    hey all,

    I got just the basic xc 1 class 10 sandisk 64GB ULTRA and the app won't let me format it for some reason. I get the format failed message in the app. But I decided to go ahead and use it for video anyways and the video I took with it recorded just fine on the SD card. Does anyone have a fix for this before I return it? The format on my PC lets me format it, but only in ex-fat or NTFS...any suggestions? thanks

    64GB must be formated only in exfat, std FAT format limit is 32GB imho

    So will formatting the 64g card using exfat work the same as fat32?
