Is it a must to format new SD card for camera before using?
The five cameras that I have had that used SD cards didnot need a formatting of the card before using it in the cameras. One of these cars will not be recognized in a couple of USB card holders that I have tried and it will not be recognized by the built in SD card reader in my stationary computer but I can read the card through the camera's USB connection so I'm not worrying about it.

Yes. No problem. Unless the camera is really old. Just try it it won't hurt it.
If it's new, don't format it unless you have to. Try it out first and make sure you get the correct number of shots for your camera's megapixels.. It's better to delete the p…hotos while the SD card is in your camera, rather than format it in your pc. Some SD cards are pre-formatted by the manufacturer, and I've found that if I format this one particular brand, I get a lesser number of shots!
\n. \nthere really is no specific card for either... they are designed to work on both. it is like a thumb drive that only fits in a SD slot.
I formatted my SD card on my computer instead of in my digital camera and now the camera won't recognize it. Is there anything I can do or is this formatting mistake irreversible?

It depends mostly on what card your using, the docking port for most SD's will fit in most digital camera's. So yes, it's worth a try
You click the button on the left and twist the lense. You then need to read the instructions because i have forgotten the rest... :( Sorry about the ending:'(
Try formatting it on your computer.
Yes you can, a typical camera SD card is exactly the same thing as the DSi uses.
