    are you formatting fat32 or fat16? i was under the impression that clustersize was always 4k for fat32. I could be wrong though

    if you are using fat16, the smallest cluster size you can use is 4KB (256MB / 2^16 clusters = 4096 bytes).
    since you are most likely going to be putting large files on there, I believe a larger cluster size would give slightly less wasted space.
