Fat32 should be fine. Or else plug in the card in your mobile. Then there is some option like memory card in your mobile and format from there.

ok so suddenly the Kingston card started working yesterday but today again its not getting detected.I bought sandisk one and its working fine. So either this Kingston card is not supported on my cell properly I guess or maybe there is some problem with the card.hmm.. so what u guys suggest to do with this kingston card ask for a replacement for a new card or try to get sandisk card in its place ?

What's the data read rate of the card you bought?

Older models like N73 might not support cards that read at speeds higher than 2-4Mbps. Also called its class.

The data transfer rate is generally indicated as a number in a C.
