    Post maximum card storage sizes

    got the recent update and have a 32 gb msd card. was supposed to have some apps on it but all it had on it was a empty lost.dir folder. so what is the largest size and type of card i can use in tablet and dock at same time and how to make them work.. for some reason i feel like buying a boat load of cards for no reason at all.

    32 GB is fully supported - I've seen forums where people are also using 64 GB and 128 GB cards successfully too - but also quite a few complaining that they don't work. There seem to be some lower-end cards that don't work at all and many of them are dependent on how you format them. I think the format is the reason most manufacturers draw the line at 32 GB - that's the largest size you can use with a FAT format, which is also the most compatible with all operating systems. It also limits the maximum size of a single file to 4 GB.

    If you format to NTFS or exFAT (extended FAT), you can use larger volumes - and with NTFS you can use larger file sizes. I formatted my 32 GB card to NTFS and I have a couple of large 1080p video files that are over 5 GB - no problems with any of these. Some people also use Linux partitions (which Android is built on) but if you don't have a Linux computer, you won't be able to read it in Windows.

    I've been thinking about trying a 64 GB card but they're still very pricey - about $100. There might be some good deals in December...

    I just bought Sandisk Ultra (Class 10) 30MB/second 64gb cards: an SD card for the dock, and the MicroSD card for the tablet. Both worked perfectly without having to do anything whatsoever to them or the devices. Paid around $100 for both of them together through Amazon.

    My Tablet is brand-new, upgraded to JB immediately after purchase.

    I am curious. How did your JB update go? Smoothly and no hitches? I am getting my TF700 on Tuesday 10-16 and plan on doing an immediate update to JB using the downloaded ROM from the ASUS website.
    I plan on copying the META INF folder and the BLOB file to the root directory of a microSDHC card and then doing a reboot of the tablet after inserting the card into the tablet.

    Does anyone have any further suggestions or hints?

    Thanks!

    I see there is a handy program available to format 64GB microSDHC cards with FAT32, which Windows native format tool won't do past 32 GB. It was on a review of a SanDisk card at Newegg.

    Windows users should get the shareware program fat32format.exe (easy google search to find it) since the format tool built into windows wont format a 64gb drive into fat32.
    Here's a link to the download: Download FAT32format 1.05 Free - FAT32format is able to easily format large hard disks in FAT32, even in Windows XP. - Softpedia

    It's a command line driven application, so inexperienced Windows users may have a little difficulty with it.
