Default [Metropcs] 64gb Sandisk microSDXC Class 10 not mounting

Hi everyone,

I purchased a 64gb SanDisk Ultra 64 GB microSDXC Class 10 on Amazon and It is not mounting to my phone. I believe the phone does recognize it, but when i try to mount it, it does not mount. Any tips?

Did you format it before installing it?

Before using my 64GB Sandisk microSDXC I had to quick format it on my PC before it was recognized by my GSIII (TMo). I did a quick format using exFAT with default allocation size. GSIII are known to support exFAT unlike many other android devices.

This is what I used to format my 64gb card into FAT32 format:
Ridgecrop Consultants Ltd

Go to the middle area where it says "Now download a copy of fat32format" and follow the steps.

how did you quick format it on your computer? I have my 64gb connected to my S3 and all it says is "SD card is safe to remove." I would like to format it on my computer but I can not. When I connect the S3 to the computer it only shows internal memory.

In my case, I was having issues with exFAT. Ever since I formatted to FAT32, no problems.

Not sure if GSIII for Sprint is that much different from mine, but I was able to use exFAT once I reformatted with default allocation size using Win 7. Before reformatting the card was not recognized by my device. I like the ability to store >4 GB files.
