    Anyone know for sure if our S3 supports 64gb cards or just 32gb I hard that either the at&t or the Verizon supported the 32 but not the 64 for some reason

    64 works but u gotta format it to fat 32 format. and alot of people dont know that win 7 and win 8 don't give options to format it to that format anymore. i used a program called EaseUS Partition Master 9.1.1 Home Edition that should give u the option to format it to fat32 or else your phone wont be able to read/write to it. im sure there are other apps out there to do it with, but thats how i did mine.

    If you want try the below suggestion
    1. connect flash card to system.
    2. go to device manager and select USB from Disk drives option.
    3. Right click it and choose policies tab and set optimize for performance option.
    4. close every thing and open command prompt
    5. use format command: format *flash carddrivename* /FS:FAT32 /Q /X

    I do this all day at work

    Y'all know Linux code I know windows :)

    Thank you everybody. Was going to get a 32 online for 20 bucks but I think I'll look for a 64

    Repartitioning with a FAT32 partition without LBA and formating with 32K allocation sizes fixes the problem also.

    Format MicroSD under windows with FAT32 32K allocation sizes, command line with:

    format X: /fs:fat32 /a:32K
