I just got a new microsd card, do i format a new micro sd card on the phone or pc?
I would do it on the phone. Here are the steps from the manual.
Formatting the microSD Card
Formatting a microSD card permanently removes all files
stored on the card.
1. Press > > Settings > SD Card & Phone Storage.
2. Tap Unmount SD Card and confirm your selection by
tapping OK to release the microSD card from its use by the
3. Once released, tap Format SD Card > Format SD Card >
Once completely formatted, the card is automatically remounted
(reconnected for use by the device).
NOTE: The formatting procedure erases all the data on the microSD card, after
which the files CANNOT be retrieved. To prevent the loss of important
data, please check the contents before you format the card.
Does formatting a new card free up more space?
Thanks, do you know if i can format with two separate partitions?
I suppose you can but I'm not familiar with the procedure.
There was some discussion about partitioning in this thread.
