Default 4 Gig Microdrives & DigiCams that doesn´t support FAT 32

I read the microdrive page infos on Steves. I would like to rip the 4GB HITACHI MICRODRIVE off the MuVo2 & wonder now if my Olympus C5050
a) is able to read/use the card at all
b) read the card but can use USE 2 GB on it only
c) or is just not compatible with the 4Gig stuff
The C5050 is listed to be microdrive compatible, but does not support the FAT technology.
Who kows & can tell? Steve??

Not 100% sure but I think you could use it, at least a portion of it anyway. It would have to be formatted with FAT-16 which means that you would only "see" half of the drive's capacity = 2GB.
