It's nice you agree now. As you stated: "so it may be a requirement of the flash memory... don't know for sure" regarding formatting it as FAT32 so I was attempting to help you out by clarifying that flash media can be formatted as anything you like. The reason for the specification using FAT32 is just so everything is standardized and any device can read/write to any card.
It's nice that you stick with using the SDformatter tool because their website stated it is the best. You are entitled to your opinion. I wasn't saying otherwise, just trying to clarify something you were not sure of.
