    Default 64GB Micro SD Card?

    Has anyone been able to get a 64GB micro SD card to work in the Note? I love the size of this phone and am considering it when I am up for renewal. Thanks.

    Yes, works fine.

    I have the SanDisk 64GB Ultra

    Make sure you format it in the phone.

    How do you format it on the phone? I'm considering picking up a 64 GB card though 32 might be enough for now.

    I have a Samsung 32GB Class 10 card installed with no problems.

    I wasn't aware that a 64GB card was supported.

    I know that you were looking for a 64GB card but I got the Micro Center news paper ad in the mail today and I found a Samsung 32GB class ten micro SD card for $39.99. You can't go wrong with that. I live in Houston don't know if there is a Micro Center anywhere near you but I looked on their website and they have it there too. I'm sure you could buy it and have it shipped. The link is below.

    The only difference between the 32 GB and 64 GB cards (SDHC vs SDXC cards) is the file system it's formatted with. SDXC cards come with microsoft's exFAT file system on it by default, this is why you need to reformat it, so that it formats it to FAT32 (the default system used by SDHC).

    This is why, technically, the SDXC cards are said by manufacturers that they aren't compatible, but you can easily make them compatible by reformatting it.

    Oh baby, I'd love to stick one of these up a Galaxy S3's tail pipe!



    Hello 60mbps 1080p video?

    Actually at that rate I'd be pumping out ~8MB/sec for just video alone. Audio doesn't add a lot, even at a higher bitrate of 192kbps, but at 8MB/sec it will fill that SDCard in aboooout oh not bad 4 hours and 9 minutes. Hey that's pretty good actually lol now the real question, can a phone even accept one of those beasts formatted with FAT32

    Fat32 supports up to 2TB in size, so I don't see why not.

    However, the card you linked is a full size SD card, i think, not a micro, which obviously won't work

    Just remember that the cards themselves maybe compatible, but the FAT32 File System itself will not recognize nor use individual file sizes larger than 4GB. So while it may sound great that you could take a 4 Hour full HD Video, the problem is that you will have to transfer it to a PC to actually view it afterwards as the device will not be able to use it.

    Just something to keep in mind when going with such a large storage device. I already ordered my 32GB MicroSD Cards that I am going to use with my Note. For even heavy users, that should be enough storage space. Unless you put your whole music collection on there.

    Your whole music collection on there?????

    30 GB????

    Have they even made that many songs through out the history of mankind? LOL

    I can not even think of that many songs. Most storage i have used is just under
    1.7GB on a USB thumb drive and about 1 GB was just the sound track from
    (O brother where art thou) downloaded in 24bit/192khz from HDTracks.

    Course the other 100 or so songs were crappy MP3 quality which don't eat
    up a lot of space anyway.

    Now the rest of the space i need for my hippo porn

    lol They have easily made that much. Several years ago when MP3's were in there hey day i remember someone that had a server at home and had 79 gigs of music from all kinds of sources.

    I just got my Sandisk 64GB MicroSDXC card and worked like a charm. I put it in, the phone asked to format it and yea i have the extra capacity.

    Just a brief update. I like the SDXC card but i can't find anyway to format it to break the 4GB file limit. The phone formats it to Fat32, and only that. I tried formating it to different file systems on my desktop (ext2,3, and 4, and evFat in windows) and they always needed to be reformated once in the phone. Kind of stinks. If anyone has a better understanding as to what File systems may work let me know.

    Even with that limit it is hard to actually let that create an issue. most of the content is smaller then 4GB so no biggie.

    This is because on Android it has to be in Fat32 file format and its a physical limit of Fat32 that files cannot be larger than 4Gb.

    But FAT32 limits file size to 4GB. I have movies that's more than 4GB and in Windows can't copy the file to my 32GB card.

    Android doesn't require FAT32. The internal file systems on your device are most likely some ext2-4 variant. The reason FAT32 is prefered is to allow connectivity as a external storage device. This is actually discussed if you look up exFAT(i think that is it). Basically FAT32 is pretty much open source but the newer exFAT that doesn't have the 4GB limit is a liscened format that is from MS. So most likely it will never see the light of day on external devices running any other OS.
