the media card. I did everything suggested except for formatting my media card from the day I installed it. My question is this, if I format it now with programs that I have added, these programs are going to be deleted as well, is this correct? Thanks.

I'm a bit confused. Your programs are all stored in the device memory, not on the memory card. However, yes - formatting your card will delete everything on the card if you have not backed it up on your computer first.

Unlike a reset weather soft or hard, everything will be erased when performing a format. Just conect your BB to your PC and ensure that Mase Storage Mode is enabled (on your BB); copy the contents (except any system/hidden files) over to your PC. Format the card and copy everything back.

After which you should be good to go.
