Default SD card and massive thumbnail file issue

I have 2 issues

1. I have a 64GB microSD card which is formated with exFAT. It works fine in the phone but it is not detected in the recovery. Recovery says failed to mount sdcard

2. There is massive thumbnail file in the Internat SD of about 3GB. Is this behaviour normal?

I am currently using ultimate rom 5.0 which uses Jellybean 4.1.2 XLSA
with Philz kernel and his recovery.

Please throw some light how i can fix these issue.

Thanks

Use FAT32 if you do not have any 4GB+ files.
Format the entire disk (switching to fat32 will do that anyway...)
If thumbnail still comes up, try deleting the pic for which that thumbnail is there.

I had the same issue with thumbnails. Go to settings / accounts and sync. Search for google account, tap on that and disable sync picasa and sync photos.Then go to folder and delete thumbnails.
Have fun.

Formated the card now the speeds are too slow. Is not there a way to make ntfs or exFAT support?
