View Full Version : Clie NX cards (FAT or FAT32)
02-08-2005, 12:19 PM
While Fiddling with my files, I noticed it's formatted for FAT. And my files is 162MB on my card but just over 147MB on my NTFS Windows XP.
When I formatted the card to FAT32 on my PC, the card is not recognized. Does Clie NX80 (and Palm OS5 in general) handle FAT32?

Sorry to correct you, but NO PalmOS device supports FAT32.

And Fat16 only is also the reason for the 2GB max for microdrives in clies.

I am sorry to dissapoint you all:
No FAT32 on OS4, OS5....
BTW, try formatting the memory card with a smaller cluster size. There is a forum topic about this somewhere, it should help you.
BTW, here is a short explanation about why the files bloat:
Each File on a FAT/NTFS File system needs to have a size that equals a num,ber of clusters. Lets now say that we have a cluster size of 8KB and a 4kb file-Size on disk is 8KB, because a full cluster needs to be used.
