Hi all, I have just purchased a new Sandisk Ultra 64GB micro SDXC card but when inserting in my 101XS then going to "settings--storage" under SD CARD it shows "Mount USB Storage" touching this gives the message "SD card safe to remove". the card is formatted to exFAT and shows as working perfectly well in my PC or Android phone, according to Archos and Sandisk the card is definitely compatible.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
best wishes, Steve.

exfat is likely not supported yet - try fat32, ext3 or ntfs - these have all been supported in previous itterations of Archos devices

Ext4 also works on my Archos 80.

Same problem here - just formatting card in NTFS - a bit annoying as I stupidly got halfway through my 60GB of music transfer before I thought of checking it!

Bear in mind Read only access to ntfs

Also, google "exfat" "sdxc""micro sd" "64gb" "android". There's various solutions on blogs and android forums for getting 64gb exfat micro sd cards working. I can confirm that once done, Class 10 64gb micro sdxc card is working without any issues.

Sometimes reading this stuff can be like reading another language. i have gathered that I want to format my 64gb sandisk microSD to ext4 for my archos 80 g9.

Can someone please confirm this?

I would really appreciate some kind soul telling me where one might find a link to carry out this task. preferably a site that is easy to follow and uses lots of layman's terms.

Thanks in advance.

I found useful
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthr ... p=33618128

Fat32 is what I went with, rather than ext2. I'm assuming you use Windows rather than linux/OS X. Fat32 should suffice if you're not planning on transferring massive files?

Please update if the guide works in case others run into the same problem. Cheers

Edit: Just noticed you have a g9. This is the g10 forum so you might want to double check if the linked fat32 instructions apply for your tab

Fat32 only supports files up to 4gb, and in the case of avi files, only supports 2gb - it isn't really a suitable file system for a HD media device where even mediocre bluray rips will exceed 2-3 gb

It's easy when you know how.

I re-formatted to NTFS and it the card is being read without any problems.

Thanks again.
