Default Anyone tried using a 64GB USB flash drive with moto x?

I recently acquired a 64GB USB flash drive (Kingston USB 2.0 Data Traveler micro). The drive originally came formatted in FAT32. It worked fine on my 2013 Nexus 7 (stock rooted) with Chainfire's Stickmount app, but not on my Verizon DE moto x (stock rooted). Basically, the x won't recognize that a drive is attached at all and it won't mount. I tried reformatting the flash drive in NTFS and exFAT, but still wouldn't work moto x. I have a 2GB flash drive that works just fine on the moto x in FAT, FAT32, and NTFS, so I know the moto x will read drives in those formats.

I was wondering if the problems I'm having with the 64GB drive on the moto x have to do with the storage size or if it's something else with this particular brand/model flash drive. Before I buy another 64GB drive I was wondering if anyone else has had similar problems or successes in getting a 64GB flash drive to work with the moto x.

Since nobody has answered you and I've been searching for answers, the Sandisk 64GB Dual USB drive I just picked up works on my Moto X running 4.4.2. Paragon NTFS&HFS+ is necessary because my card is still exFat. Stickmount isn't necessary with 4.4.2 but it is with 4.4. The only issue I have is trying to figure out how to have the USB drive show up as an external drive instead of a virtual folder within the internal sd card.
