    I go to format my Micro SD and choose FAT, but the cluster drop down window only shows Default Allocation or something like that. How exactly do I change it to 64k? Im new to these things, so I have no clue if its a problem or if Im just being stupid lol. Appreciate any info.

    Edit--
    or run command
    Format X: /FS:Fat32 /A:8192
    X: = drive
    /FS: = File System
    /A: = cluster size

    basicly just run cmd, then type "help format" and it should tell you everything you need to know about formatting via command line

    I got it from that tip right there. Thanks Takrin. Last time I just right clicked on the drive through explorer and it didnt give me the option for cluster size. From the screen that you took me to though, it did.
