Default SD card not working (Uconnect)

Hi, my Uconnect does not recognize the SD card I put in the reader. It is a 64GB new class 10 card, and it has been written on by a Mac computer. The card itself works fine on the computer, but the Uconnect won't even notice it is in the slot.

Question is: do I need to format the card in some specific ways in order for the car to use it? Or is there a maximum size for the cards (say 32GB or something)?

If not, I am starting to fear it is broken. But the car is brand new. Had it for less than a week!

Thanks

I'm hearing max size is 32gb, so a repartition might allow it to work (two 32 gb partitions). Also the card must be in FAT32 format... Not sure if Macs can format in FAT32 without some addition software.

I believe there is a 32GB limit. Looking for the full tech specs now.

Crabjoe, yes they can under Applications->Utilities->Disk Utility. I do it all the time.

SPP info will be the best but here's another chain that was flowing last week on same subject. From this, your issue does appear to be the 64Gb card size.

The problem is you have an SDXC card, your truck can only read SDHC cards. SDHC cards only come in sizes up to 32gb, although SDXC cards are also made in 32gb and smaller sizes.

I've search high and low but could never find any authoritative published specification regarding the type/formatting of the SD card.

If anyone come across this information please share. BTW, Amazon is having on and off sales of 32 gig SD cards.

I'm using a Transcend 32GB MicroSDHC Class 10 card with an adapter. Works great and I can also use it in my smartphone, by not using the adapter. I got it on Amazon.
