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.
