    Hello, I'm a noob to the boards here. I just have a simple question, would appreciate any help. I just got a new M3 Simply and a 1gb Kingston Japan card. I'm just wondering what format & encryption to use, Fat 16 or Fat 32, on the card for it to work best on the Simply. I've read in some reviews that the FAT 16 was the optimal choice to use, but that was just the reviewers personal preference in doing so. How much of a difference does it actually make? Thank you

    FAT(16) is apparently faster
    FAT32 keeps files more organized

    It's your choice

    FAT 16 is fine if you only have 1GB. 2 or more go with FAT32
