Hi Brian, well, I was more thinking in terms of Swiss Emmental Cheese:
Too much bubbles !? ;-D

That's another curious thing/question:
Suggested is formatting with FAT32 with its 32GB limit if I am not
mistaken !?

On the other hand: I would appreciate to understand more in the
following terms:
MUST it be FAT32 and why FAT32 (only) !?
I would tend more to ext3 if mainly used with Linux / Ubuntu !

Thanks for your feedback and thoughts.
Cheers, svobi
