Default No 64GB Ext SD after MK3 upgrade

I've searched for many hours and read many threads, but can't find anything on how to fix this.

I upgraded to MK3 following Cnexus instructions in this thread. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2538543
Everything appears to be working fine, but the S3 no longer recognizes the External SD card (64GB) after the upgraded,,. It can be read by my PC, and the S3 will mount/read smaller SD cards (I do not have a 32GB, but it mounts 16GB, 4GB and 32MB SD cards just fine).

My CWR recovery will not read external SD either.. and not sure if I should apply the img in the following thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2391616

Internal SD is working fine.. just can't mount the 64GB microSD on my S3.
any help or directional pointers would be great...

thanks..

64GB SD Cards should be formatted to FAT32 for the S3.

Or flash DKP Kernel for ExFat and/or Fat32 64gb support.

Thanks for the reply... but this is not a new 64GB card.. it's been in my S3 and working just fine all of 2013 w thru the MA6, MB1 and MD4 updates.. it's only following Cnexus MK3 upgrade installs that it has stopped working. It won't mount the SD card.. it will hang the S3 when trying to, and eventually ends with a "safe to unmount SD card" notification.
I bought a new 64GB card and it gives the IDENTICAL behavior.. so I don't think it's the card format..
This is on Cnexus Sprint stock rooted MK3 4.3 ROM...
I've always stayed stock, but rooted.

Both cards are exFat format.. I can't format the new card in the S3 because it can't be mounted. So did we lose exFat support in Cnexus stock MK3 ROM or ?? 'cus I definitely had it in the other releases..

I can't ask him directly.. not able to post in dev forums...

UPDATE: googling found this.. http://forums.androidcentral.com/spr...-wifi-fix.html
It appears to be related to the wifi fix, but I'm not sure I want to install a custom kernel.. thoughts?

sorry.. bit of a noob on the phone side, but WHICH dkp kernel http://d-h.st/users/decimalman/?fld_id=19563#files should I be loading up and does one do that in the same manner as a normal flash (install on S3, boot to recovery, apply, etc) or is it Odin or ADB ?

I'm on cnexus stock MK3 ROM, so I assume that is touchwiz based?

Yes, you want to flash the TW 4.3 kernel. You flash in recovery. After rebooting your phone will see your extSD again.

The one you want is in the link below. You can place the zip file on the root of your SD Card. Boot into Recovery, wipe caches, and flash.

EDIT :
Edited to avoid issues in the future for members. Instead go directly to decimalman's Kernel Thread. That way you will be assured to have the latest version .

Thanks... With all due respect.. I did read that thread (it's 95 pages long in Chrome) tho' not every last word of it as it went all over the place..and I did do searches within the thread.. I also googled VERY MUCH, but having the issue and knowing what to do to fix it are different (the info indicated a problem with exFat, but no fix in that thread with stock kernel, and I'm reluctant to install custom kernels due to my lack of knowledge in the xda arena), however, the suggested fix to install the new kernel DID work (Thanks decimalman)..

While I root, I don't mess with custom rom's much and stay as stock as possible.
I need a working phone, and can't afford to brick it.

UPDATE: For those relative noobs (like me) one needs to do the following to get your 64GB exFat SD card working....
Follow the steps in this thread - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...=mount+sd+card
Then install this version of Decimlman's kernel - http://d-h.st/Dqe
