Formatting disks and drives
Hard disks, which are the primary storage devices on your computer, need to
be formatted before you can use them. Formatting a disk means configuring
the disk with a file system so that Windows can store information on the
disk. Hard disks in new computers running Windows are already formatted. If
you purchase an additional hard disk to expand the storage of your computer,
you might need to format it.

memory cards, might come preformatted by the manufacturer. CDs and DVDs use
formats that are different from hard disks and removable storage devices.
