Hiya, I've bought numerous 32gb memory cards, i use them all over the place, in the house we have 3 tablets, 2 smart phones, 2 laptops a PC, plus a few flash storage devices. On to the problem:
There seems to be a limit on how much information they can hold at a time. I've done some research and found out that using the fat-32 format there is a 4gb limit on file size apparently, and none of my files break that limit. I have since tried making sure none of my folders go over 4gb in case that counts as part of the limit, so i have numerous folders all under 4gb, but i still end up with errors and having to 'repair' my disk. Here is an actual example of one of my problems:
I have nearly all the final fantasy games, i used to be a big fan. I have a playstation emulator on my android tabs and phone, so i took my Playstation discs, and used image burn to burn them all into .bin files onto my PC, and then transfer them, and the bios needed to play them on a tablet/phone to the micro SD. It all seems to go well at first, but when i put it into my phone/tablet, the first lot in the list seems to be ok, and the last lot seems to be corrupt and unusable. If i change around what i put onto the disk, then ones that were previously error filled are fine. I did do a bit of fiddling and testing it seems to be that the error occurs once i get over 4gb of storage.
After reading about the 4gb limit of fat32, im sure im doing something wrong, as manufacturers wouldnt release a 32gb card with only 4gb of it usable, but i cant for the life of me figure out what it is. I've tried using ordinary formatting with windows 8 (right click the card in the 'my computer' folder) on both fast and full formatting, and I've since tried a proper SD formatter program and then tried putting all the info back, and cant seem to get it to work.
Any help/advice would be VERY much appreciated.
