    I bought a genuine Sandisk 64GB Ultra 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 ExFat since the Windows formatting wiped out the previous file structure!

    Luckily, I found and used "EaseUs Partition Master Home Edition" 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...
    Right click...
    Choose FAT32...
    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.

    Good luck!

    Mchan1: If you are using Win 7 you do not need kies. Go to Settings>Apps>Development>USB Debugging: in your SGT7+ and turn it on; turn your Tab off; plug your cable into the Tab and then plug into a USB recepticle on your computer.

    Your computer will download the neccessary drivers, then your Tabs' storage will show on the Computers' "Explorer" screen (Your tab will turn on automatically).You can then manage your Tabs files from within your computer.

    I think I got it all right. If not I am sure others will chime in.

    Hope this helps!!

    For whatever reason, when I first installed the card into the tablet, it wouldn't recognize it.

    After I rebooted it, the tablet then recognized it.

    The same thing happened when I installed other file managers.. at first it wouldn't recognize the external card but after reboot, it did!

    Go figure!

    Now I just have to keep moving any downloaded files manually from the tablet onto the external card as I can't get any apps to download directly onto the external card!
