Strange problem with compact flash cards
by llewyn - 2/10/10 4:02 PM
I recently bought about 30 4 megabyte compact flash cards. Yes, that is correct, 4 megabyte. They are to give out as samples to be used in Windows Mobile pocket pcs.
I tried to format some of them to fat32 in my HP pavilion running XP. The only choices that were listed were ex Fat and Fat (which I understand to be Fat 16).
Before or after formatting, these cards freeze the pocket pcs when I try to insert them.
Can anyone explain the strange behavior - why the cards cannot be formatted as fat32 or why they freeze the pocket pcs?
