    ATS and SD Card Capacity

    Does anyone know the max capacity the ATS sd slot will handle?

    I want to get a 64GB but I am not sure it will be able to read it.

    Thanks.

    danscrim reported in another thread, "Playing Video", that a 64GB card with NTFS format works. Bert

    I wasn't able to get one to work. I can't format NTFS (Mac guy here) and it didn't take exFAT or JFS. 32GB with exFAT works fine, but I have 38GB of music

    I understand you also can use a USB memory stick to do the same thing. Is this correct?

    This is what I ordered. It didn't work out of the box (formatted as exFAT). I formatted as NTFS and put on about 40 GB of music. Didn't work. I tried an old microSD -> SD adapter (not the one that came with the 64 GB card) and it worked! So that's what I've been using ever since with no problems!

    I am surprised that the adapter itself had anything to do with it working.

    this is what I ordered - SanDisk 64GB microSDXC Memory Card Ultra Class 10, pretty good price.

    Ordered that exact same thing. I also was surprised. I toggled them back and forth a couple times and couldn't get the new adapter to work. Although it worked in my computer. Very weird. I'm not saying it's going to happen to everyone... just something to look out for.

    I wonder what would happen if the SD card had multiple partitions. Would it recognize two 32GB partitions from a 64GB card.

    Haha, no worries. It's in the center console next to the two USB ports and headphone jack. I have no idea if it's included on non-CUE models.

    I have spent tons of time with the CUE but not digging around much in the console. Thanks for the quick reply.

    Hmm. Interesting idea. I assume they have a Linux kernel, so in principle it should find both devices...

    I do remember reading that cue is linux based. I won't be able to provide answers until I get the car.

    What I'm curious about is how large is the internal memory of the cue system?

    I've got a 32 gig usb drive mounted behind the radio face that stays in the car. Plenty of music for my driving. If I need more, my phone is always on me and connected via bluetooth
