    1. Plug in MicroSD Card
    2. Go to My Computer
    3. Right Click the MicroSD Card's Icon
    4. Select Format
    5. Select either FAT or Fat32
    6. Click the Format button

    Really simple and requires no extra software.

    Doing it that way can cause problems. It's always better to use the official formatter.

    Yea, using the official formatter can help with some troublesome games. I had problems with Portrait of Ruin even though my sd card is a class 6. When I formatted it properly with the software, I got no more freezes. [​IMG]
