    Sorry if this has been asked before, but I've been looking on here for an hour and can't find an answer to my exact question.

    I bought a new 32GB sd card for my MyTouch 4G, and am trying to put it in my phone. Everyone says to format the card under Settings-SD & phone storage. But when I go to this, there is NO choice for Formatting. I have:

    Total Space
    Available Space
    Unmount SD card
    Erase SD card

    as my options...

    It shows the card as having 29.71 GB available, but HOW am I supposed to format it? Does it automatically format it when I mount it?

    THANK YOU!

    It appears that the position in the menu structure that used to read Format SD Card now (Gingerbread) reads Erase SD Card. Are they the same? I don't know. You could always format it in your PC (assuming your PC has a slot for an SD card).
