    OK, this is just so weird. Referencing t'internet....I come across several
    references on how to format a MMC card for the Nokia 6230i. The only problem
    is, about 50% of what I've read tells me to format with the FAT file
    system......and 50% say format with the FAT32 file system. And now I'm just
    doubly confused. Also, the ones who say format with FAT32 system say that if
    you format the card from within the phone.....that it [wrongly] formats with
    the FAT file system...and so to use your PC to format it, either by a card
    reader or via your PC/Windows in USB storage mode (where the flashcard will
    show up as a storage device).

    What a man to do???? :/

    AFAIK all the Nokia memory cards need to be formatted in FAT 16.

    Yeah, which is same as FAT. It seems you're right. The people, of which
    there are many it seems, saying use FAT32, are just plain talking out of
    their bottoms. I referenced a Moby Memory (MMC/SD card specialists) pdf help
    file, it clearly says use FAT (or FAT16, as you call it).

    Cheers.
