°ºôºincrease mmc space s60 ºôº

-Your files in MMC are stored in
multiple (disk) blocks.
So if you format using 16K block,
the space used will be 16K
eventhough your file is just 1K.
If you buy MMC, it is usually
preformatted with 16K block.
Therefore alot of space is wasted
as most installed program files
are usually less than 2K.
You will need a card reader to do
1. Connect card reader and copy
all your files in the MMC to
computer disk.
(Make sure you set the show all
hidden os files to "on")
2. Do a format of the MMC using
command line "format" and use
the A=size option.
Alternative, you can use the Disk
Management in Adminstrative
Tools to format.
Make sure you select FAT. For
256MB MMC, smallest block you
can use is 4K, 128MB is 2K, 64Mb
is 1K and 32MB is 512B.
(Note: You cannot use the phone
"format MMC" to do this as the
format just clear the allocation
table and does not change the
block size)
3. Copy back all files to MMC.
Now you will find that you will
have more space.
256Mb MMC got back 30+ Mb.
