How to make a FAT32 SD Card

Secure Digital cards are used to store data on many different types of devices, from digital cameras to laptops. SD cards are flash memory drives that slide into an SD card slot or card reader on the device. Data is written to the cards by the device and you can put them in a computer with a card reader to interact with the SD card as you would a hard drive. The FAT32 format allows an SD card to be read in many different operating systems because older versions of Windows do not recognize the NTFS format used in Windows 2000 and later versions.
