put the sd card into your drive and right click and format, it will wipe the card of all contents, save games to comp before doing this

Stick it in your computer.
Goto "MY COMPUTER"
You should see an Icon for the micro sd card
Right mouse click on the icon and select FORMAT
Format to FAT32

Another question?? and i feel a bit stupid for asking but when i download the lastest firmware what do i do with it next?

you are starting from scratch, your card will be clean, so you will need to do everything you did the 1st time you got it, did you use thesaints thread to install your firmware 1st time around
