I just received my brand new SanDisk microSD XC 64Gb.
Took some time to copy all data from my previous 32Gb microSD.

I ejected the 32Gb and replaced it by the 64Gb ... Glide wasn't able to detect the card ... at all !

On windows, file system info is : extFAT (not FAT32).

I read somewhere that most of the latest phones are compatible with this new 64Gb card.

Does this mean that current Glide ROM doesn't have the extFAT drivers embeded ?

I'll try later this 64Gb memory card on a HTC doubleshot (MT4GS).
So, more to come !


Edit : it works .... microSD 64GB needs to be formated with the device (Glide) !

You probably already know this but, the manual states that it supports up to 32GB Micro SDHC only.

Yes, I do know this.

But it has been reported that latest HTC and Samsung devices (Galaxy S II) can read/write this type of microSD card, even if user manual states that device supports only 32GB SDHC.

So I was wondering... why not our device...

I remember seeing that if you format the card on the phone first it should work and recognize all 60ish GBs. This was on a SGS2 though.



Edit: Here is the video where I saw this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yYUg14u_co8

Do you actually get the 30MB/Sec transfer speed the Micro XD card supports on the Glide? Just wondering as it normally does not support that card so are you reaping the full benefits in size and speed?

Size: My previous 32GB was full. I copied all that stuff on the new 64GB and added a few more (large) files. So it does the trick, for now.

Speed : I used SD Tools and it gave these results:
Writing speed : 7.1 MB/s
Reading speed: 18.9 MB/s (with a peak at more than 23MB/s)

This is no 30MB/s but it works great.
