which tool would you use to format a 128 SD card into FAT32?

I used Wii Backup Manager because I already had it. No problems so far.

Use this to format high capacity SD cards to FAT32. Choose the 65536 cluster option.

further research could be pointed to use partitions, we're using only 1st one,
AFAIK it possible to use 4, so it might be the way to extend capacity of storage device,
but more partitions means more complicity of code support.
bit need to test, might be on DCIO as it hasgot the access to IDE(SATA) HDD

This card works great when formatted to FAT32 standards. 128GB is more than enough for my gaming needs with PSIO!!!
MateriaMind, what about yours?

Awesome. Have you used it with any multi-disc games? Any games converted with the System Console? How many games do you currently have on it?

Thanks.

Hey aloram- My 128GB card is still working beautifully. This is the ideal card for PSIO if you want a sizeable library all in one go.

Thanks. Is that the seller you bought it from?

Not a problem dude!!! I would recommend getting one. They are quite handy to have. Took awhile for me to transfer my some odd 115-130 disc images. I downloaded a bunch of the PlayStation demo disc's like the PlayStation Underground collection etc. I miss those old demo disc's more than the actual disc based games. I swear the demo disc was the old calling card that got me hooked on the PS1.

Dunno, but IMHO a 64GB SD card, is the biggest one that makes sense to use with a PSIO to me. Why?
Because if the manual is correct, the maximum number of items (games, folders etc.) on a SD is 254 and every game needs to be in a folder. That makes a maximum of 125 games on a SD card. If you calculate 600MB as a average per game you will need approx. 73GB. So, if this limitation is still existing, i would say a 128GB is a big waste and two 64GB are way better.

That this person managed to have 213 working games on a single SD card, is according to the manual simply impossible.

It's possible. Some prep is required however like removing junk data from the images.

I have that same SD card and I have 207 individual games on it, included in that are some multidisc games. It's not impossible. What's in the manual is just what was reliably tested and recommended by the devs.

Yeah- using anything over 32GB is not really advised. But I use a 128GB card myself and no problems yet- THANKFULLY.

So has anyone gotten a 256GB card to work with no issues?

Matt once recommended using 32kb for the allocation size. Any reason you went with 64kb?
