HP 50g & SD Cards: Performance, Format, Notes

RE: HP 50g & SD Cards: Performance, Format, Notes
Regarding my previous post (please read it if you haven't already), I tried deleting the hidden files using my 5K iMac today, using the following command in the Terminal, followed by quickly ejecting the SD card:

dot_clean /Volumes/256MB_FAT16

Sadly, it doesn't work. I guess this Mac is so fast it restores the hidden files right after I delete them.

So I then tracked down a Windows8 PC with SD card slot and formatted it FAT16, with a 16k Allocation Block Size. I then put the card back in the 50g and used File Manager to view its contents. I still see a single directory on it named "SYSTEM~1". When I try to "VIEW" that directory on the 50g, I get the following Error:


I cannot PURGE that directory either.

And when I try to "FORMA" the card in File Manager, I get the same error again"


All of these tests I speak of in this post pertain to my 256MB SD Card that has only the single partition (i.e., it's not partitioned).

How do I solve this problem?
