Formating memory card...? Conrad 11/8/2006
I have a flir b20 hs and I formatted my memory card to erase all images, and when I reinstall it on the camera it says it needs a fat16 format, and my puter only gives me a fat or fat32 option. Any where I can get this plugin? I don't want to keep buying cards... thanks Conrad

Most operating systems offer several choices, when formatting.
Scrolling list should appear.
See the attached screen copy, for Windows XP.

Yes, that's correct. Please formatr the card as FAT. Do not format the card ae FAT32, or NTFS.

If the computer solution doesn't work, perhaps a digital camera that uses the same memory card and has a "format" function could format your memory media. If not, you may need to replace the memory card(s). In the future, do not format the media, just delete the images with the computer.
