Good morning to you all. Hey, I have another couple “rookie” questions for
anyone to help me out with, please. SD cards.
Before I go and potentially destroy a few small older cards I thought that I’d
ask. I use Apple/Mac hardware and last night while I was running the Disk
Utility program it occured to me that I had never put an SD card into the
Reader while I had this particular program running. So I plugged one in that I
had used in an Oly EM1 and the format that was on the card was identified as
being MS-DOS (FAT 32). I pulled one out of a Leica M9 and it was identified as
being the same, MS-DOS (FAT 32). My questions are:
1) Do all digital cameras now work exclusively with the MS-DOS (FAT 32) format,
or would re-formating into another protocol such as Ex-FAT or one of the Mac’s
(Mac OS Extended, Journaled or Mac OS Extended, Case-Sensitive, Journaled) work
or render the card useless at least for camera use?
2) If another format would work, what would be the advantage(s), if any?
