5.0 out of 5 stars 64GB on a 32GB Max device!!, 30 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SanDisk 64GB Mobile Ultra MicroSDXC Memory Card with SD Adapter (Personal Computers)
Bought this tiny beast for my Samsung Galaxy S 5.0 media player which reportedly only supports upto 32GB cards, so in short I downloaded verbatim FAT32 tool from verbatim's website (Free Download) and thoroughly formatted the card to FAT32 (the same file system as 32GB cards) now my small tablet has 59.4GB on the card and has so far worked flawlessly, as far as speed is concerned it does perform well enough for any android app to run off it and besides who cares if you have to wait a little longer for file transfers when you can carry 60GB around with you, oh and yes it's fast enough for HD movies and high megapixel shots.

One word of advice:
- I first formatted the card using the Samsung tablet and it worked but kept crashing during file transfers, After formatting using Verbatim's Free FAT32 Tool it works very well indeed.

Thanks for your review. What I don't understand (and I am no IT person) is why would a 64GB card "only" deliver 59GB of actual usable space. I could understand getting 64 or 63GBs but to be missing 6 full GBs seems excessive.
Is this normal?

It's the difference between using 1,000 (10^3) and 1,024 (2^10) to represent 1K. A gigabyte is a either 1,000^2 or 1,024^2, depending on whether you're the operating system (Android, Windows) or the drive manufacturer. Manufacturers prefer 1,000 because it makes the space seem larger, and the operating systems prefer 1,024 because it's binary. Unfortunately, it also means 64G is really 61G. (I suspect the other missing 2G is for formatting overhead.)

P.S. Thanks to the OP because I was considering this card for my Samsung Galaxy player 5.0.
