    I wanted to load up an A-DATA 16GB Class 6 card with music tonight so I can listen to music at work on the Evo tomorrow at work after i pick up phone in the morning...my questions is, since my PC (Windows 7) didn't need to format the card, will the phone need to do any formatting? Hoping I can just throw the card in at Radio Shack and enjoy my tunes, thanks! :)

    From what I understand fat32 is the correct formatting.

    Get SD Formatter from sdinfo.org and FULL format your card ahead of time. Slap it into the Evo and if the Evo complains that you have a blank card, just reformat it in the phone again (a QUICK format).
