Increase Your MMC Storage

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 this:-
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
phones '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+ MBs
Do this at your own risk!
Be sure to close memory card
cap after you inserted it to
your phone.(6630)
