Can I format my SDHC card using my DSi?

#1 Posted by rmills87 (463 posts) -

I have an 8GB SDHC card with some old Wii Ware stuff on it and want to format the card, however I do not have either a Wii any longer or an SDHC card reader to format it on my PC. Any help? Or am I going to have to buy a card reader? Thanks in advance!

IIRC, you can't format a SD card with a DSi. You can only use whatever free space it has, if the DSi can read the format (which I guess is FAT or even FAT32, but not NTFS). If you have a "better" piece of hardware, like a digital camera or a tablet, you may be able to format the SD card there. You can get a card reader for a couple bucks, though.
