    Hello, there!

    I have this 2GB MicroSD card for my R4 and I have no tools to format a disk into FAT on a Mac. (If you have one, pleeeease send it to me at this email)

    Would FAT32 be okay to use?

    Thank you!

    From http://gbatemp.net/t42846-the-definitive-r...mply-faq-thread -
    Q) Do I format my MicroSD to FAT16 or FAT32?
    A) The preferred option is FAT16 (just called FAT under Windows). FAT16 will run quicker than FAT32. FAT32 allows for larger capacity (over 2Gbytes), but since the largest MicroSD card is currently 2GByte, this isn't a problem.

    I know this isn't a direct answer, but it implies either will work. I checked the packaging of my boyfriend's genuine R4 and it says FAT32 is supported.
    My R4 clone does work with FAT32 for sure though.

    Thank you. I just finished formatting to FAT32, so everything is better.
