Default Fix for slow startup time (and possibly for firmware upgrade issues)

Discussion thread:
Direct download link:

This is what I've been waiting for... a definite answer to the annoying issues about the D2's sluggish startup times - and maybe even the upgrade issues a lot of people experienced with recent firmware versions. It's as simple as NOT using Windows to format SD/SDHC cards, but using this Panasonic formatting app.

On the one side I'm happy about a fix - on the other side it makes me even more angry about Cowon, cause they don't mention these formatting issues anywhere in the manual or on their website. They should put a big red warning sticker on the D2: "Do not format with Windows"... it would have saved me (and many other people) a lot of time and hassle.
