in FAT32 so you can access to it on any OS (Windows, Linux or OSX).

Edit the file __wpa_supplicant.conf__  using and ASCII editor like Nodepad, Nodepad++, Wrangler, gedit, etc.

    ssid="<font color='red'>your access point name</font>"
    psk="<font color='red'>password</font>"

    proto=WPA RSN
