    Before I got rid of my Xoom it was running a 64Gb card with no problems. The only problem is formatting it to work in the Xoom, windows won't format a card of larger than 32Gb. Your best bet would be to format it in an android phone if you have access to one.

    2Tware has a utility called Fat32format that will allow you to format the 64GB card to FAT 32.

    Volume label is optional but will show up in file explorer when you plug the card into your computer. Use default for allocation unit size.

    You need a hirens bootcd it will format your SD card and more, it's an excellent CD to have on hand, it even has a mini XP to back door your system if need be (if you don't have a dual boot).

    I remember when this was only found on hack sites, now it's apparently legit having no pirated software. Download Hiren?s BootCD 15.2 | HBCD Fan & Discussion Platform

    I notice it has Opera 12.02, you can't find that anymore, they keep wanting to upgrade mine but I won't let it, past 12 is just Chrome with no bookmarks.

    And 64 Gigs, didn't think the Xoom would handle it, I'll have to check that out myself.
