    In Windows XP/Vista, FAT16 is just called FAT.

    You can format your card by right clicking it in My Computer and selecting "Format".

    Use SD card formatter. NEVER, I repeat, NEVER use format option in Windows.

    Google SD Card formatter and use that to format you SD card. It will automatically select FAT16 or FAT32 depending on your card.
