    SanDisk 64GB micro SDXC card not recognized by Xoom

    I was in Best Buy yesterday to pickup the new Motorola S11 headphones when I saw that they had the 64GB cards in stock, so I picked up a few.

    After researching things, I formatted the cards in my Galaxy S III and began the process of copying everything from my 32GB cards to the 64GB ones. Long story short, the card works fine in the Galaxy S III, but the other one isn't seen by the Xoom at all, in storage it just says mount SD card, and of course, it doesn't mount.

    Funny thing is this: it shows up on my Windows 8 laptop, even shows the correct capacity. As an aside, I learned last night that Windows 8 is capable of formatting SDXC cards in the proper capacity.

    Any ideas? My Xoom is the Verizon variant (MZ602) running stock 4.0.4.

    I take it you formatted both in your sgs3, not sure about stock but custom recoveries will let you mount from there.

    Yes, I did format all three from the S III. However, after that didn't work, and seeing as Windows 8 can successfully format SDXC in the proper capacity, I tried it that way as well. All formatted versions, whether on the PC or in the S III itself were recognized by the S III, but not on the Xoom. I'm thinking that this may be a limitation of the stock ICS I have on the Xoom, but I really don't know for sure.

    The original OG Xoom had sd card issues when released but there was a "kind of fix" for it by the time it hit 4.0 if I remember correctly so as your on a later model it should be a mute point, has it read other sd cards previously?

    Well, my Xoom has v4.0.4, so it would indeed appear to be moot, but I can't help but wonder if the issue is related to this older version of Android.

    Ah, I didn't know that! Why is that, and how much space would I be giving up if I format as FAT 32?

    the xoom was never meant to use sdxc only up to a 32GB sdhc. to get it to see a sdxc you have to format the card to fat32.

    as for how much you lose in format, dunno

    Just answered my own question; not much, really, about 1.5GB.

    Formatted and copying files now; I'll report back in a couple of hours.

    Well, it's all good now. Formatted the card as FAT 32 and the Xoom recognizes it now, so problem solved.

    Thanks for the help, everyone!
