SD Card and long time with formatting

Recommended Posts

Hi, about the long time formatting:

Which version of SD Card Suite are you using?

The format tool is using a Windows API that was working fast on XP, but from Vista and onwards the format became very slow.

At some point (in mid 2013), I've changed one of the flags sent to the API, which should make the format fast (tested here few times).

However, if you still suffer a slow format, then you can use the option to "format drive using Windows", which should load Windows format dialog, and after it finishes formatting, the SD Card formatter would create the relevant directories.
