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..
