AFAIK you can do anything to a USB storage device that you can to a
directly attached disk. I haven't tried to reformat an SD or CF card,
but I have successfully used fdisk to define a USB disk drive as a
single ext3 partition and fsck to format it as ext3.

I'd be quite surprised if a program running in normal user space, i.e.
not as root, can do that.
