NOTE: All Gobe memory cards and flash drives come pre-formatted and do not need to be formatted out of the box. Memory cards are formatted with the following standards:
|SD/microSD||2GB or lower||FAT16|
|SDHC/microSDHC||4GB to 32GB||FAT32|
|SDXC/microSDXC||64GB or higher||exFAT|
|CompactFlash||up to 128GB||FAT32|
Reformatting will clear file system corruption or quickly erase everything on the device. If re-formatting is needed, follow the steps below.
WARNING: Backup all your data before formatting. Formatting will erase all data on the memory device.
Formatting your memory device:
1. Double-click My Computer, or Computer (for Vista and Win7)
2. Right-click the drive letter associated with your memory device, then select Format
(in the sample image below, we right-clicked on H:).
WARNING: Make sure you select the correct drive letter.
3. Select a File system type.
4. Ensure “Quick Format” is checked
5. Click Start.
NOTE: exFAT is supported natively in WIN7 and WIN8. You will need to download a patch for Windows XP or VISTA to format a 64GB or larger device.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
