OCTCORE 09:41 02 Nov 2009 Locked Hello there,Is FAT the same as FAT 16 ?I wonderd if these formats are so old now that XP only shows the difference between FAT and FAT32So if an SD card is FAT12/16 it will only show up as FAT.I have a DAB radio which is known to have issues if the SD card is not formatted in FAT 16, but even when formatted in the radio itself it shows FAT in XP ?
