Looks like NTFS works as well...

Re: 2014 sd card capacity?

Yup, just formatted to NTFS from ExFAT and the card works fine from what i can tell.

Here is what I got:

Lexar Professional
128GB
133x Speed
LSD128CRBNA133

Works fine with NTFS format.

Re: 2014 sd card capacity?

I have a 64GB SD card installed in my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee uConnect 5 system with about 48GB of music on it. No issues at all. Works great.

Re: 2014 sd card capacity?

I've got about 120GB of music. Loading it all from a flash drive took about 75 minutes the first time I put it in before it was all fully indexed. Then I was able to browse, use voice control, etc.

Until I shut off the car. Then it seems to vary. Sometimes, I can have access up to 2 minutes after I start the car. Sometimes it takes an hour. Getting really sick of hearing "I'm sorry, I'm still updating your music catalog."

Anybody else as frustrated with this as I am? Anybody have any theories as to the discrepancies? I'd love to find a way to avoid this, but with great amounts of music, comes great lag, apparently.

Typically if you need the drive for a Windows-only environment, NTFS is the best choice. If you need to exchange files (even occasionally) with a non-Windows system like a Mac or Linux box, then FAT32 will give you less pain.

Which is Faster?
While file transfer speed and maximum throughput is limited by the slowest link (usually the SD drive interface), NTFS formatted hard drives have tested faster on benchmark tests than FAT32 formatted drives. Other factors will be in play, however, including drive technology (HDD vs. SDD, Flash vs. non-Flash, etc.) and file fragmentation (on spinning drives). FOr this application, macht nichts

Correct.

NTFS will work for cards over 32GB. You can use Fat32, but it won't read the full capacity of the card if you do.

I currently have a 64GB card in my Jeep and it works fine.

The only issue is, every time you remove a card and replace it, the system will have to catalog the library again. For a small collection, that will be reasonably quick. For a large collection, it can take several minutes before voice control will work.

Re: 2014 sd card capacity?

You can use FAT32 for 64 and 128 SDXS cards BUT you need reader that supports it and a third party tool like http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?guiformat.ht to format it (I think HP also has a utility)

Re: 2014 sd card capacity?

From PC Authority:

When you format a USB drive of more than 32GB, the default option is to use NTFS, which is Windows’ “native” file system. Unfortunately, while NTFS drives can be read by all major computing platforms, OS X and Linux systems can’t write to these volumes without third-party software.*

The simplest solution is to use the FAT32 format, which is supported across all three major platforms. If your disk is larger than 32GB, the Windows Format requester won’t show FAT32 as an option, but you can format a disk with this files system from the command prompt by typing “format d: /fs:fat32 /q” – where d: is the letter of your removable drive. The /q parameter specifies a quick format, which means Windows won’t spend time checking the drive for errors.

FAT32 has one limitation: individual files can’t exceed 4GB, which could be a problem if – for example – you’re planning to move huge videos or database files around. In this case, you should choose the exFAT file system: this raises the maximum file size to 16 billion gigabytes. exFAT is only supported on Windows Vista and later, and on OS X 10.6.5 or later.
