    SD Card - Do I need to format it

    Do I need to format the SD card that came with N1? When I plug it into the USB I am not able to set up folders; the properties of the removable disk shows it fully free but 0GB available indicating it may not be formatted.
    Also, is this where the camera stores photos?
    thanks

    Answered my own Question - Here's a Tip

    Just realized I was plugging the USB to the PC via a USB extension......that is not good.....for some reason the USB plug needs to go directly to the PC....when it does and you mount the SD card, the files show up nicely on the PC....card is formatted.......I am a dummy........hope this helps someone else......USB direct to PC, no extension cords......
