Limitation of Windows Format command

With a block size of 512 bytes, 2GB is the max formattable by the Windows command. For FAT32.

More than that, you need a bigger block size, up to 8192.

Maximum volume size is 32GB. Unless you use a different program to format your cf card.

Have a nice day Thomas. :)
