    I read that somewhere in a previous topic and I was wondering if that was what I was supposed to do? If it is, how do I do it? I right clicked on the drive my SDHC was in and clicked Format but under File System, I only recieved FAT32.

    I believe you can't put FAT16 on SDHC, as FAT16 has a limit of 2GB.

    Sorry about that. That was stupid of me. I didn't do my research and on some topics, people mentioned FAT32 is the only format for SDHC. Sorry!

    How do you do that? The options under the drop-down lists are very limited and it only offers one option for all categories.

    It must've not been supported in 98 then, that's the last time I used FAT16 before my 2GB SD card.
