I Have 16MB SD Card. I want to write data to SD card. i uploaded ReadWrite code to Arduino UNO but
it said: "Initialization Failed". Then I uploaded card info sketch. it said:
Code: [Select]
Initializing SD card...Wiring is correct and a card is present.

Card type: SD1

Volume type is FAT12

Volume size (bytes): 14848000
Volume size (Kbytes): 14500
Volume size (Mbytes): 14

Files found on the card (name, date and size in bytes):

The Problem is that My SD Card Volume type is FAT12 but SD Card Library only supports FAT16 and FAT32 SD Card Volume types.

My Question is that:

Is there any library to control FAT12 SD Card?
How to Change My SD Card Volume type from FAT12 to FAT16 using Windows 7 or Arduino (is it possible to format SD Card using Arduino and Change Volume Type from FAT12 to FAT16)?
Check out My Youtube Channel:


Volume type is FAT12

SD.h does not support FAT12.  The standard format for cards 16 MB and smaller is FAT12.

SdFat has a formatter, the SdFormatter example, which will format a 16 MB card FAT16.

It is also possible to enable FAT12 support with SdFat but FAT12 support has not been well tested.
