I formatted it to fat32 and it still doesn't work. I tried it on different roms and no luck.

I've got several 64GB SanDisk Ultra and I get full capacity. I don't format them on Windows though.

What do you suggest then? I have a windows computer. I tried to format it through the phone but it doesn't recognize it. I'm running DJ's cm10.2 rom.

Personally, I know partitioning with eollie's oneclick works. It's the first one in the second post of my oneclick thread. Also check out lumin30's oneclick guide.

Reboot to recovery, nandroid backup (using an SD card that works) . Put device in download mode and oneclick. Put the SD card in, partition.

At this point I hope you report back

Flash your rom's zip so it's the same version as you backed up with. Same recovery. Nandroid restore your backup.

Worth a shot.

You can also download Ubuntu and run it off a USB stick, without modifying your Windows install.

Ok I'm trying out the method of running ubuntu from USB which I did. I inserted the card and of course it gave me an exfat error. I go to format and there are fat, ntfs, ext4 and luks + ext4. I don't see fat32 so which one do I choose?

Well it doesn't matter what I choose it doesn't seem to format the card at all. Do I have to install the whole ubuntu to get all the capabilities? I chose trying out ubuntu option.

It should work with the "Try Ubuntu" option. Once you launch gnome-disks you should get a window labeled "Disks" with "Devices" in the left column. Select the microSD from there. From the gear in the top right, select "Format"

In the format dialog, you should select "Compatible with all systems and devices (MBR/DOS)" and "quick format" is fine.

Once the new partition table is written from that step, you need to add a FAT / VFAT / FAT32 partition to the disk. As I recall there is either a "+" symbol beneath the "bar graph" under the Volumes label, or there should be one off the gears beneath the bar graph.

If you're still having problems, I'll try to take some screen shots when I get home.

Once you have gnome-disks running, select the proper drive. From the top-right gear, select "Format..."



Unless you know why you would want something different, you should select "MBR/DOS" (partition table type)



If confident you have the right disk, go ahead.



and you should end up with a disk with an MBR partition table and no partitions



Next, add the partitions you need. Select the free space and click the "+" beneath the map of the partitions



I am setting this one up for Hefe Hook and external data, with a partition for sd-ext and a spare, so I only allocate 54 GB to the FAT partition. If you only need a FAT partition, you can just let it use the entire disk.



After created, you should see it in the partition map. If you used the whole disk, you won't see the "Free Space" section.



If you're adding more partitions, for sd-ext, or other reasons, select the "Free Space" section, then click the "+" again.



Here I'm adding an ext4 partition for "app-to-SD" scripts and other legacy purposes.



Here is the four-partition disk that I am using today.







If you have problems like it not allowing you to convert from GUID to MBR partitioning, the following will wipe the beginning of the disk and generally let you start with partitioning. Insert the right drive letter in place of the # below

Make sure that you select the right drive, as you can wipe your system or any other disk you have with this!

Code:
sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sd# bs=4k count=1k
