Formatting SD card on linux

Hi,

I use a 4 GB HDSD card. Obviously the DR cannot format the card, but if I format the card using my camera, then the DR reads it perfectly fine. However, if I format the card using my laptop (running linux), either using mkdosfs or gparted, the DR does not read the card.

Since formatting by the camera works, I don't have a problem. But I am just curious how to other people on linux format their cards. I am using

Code:
sudo mkdosfs -F 16 /dev/mmcblk0
or formatting using gparted and selecting a fat16 partition.

I believe it has to be FAT32, doesn't it?
