    How to I format the card so I can put files over 4g on it? I put it in the adapater and formatted it to NTFS in my PC plugged it back in and phone and had to reformat it to use once in and it reformatted back to FAT?

    Thanks for the help.

    There's a more thorough discussion about this on XDA. Apparently, it's a known "issue" with the Class 10 Sandisk 64gb micro sdxc. From what I understand, it can't be formatted to NTFS.

    The rest of the talk honestly went way over my head, and I haven't had any problems using my 64 class 10, but you may want to track down that thread to see what was being explained. Hopefully, you'd be able to shed some light on what the problems/issues/differences are with the different formatting.

    Gah that would suck. I was looking to dump some 720p movies on it that are bigger then 4g. Main reason I got it.

    My understanding was that you could format to exFAT and be able to drop over 4gb into the card and have it work in the note 2.

    You could always use something like handbrake to convert it down a smidge and get it under 4gb. I had to do that recently for my bluray rip of inception. I converted it all the way down to 2 gb. Quality is still excellent on a screen this size. Really no need for anything more unless you want to output it over HDMI to something bigger.

    Just kind of lazy I have dumped several things under 4g's on the phone itself and had no issue with the mkv files.

    Don't really want to get into converting them.

    Of course XDA went down for maintenance as I started reading the links for a few hours ha.

    Can you do this without rooting your phone? Was a bit hard to follow at first I have the app on my phone, says I need to root it to run it, can you just do it outside in your PC then put it back in after formatted?
