    Yes, I have this card and I was able to get it to work, but you HAVE to format it on your computer to fat32 in order for the card to mount.

    First, I put the card fresh out of the package into the Note 10.1 and it said "preparing the SD card", but it never actually mounted the card, thus I couldn't format it properly in the device. I have this same card in my Galaxy S3 and all I had to do was put it into the phone and it worked immediately ... of course I went ahead and reformatted the card using the phone because it's always best to format it in the device. Anyway, I put the new card into my phone and formatted it with the phone and then tried it in the Note 10.1. By default, the Samsung S3 formats it to exfat. Again, the Note 10.1 didn't mount the card. I even called SamsungTech Support and we repeated everything, even resetting the device. Finally I read off all details of the card and the tech told me that the tablet cannot use a 64GB card - that when they say up to 64GB, they mean the TOTAL storage (internal + external) is 64GB, so I figured I was out of luck and would now have a 64GB card that I couldn't use.

    I decided to look around the web again - I couldn't have been the only one that thought that it would take a 64GB card. I finally found the answer: I formatted it to fat32 on my PC (Win7-64) using the fat32 program that I downloaded here: http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/guiformat.exe

    It formatted quickly and when I put it in the Note 10.1, it mounted and read the correct memory size. So yes, this 64GB card does seem to work. I have not yet confirmed that it will actually hold the full capacity of the card - it will take a while to copy that much data to the card to test it, but it does appear to be OK at this point.

    BTW, the card is now listed on Amazon for $49 when supplied by Amazon (you have to check the additional listings on the card to get the one direct from Amazon), but it looks like it may be backordered.

    I formated the card in my old phone (running Gingerbread). Once I did that the Note 10.1 recognized the 64GB card.
    this is what I did. Formatted in my old HTC EVO 3D, slapped the card into my tab 2.0 7"and worked perfectly. I just picked up the note 10.1 today and will be talking this 7" tab back.

    Let me get this straight. Format the 64 GB card in my GS3 or the Note 10.1?

    Unless today's Note 10.1 update fixed the formatting ( I have not tested it today) - then you will need a Gingerbread device (or PC) to properly format the 64 GB SDXC.

    I got my Note 10.1 on the 23rd, and I never had an update. I have searched for updates a handful of times on various wi-fi networks and it always says there isn't one available. So I don't know if they were already updated, or if it just hasn't been pushed to me yet.

    If you have a device (phone or tablet) with Gingerbread - that will work too.
    Before the update came out that is what I did. Then after the update I re-formatted it again just to prove that it could.

    When you install the micro SD card, with the screenside up, which way do the contacts face?

    The contacts of the sd card should face the guts of your fone.

    I was not able to format my 64 GB sdxc card in my pc. I have the US version of the Note 10.1 32 GB tablet. Can I use the one in my GS3 or I'd there another way to format it so that it works?

    Have you tried putting your new 64 gig in your GS3 to format it, then move it over to the Note?

    My 64 gig is out for delivery and my Note has the OS software from before last week's OTA, so I don't expect my Note to be able to format the 64 gig. I'm going to try it, but then my next resort will be to put it in my Rezound and format it there. My Rezound formatted and works just fine with the 64 that I already have in it....

    Windows will not natively format the fat32 past 32gig. You have to go out and download one of the many free apps out there that allow it. I did it for my Xoom and when I got my Note 10.1 I pulled the card from the xoom and put it in and it read immediately with all the movie and music files still in tact. Reads full 64 gig.

    I have formatted in my old Captivate running Gingerbread and in my updated Note 10.1 and I can always read the the card in the Note 10.1.

    Again there are likely some third part Windows apps that will format the 64 GB as exFAT.

    The correct format is exFAT as formatted in the Note 10.1.
