Default [Q] NTFS format on my MicroSD

Just bought a new 32GB MicroSD HC card for my streak.... tried formatting it NTFS so I can transfer large files when I need to.... but it didnt work after I transferred my files from my old card...


I formatted FAT32 and tried again and it worked fine.

Is this common? I'm using the newest DSC ROM. Should I be able to have it formatted NTFS and have it work?

Thanks

Android supports ext2/3/4, vfat (fat16/32) and reiserfs, no ntfs

I'm pretty sure we enabled NTFS with read/write support in latest Phoenix kernel.
Will check config tomorrow.

FYI, im no pro... I just flashed using the instructions given in the first posting in the DSC thread on the development forums...

So if I need to do something extra please let me know... Thanks for your help.

Oh it had NTFS added in? As OP didnt say which rom/kernel he was on I just assumed. The stock kerns dont support it and I dont run anything but stock kerns.

Would you test this kernel?
It has NTFS support for sure, dunno if other restrictions may apply.

Doesn't work. My kernel is 2.6.35.14-DSC-Team-Pheonix+ in the about area...

But I get a notification saying : "SD Card Blank or has unsupported file system"

Most probably Android applies restrictions on higher level.
NTFS support is built in kernel, and I plan to check it when I receive otg cable.

@TheManii... I'm just curious as to why you only run stock kernel?
