I've been looking around for a way to do this for a while, but I haven't been able to find the answer. I need to format my 2 GB SD card to FAT-32, but I don't see the option in Disk Utility.
If I select the SD drive (Apple SDXC Reader Media) and go to 'Erase,' I have the following format options:
- Mac OS extended (Journaled)
- Mac OS extended (Journaled, Encrypted)
- Mac OS extended (Case sensitive, Journaled)
- Mac OS extended (Case sensitive, Journaled, Encrypted)
- MS DOS (FAT)
Doing the same, but selecting the SD card itself (in my case,
NO NAME), I get all the same results, minus Mac OS X's with encryption.
I have read that selecting MS-DOS will chose between FAT-16 and -32, depending on the SD card's size. However, I have a 2 GB one.
Format: MS-DOS (FAT16) Owners Enabled: No Number of Folders: 0 Capacity: 1.98 GB (1,975,546,368 Bytes) Available: 1.79 GB (1,789,296,640 Bytes) Used: 186 MB (185,991,168 Bytes) --> (I have already backed up) Number of Files: 512
