SD format for Swiss?

Post by andzlay » Wed Feb 16, 2011 7:32 pm

Hi

can anyone recommend anything about formatting a SDHC for Swiss?
I format mine with FAT32 and standard blocksize (or whatever it's called in english) will try it out soon. Or is some extra tool better? I remember of panasonic something.

It doesn't matter at all (yet).
Just make sure the file system isn't fragmented. As long as Swiss is not supporting fragmentation, the way it is formatted (regular/parasonic, or blocksize) doesn't matter.
The file system should still be FAT/32 though.

As usual, don't pin me down on this, as I'm not the developer. :)

Well on the Wii there is a loader called "uLoader" that can load games off a FAT32 drive. The author hermes recommends to use 32kb clusters for optimal speed.

SDHCs in that size are reaaally rare and nobody really pays for them, so...i was guessing that he owns one smaller than 137gb :P

Either are way to expensive for me to consider getting, I just won a 500GB IDE HDD for £24.26 on ebay should get my IDE EXI redeliver in a few hours :-)p
