64GB Micro-SD card works for Samsung 7.7 Tab
I don't know know if you guys already know this, but after much frustration, I was finally able to figure out how to make a new Sandisk Ultra 64GB micro-SD card work for this tablet.
I found this great post from this site on how to do this - See Post #5 which is copied below. You need to install the free version of an app called "EaseUs Partition Master Home Edition" which allows you to format the memory card to FAT32. By the way, this app is slightly non-intuitive, after you click on the drive to format and press okay, you need to press the X button at top right of app as if you're exiting the program, which will then prompt you to start the process of formatting to FAT 32 and you choose yes. IMPORTANT: After finish formatting card, and inserting into the tablet, you need to RESTART the tablet in order for tablet to recognize the card. I now have 64GB of external memory storage (actually it's approx 59GB of usable external memory)!!

64gb microSD cards - The Galaxy Tab Forum
Bought a genuine Sandisk 64GB Ultro MicroSD card which includes a SD card adapter.
Went online to find methods to format the microsd card as Galaxy Tab 7 Plus won't recognize it when I put it in the card slot.
Don't use Windows to format the card since it won't work because Windows won't format the card if it's over 32Gb which is the Windows limitation.
I waited over 2 hours for the card to be formatted before Windows put up an error message that it couldn't format the card due to the size restriction!!
Couldn't Windows have put up that message Before the formatting began since it IS a known Windows restriction?!
I had to reformat the microsd card back to ExFat32 since the Windows formatting wiped out the previous file structure!
Luckily, I found and used "EaseUs Partition Master Home Edition" :- http://www.partition...om/personal.htm , which is free!
It's very similar to Windows' Computer Management Disk Management function.
Put the card adapter with microsd chip into the SD card slot of your computer...
Open the program...
Select the drive for that specific card...
In less than 30 seconds... it's done.
Goto WinExplorer and check the format of the card...
It should read FAT32.
My GT7+ now recognizes the microsd card with ~58Gb.
Since this is my first Android device, I'm still learning on how to Manually structure the folder directory of the MicroSD card (i.e. create folders... music, media, playlists, photos, etc...) as I've yet to learn how to use Samsung's Kies program.
