    If you can’t format it in Fat16 buy right clicking on the G6 icon & picking format.
    Try this freeware program “HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool” works great on
    SD cards should work the same on the G6.

    Right-click and Format goes...
    But I don't know If I click format...It will do it in FAT or FAT 32....

    And, this "HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool", I will try it on a PC with Windows XP...

    Freeware for Windows XP, Windows 2000

    Just to clarify FAT == FAT16 (mainly old DOS), FAT32 (Windows 3.11 (i think) and up), NTFS == Windows XP and i believe Vista as well.

    Close LOL

    Fat 12 is the first version of Fat from the old days

    Fat 16 is from DOS and up

    Fat 32 started with Win 95

    NTFS is Win NT and up

    if you bothered to check the format command by typing format /? under the command prompt, it would of answered all your questions, but it seems like you are not dos competent so this is what you do:

    Bring up the command prompt

    type this:

    fomat [driveletter]: /FS:FAT /A:64K

    almost correct: FAT32 started with 2nd version of WIN 95; (Win 95 OSR 2)
    original Win 95 supported long file names on FAT16
