It all sounded so good up to that point...but maybe it is removed easily.

Hope so, KB. It's bad enough we suffer some memory loss from formatting let alone bloated junk we can't get rid off, I'll be damned!! - BLUEBOY

Probably just like Sandisk's U3 junk.

Hopefully the very handy HP USB format tool will dump all that junk as easily as it gets rid of U3.

Good to hear decent micro SD HC cards are coming, I want one for my phone.
Now they just have to fall from their silly initial prices.
