with fat16 your usually limited to only 2-3g of space - so i would definitely not recommed converting back - especially if you have a nice 40g hard drive

Just to support the others - there is absolutely no reason why you could need to go back to FAT16. It has no advantages, only disadvantages.

If you can tell us why you think you should, we can offer further advice.
