    Has anyone tried to run the Galaxy Note 8 with a 64gb Micro SD card?

    I'm interested in getting one of these to replace an older tablet, but am concerned about the capacity of the SD card.

    BB, Android Central and a few others are saying 64gb, but Samsung's website is saying 32gb.

    64gb is supported just like it is on the note 2. I bought one yesterday for mine.

    Why would I get errors. Even the s3 supports 64gb. Unless you get a bad card all should be good

    I have a 64GB card in mine and working just fine! Samsung made a lot of errors with this release in my opinion. Anyone get their $25 gift card for Play yet, as was advertised?

    No I got my $25 almosy instantly after I registered as did some of the others here. What issues are you referring to on this release because my note 8.0 is fine.

    If you didnt get it yet then make sure you correctly registered by going into account settings on sammys website and checking for devices. Also check your junk mail. Mine went straight to my gmail account.

    Using a SanDisk Ultra 64 GB MicroSDXC card, and everything works as it should. My $25 Google Play credit also worked fine when I registered a few days ago. I used this link to register my Note 8:

    The guy at Best Buy told me that all I can put in mine was a 32 GB. He said that the 64 GB would not be able to be fully accessed because of a hardware limitation on the 16GB Samsung Note 2 8.0. Does that make any sense to you?

    I dunno why the note 2 phone can handle a 64 and the bigger tablet would only support 32. Seems fishy

    I have found that most people at best buy dont know crap about android. Everyone knows about apple stuff and they constantly push that cuz its easier to sell

    Do your own research if you dont believe the users here. Amazon has the 64gb memory card on the cheap and there are hundreds of reviews that all proclaim these to work in samsung devices.

    I have not had any issues - so far though not a good test.

    Has anyone found a way to get google play to download movies to the SD card? Or songs? Can amazon music see the SD card?

    Google Play will play videos off the SD card, but not sure about downloading to it. Amazon will see and play music on the SD card and can read mp3 playlists in .m3u format.

    Hey all,

    I ordered a 64GB micro card and it works just fine. I've saved videos, books, and music (from Amazon) onto it without a problem. I've been very pleased with the performance.

    Thanks for all the help. Much to my surprise my girlfriend got me a 64gb for my birthday. I agree that there have been a ton of mistakes with this launch. GOOD JOB SAMSUNG! (and ive had my note8 for over a week and no peep from samsung or google on the play credit.

    Yup i bought the Note 8 with 3G here in South africa and it seems you only qualify for the Play store $25 if you bought your device in the US, one of the Wifi only versions.

    Were you able to access the full 64 MB. Thats an important question. These cards need address lines to use the memory capacity. For example 1kb needs 10 = 2^10 address lines. 1gb needs 30 and 32 gb needs 35. 64 gb will need 36. If Samsung only planned for 35 address lines your 64 gb card will work but due to absence of 36th line half of 64 gb wont be accessible. If u r confident that 64 gb is supported do u mind copying some thing into your card and make sure 32+ gb are usable? Many people including me are going to buy 64 gb due to your post. Can you please let us know?

    Does anyone know if the 128GB cards will work on the Note 8 when they come out?

    SD cards are accesed serially, not in parallel like CF cards. Limits for SD card access are almost always due to device /OS limits.
