by with it just fine.

What you are missing is that FAT is quite unreliable compared to proper filesystems like NTFS or Linux ext2/3. I've had corrupted filesystems on large cards several times after a lot of deletions between shots (Linux kernel log: "access beyond end of device").

I really wished manufacturers would use ext2 but since Windows intentionally has no support for it, that's not going to happen.
