    Hi

    I'm about to migrate from a HTC Touch Cruise (WinMo) to a HTC Desire (Android).

    I've got a 6GB Micro SD card that's formatted as FAT32 with music, etc. on. Will it run OK on the Desire, or will it need formatting?

    Thanks

    Rob

    Personally i would save anything you want to keep & format the card anyway, this ensures optimum performance between card & phone.
    You can use it though if you like as it is.

    I was hoping someone wouldn't say that! It's only a class 2 card and the write speed is sloooow!!

    But thanks for the advice. I was thkining of getting a Class 6 16gb card anyway, so might have to bring that purchase forward :)

    Its not necessary to format but advisable to, the card will or should work fine as its fat32.
