    Formatting a SD card with FAT32


    I have a camera that requires a micro SD card with a USH-1 rating and U3 video level. The card I have is 128GB. The camera requires the card to be formatted with FAT32. When trying to format the card in Windows 10pro, the formatting options presented are NTFS and exFAT. I have tried exFAT but the camera will not recognize the card.


    Any help with formatting the card with FAT32 would be appreciated.

    :)

    Formatting my SD Card to FAT32

    So I recently purchased a 32GB SD card and need to format it to FAT32 to prepare it for storage-- except my computer constantly gives me the same error. Besides that, in the formatting menu I don't see an option to format it into FAT32 specifically0-- just
    NTFS, FAT (default), and exFAT.

    How do I get the SD formatted correctly?

    Formatting my SD Card to FAT32

    Hi Lyla,

    Insert the SD Card into your PC

    In Windows File Explorer, note down the drive letter of that SD Card

    Click your Start Button, type cmd and hit Enter

    Run the following command (replace X with the drive letter of your SD Card), then hit Enter:

    (you can copy and then right click in the command window to paste automatically)

    format /FS:FAT32 X:

    That should format your SD card to Fat32
