Re: Sansa Clip+ and SD card format

xFat is a completely different format from FAT32 and won't work in Rockbox.

As Windows won't format anything greater than 32gb as FAT32, you need to use a utility such as fat32format. Search for it using Google.

got the message that 64GB is too large for FAT32.

thought I'd try it again, only doing a quick format, and that
worked.

>>Hi,
>>I had tried to format my 64GB SD
  card on my Windows 7 computer as xFat, and it kept failing.
>>I even tried it at the
  command-line.
>>So I'm in the process of formatting
  it FAT32 in the command line.
>>It is taking hours, and it is
  mostly done, but my question is,
>>Will the FAT32 work on the Sansa
  Clip+?
>>Thanks.
