    Hi, I've got an 8gb micro SD and needed to place a 4gb ISO file on to it. I had to format it to NTFS and exFAT but my phone didn't recognise either formats. Can anyone help?

    Welcome to Android Central! Most phones recognize FAT32. When you insert the card into the phone, does it offer to format for you?

    Fat32 works fine. I formatted it to NTFS & exFAT so I could put a 4gb+ file on. But once I did put the file, the card didn't recognise on phone.
    It did offer to format and phone formated the card back to FAT32

    There's no easy way to figure out which devices can recognize exFAT or NTFS. I think Samsung devices are more likely to recognize exFAT, but that's just based on reading a few things on the web.

    I've got a 1st gen Moto G. I mainly need the file to be compatible with Nexus 6 via otg, if not that then use on an iPad..
    I couldn't copy the ISO directly to my SD that's in my phone either
    What if I broke down the whole ISO and pasted in parts?

    You mean like a .RAR file on Windows? I guess the problem is that you'd still have to rejoin the parts together again, and if it's >4 GB, it won't fit on the SD. Unless you want to move it onto Internal Storage.

    I found this very old Droid Splitter app from 2012, so I don't know if it'll work on a current phone.

    I used to Glary Utilities and used the file splitter tool. Managed to move the whole thing on and it combined everything via .exe file.
    Got another problem, I'm just having problems playing the movie and using the movie menu (Used MXPlayer). I can't really select menu options so the movie just plays on from the menu and the player only shows 10 minutes. Used Kodi but that's not played every track that's on the list either and neither could i select from the menu options
