I wonder if there is something about the brand of card that makes a difference or if there is data on the chip. I have installed four chips, one SanDisk and three Kingston and none of them need to be formatted.

When I started up the Pearl, the folders appeared on the chip.

But looks like the format the card [while the chip is on the Pearl] is a step some people may need to take.

Thanks for the post. I'll add it into my instructions.
