Has anyone tried to use any of the 64gb microSD cards in their Galaxy Tab 7 Plus, or any other Android device ?

Do they work ?

Which brand card ?

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...
Right click...
Format...
Choose FAT32...
Begin...
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. :yahoo:

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! :)

Update...

Already installed all the MS updates to my new computer/laptop.

Found and tried this MS update:
Update for Win7x64 Systems KB976422
http://www.microsoft...ls.aspx?id=7154
An error popup message stated that: The file was not compatible with your system.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

That's Microsoft for you!
