storage/ pen drive/ memory card Format NTFS or FAT32?

What format should I use for my storage/ pen drive/ memory card? Why I can't copy/ move files such as movies into my storage/ pen drive/ memory card? The answer to this question is simple. For me, it would definitely be NTFS if your device can read NTFS.

Before we look into the matter further, let me break down the differences between NTFS and FAT32.


Why Choose NTFS:

1. Allows you to copy single file larger than 4GB such as a movie into storage/ pen drive/ memory card with NTFS format.

2. Allows you to put more files in your storage/ pen drive/ memory card compared to FAT32.


Why Not To Choose NTFS:

1. Some devices such as mp3 player can't detect storage/ pendrive/ memory card formatted in NTFS format.

Why Choose FAT32:

1. More devices can read storage/ pendrive/ memory card formatted in FAT32 format.

Why Not To Choose FAT32:

1. Less files can be stored in the FAT32 formatted storage/ pen drive/ memory card.

2. Single file larger than 4GB cannot be copied into FAT32 formatted storage/ pen drive/ memory card.


Conclusion:

If your device such as mp3 player can read storage/ pen drive/ memory card formatted in NTFS format (which most of the device nowadays are able to), choose NTFS. If can't, then you have no choice but to choose FAT32 format for your storage/ pen drive/ memory card.
