What format for SD cards?

I've seen advice for formatting the SD cards for the EZ reader devices in FAT16 [https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=56482] but when I try to format a big SD card, Windows wants it formatted in FAT32 due to the size.

Am I right in thinking that a firmware update should be done with a smaller card formatted in FAT16 but if you put the book library on a larger card it should be formatted in FAT32?

The download page says:

Your SD card must be 4GB or smaller (for the 6” EZ Reader) or 16GB or smaller (for the 5”PocketPRO) to do this.
So, if you have a Pocket Pro, FAT32 is ok (it is requried for SDHC and > 4GB) even for firmware updates.

I am using a 1GB FAT16 card, so I have not tested this myself.
