Up to 32Gb, is it the number you are looking for ?

Re: micro SD card

Hello Peternik12,

 

No, Banhien is correct - 32 gig is the maximum.

Re: micro SD card

I hate how manufacturers do this. HTC did the same thing with my EVO 4g LTE. They claim that is only supports up the 32gb and then someone has to be a guinea pig and try it with a 64gb card. I just put my 64gb SDXC Micro SD card fromatted as a FAT32 system (therefore not allowing you to put a file over 4gb on it) and it works just fine. Here is a pitcure for proof. You cannot simply put an SDXC card in and let it work out of the box. You have to reformat it as a Fat32 system. I can explain further if you would like as it really isn't a hard process. 

 

But there is a way to get 64gb micro sd's to work on the Slate 7.

Hi,

 

I hate this too, I've posted few times: we paid nearly 1 million dollars for 4 MDS9000 directors and none of them can read a card greater than 2Gb.

Re: micro SD card

Nice work!  I simply confirmed what the specs state.  This is good information to know!

Re: micro SD card

Hi,

 

You can do a 64GB card as indicated above.  Also as indicated must be formatted to FAT32 which limits the FILESIZEs to 4GB e.g. a large video might exceed this size.  So you can put as many files on the card that will fit up to the formatted size of the card e.g. 59 GB.  To format the card on your computer find the HP USB formatter tool.  The filename is HPUSBDisk.exe and the one I have is 96 KB.  The one I have is titled HP USB DIsk Storage Format Tool, V2.2.3.   No, I don't recall where I got it, I Googled for it.  Literally just formatted a PATRIOT 64GB and stuck it in my Slate 7 and it sees it with 59.00GB available.
