    What I would like to know is, when I have the memory chip inside the reader and plugged into the computer, if I delete what I am viewing will it also delete it from the memory chip while it is plugged into the computer and will that space be useable again.?

    I believe so but why not just check/test it.

    Delete a picture that is no good, remove the card then reinsert it and see if that image is still there.

    Well, I guess I could just do that. How about the space on the chip? Will it work as nothing has been on the chip previously? I guess if I just delete each time, I'll never have to purchase another chip is that right? I would say no, but I don't know personally.

    Are you talking about an SD memory card? If you delete files, they're gone. The space is freed up. It's just like a flash drive or hard drive.
