Formatting AirStash Media vs. 8Gb Flash Card in Airstash

Formatting AirStash Media vs. 8Gb Flash Card in Airstash

Wanting to use 8Gb Flash Card as media for El Capitan Installer, With 8Gb Flash Card installed in AirStash, using OS X Disk Utility I have the options in the attached figure 'Airstash Media.jpeg'

The figure shoes 2 devices:

1. 'Wearable AirStash Media' - the interface for the 8 Gb Flash Card

2. JAMAR - the 8Gb Flash Card, plugged into the Airstash Media

An article I read stated the 8Gb Flash Card should be formatted as on the attached, 'OS X Extended (Journaled) with Scheme: GUID Partition Map.

OS X Disk Utility shows 2 formatting options. My goal is to format only the 8 Gb Flash Card with Scheme: GUID Partition Map.

If I choose to format the 'Airstash Media', will I destroy the 'Airstash Media' device operating system..
