You may need to use a utility on your computer to do that although the calculator should have been able to do it. I see some references that FAT32 may also be supported but I can't confirm that.

I don't know if learning RPL would help with this problem, but it wouldn't hurt Smile

Thank you Steve,

The card is a SD not SDHC (by the way, very difficult to get one now a days).
Yes, the HP 50g recognises the FAT32 but is very slow at Start-up.
Without a card in slot, it starts even quicker.

Seems that "FORMAT" on the HP 50g only works on 1GB cards.

What I am real concerned about is about the bug´s . A machine that has errors, say not working a it should by specification , makes me don´t trust it. From my experience, one bug at one place causes other erros in other places.
So, for it is like "you never know". Smile

About that RPL learning, I will think about that when I am retired, that might be a good exercise, instead of playing Sudoku. Smile
