SD Card Using RAW File Format?
I've been having a heck of a time using my 1 gig Sandisk SD Card in my Belkin Card Reader. It won't recognize it until I put a CF card in the reader as well. I figured it was the card reader, as my Axim has no problem using the card at all. It's a minor inconvenience, but annoying none-the-less. Last night I brought up the properties of the card once I could get the reader to recognize it, and it said it is using the RAW file format. I didn't format it when I got it, but I thought the Axim did when I inserted it for the first time, but I could be mistaken.
Anyways, I figure that if I re-format the card using FAT-16 or FAT-32 that perhaps the card reader would have better luck recognizing it. The problem is that I have several programs installed on the card, and I don't want to have to re-install everything. If I copy everything from the card to my desktop, format the card, and then copy everything back to the card will everything be okay, or will switching the file formats screw something up? I thought about ghosting the card, but when I re-image it won't it just change the file format back to RAW?
Also, if I do re-format the card which file system is best to use for my Axim x50v? Will it work with NTFS?
