    Does Android support FAT File system? Can I use a SD card with FAT file system for my Android?

    I want to know if the Android OS supports FAT File system? If No then can you tell me the reason why it doesn’t support? Somehow I feel FAT is the best File System to use so I want to use it for my SD card too. Can you tell me if that is advisable to use my SD card with FAT File system in my Android?

    Hi dere,
    If you have rooted your device then:
    Ntfs Mounter (requires root) claims: Automatically mount and dismount NTFS/FAT/EXT2/EXT3/EXT4 formated USB Sticks, USB HDD, SD Cards NtfsSd (root) claims to be able to mount SD Card using NTFS

    It depends on some additional thoughts such as other devices you want to use your sdcard on. If those include a Windows system, you better stick with NTFS (as Windows is not easily convinced to read EXTFS). If not Windows systems are involved, you're probably better off with one of the EXTFS versions.
