No need to use a PC or the EasyShare software at all. It's all done 'in-camera'. The PC software is for transferring files from camera-card to PC (and even that can be done without the EasyShare software) and for simple editing and printing. Any other processes on the card should be done in the camera so as to avoid the possibility of the card becoming corrupted and unusable.
Below applies to the Kodak EasyShare C433, but all EasyShare models should be the same or very similar:
Put the SD card back into the camera and switch on (auto). Press the 'menu' button.
Scroll down to 'Setup' and press 'OK' button.
Scroll down to 'Format' and press 'OK' button.
Select 'Memory Card' and press 'OK' button (this step only applies to cameras with additional internal memory)
You'll see a warning about "formatting will delete everything", Select 'Continue' and press 'OK' button.
Formatting will take a few seconds, after which the card will be empty, ready to use again.
Press 'Menu' button to return to normal shooting mode.
If the camera is no longer available, put the card in the reader but shut down the easyshare software if it starts automatically.
In 'My Computer' right-click the relevant drive letter corresponding to the card-reader slot, then select 'Format' from the context-menu.
This will wipe all images from the card.
Please note: Some SD cards have a small white "write protect" slider on the side to prevent any files from being deleted (similar to the floppy disk feature).
For formatting to proceed, this slider must be in the 'off' position (ie slide it fully towards the gold contacts end of the card).
Finally, if you only want to remove photos on a 'file by file' basis (rather than deleting the lot) that is also done 'in camera'.
Open the picture on the camera screen and press the 'Delete' button. Confirm deletion then press 'OK' button.
