Format a storage device on the console

Can I format a storage device on the console?

(PM1D, PM5D) No, you cannot. When you format the PCMCIA storage device from the PC for those consoles, use FAT16. (PM1D: FAT12 is also available.)

(M7CL, LS9) Yes, you can. The M7CL and the LS9 can handle FAT32, FAT16, or FAT12 file systems; if you format the storage device from the console it will be formatted as FAT16. Long file names are not supported. Operation is guaranteed only for USB flash memory that is no larger than 2 GB.
Note:
A partitioned USB flash memory is not supported.

(DM2000) Yes, you can. We strongly recommend that you format the storage device on the console.
