How do i use a 64gb sdxc card on my windows 7 64bit laptop?

Q: How do i use a 64gb sdxc card on my windows 7 64bit laptop?

Hi, i have just bought a sandisk 64gb extreme pro sdxc memory card for my camera, it works fine in the camera and saves pics to it, but every time i open it in windows it tells me i have to format the card, when i do format it, it goes through the whole process and then tells me the operation cannot complete.

I know the card is formatted as exfat, does windows 7 not support this?

my laptop uses windows 7 64bit.

Can anyone please advise as i am not sure how i am going to get any pictures in the future onto my laptop.



Preferred Solution: How do i use a 64gb sdxc card on my windows 7 64bit laptop?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

If you format it in the computer, you will loose the pictures.

Doesn`t the camera have a usb cord to connect to the laptop ? Much the same way as my iphone ?

I recently purchased an 64GB SDXC card and formatted it to Fat32. Sometimes it works, but most of the time I am unable to copy files to it. Windows 8 keeps saying problem with drive or something that pops up in top right corner. Anything I can do about this? The SDXC card is Pixtor SanDisk.

A:Unable to copy to SDXC 64GB Fat32 Windows 8.1

FAT 32 can not save files larger than 4GB, are you trying some of those maybe ? For those you need to format it to NTFS or xFAT.

I?ve also checked user?s manuals for your machine and you are absolutely right. This SDXC card should be recognized properly. The capacity is definitely supported.

You must understand that we cannot say for sure why the card is not recognized properly.
Is card reader installed and listed properly in device manager?

Hello, I am planning to buy i a new laptop with 64gb ram. Found that Precision 15 7000 Series (7510) supports 64gb ram. can i reconfigure this laptop to come with only on board intel graphic card. I dont need any graphic card as my work is mainly on linux and cloud. I am not getting that option in the website. Thanks and Regards, Sreejith P

A:64gb ram Laptop with intel graphic card

You cannot.  Any notebook that supports 64G of memory will have a correspondingly high-end (nVidia or AMD) GPU.  There is nothing that stops you from disabling the discrete GPU and using only the Intel one, however -- it's just that there isn't much demand for a heavy duty pickup truck essentially powered by a 3-cylinder engine.

Hey Guys!

TL : DR: All files accessable but contain binary-gibberish

So I was at a friends place yesterday and he told me that his phone (sony xperia z5) crashed and woudn't restart until he removed the SDXC card (exFAT formated, 64GB). He tried to access his data from his PC (Windows 10) and wasn't able to do so.

So when I inserted his sd card in his PC It got recognized as an exFAT volume of correct size and showed all (as far as I can tell) data in a resonable size (nothing like, all mp3's are 4kb or so), but as soon as I opend a file (like photos or music) it said that it isn't a supported format. even file that should contain plaintext had not a single word in it and looked more like a binary opend in notepad. I opened one in mp3Diags and couldn't find a proper header or any mpeg stream. The filesystem seemed fine and I checked it with chkdsk. Even writing a new file to it works and is perfectly readable.

Does anyone knows what causes this and/or how to get on the data?

A:SDXC exFAT card files readable but corrupted

Sounds like the data was corrupted in some way, possibly malware or virus. But could just be a hardware glitch with the phone. Is a different card working in the phone?

I have a HP Stream 10" laptop with the standard Windows 10 Home image on the built-in eMMC. There is very little scope to shrink the windows partition enough to install linux along side on the same eMMc.  I have therefore purchased a 64GB micro SDXC card, inserted same into the micro SD slot and attempted to install Linux as follows: Distributions were Mageia 5 Live on USB and OpenSuse Tumbleweed on USB CD, using essentially the same approach.The existing UEFI partition was mounted as /boot/efi  in the partitioning setup in each case and nominated as the boot partition. Linux root, swap and home partitions were defined and formatted to ext4 with appropriate mount points on the second SD card. In each case, the relevant installer completed without errors.  However, on reboot, both cases immediately went into 'grub rescue' mode, listing a uuid that could not be found during the boot process. After issuing 'set' then following with ls on every item shown came up with 'Filesystem unknown'. Using the other approach, of booting a Linux live system, mounting installed directories, chroot and attempting to run grub-install ended up with an error message saying something to the effect of  'no corresponding BIOS disk for this device'. So, my first question is whether what I am attempting here can work at all.

Hello. I have recently got a Linx 10 windows tablet (Intel atom based), but it only has 32gb of storage of which 24gb is available. I recently purchased a Micro sdxc class 10 card (benchmarked at 25mb/s read/write on the Linx10 with crystaldisk), i was hoping to install applications on it where storage speed would be less critical. When i try to install programs on it such as visual studio it states that i cannot install it on removable media and steam does not list it as a drive. Is there anyway to make the tablet treat the micro sdxc as if it is an internal storage device so that i can use it like a hard drive? Or are there any other ways to make applications install onto it?

Thanks for any help,

Just purchased a sandisk 64gb microsd. When I put it in, windows says it needs to be formatted. I went to format it as exfat but it only sees the drive as27gb. Same thing if I select ntfs. Is there something I am doing wrong or is this a faulty microsd card. If I use swissknife to look at the removable drives, it shows the drive as being 64GB and formatted already.

A:Win 7 only seeing half of 64GB microSD card

Fat32! There's only one format you can use being Fat not exFat or NTFS for any memory card including those on cell, smart phones, etc. This is the manufacturers's standards across the board unlike you typical flash drive or SSD if not other drive.

The cell phones, cameras, and other portables will see a Fat 32 volume as soon as you select the format option on any of those. Unfortunately now you will have to see if you can view the other Fat volume and nuke both off the card in order to see just the one 60.4644gb actual space.

A:repair my 64GB SD card which can't be opened and formatted

There are sadly too many fake 64GB cards out there. It?s really difficult to repair USB drives when they get badly physical damage. I?ve experienced same problem with my USB drive. I couldn?t open it and see its correct size in My Computer. Neither Disk Management nor Command Prompt is able to reformat or fix it. It seems that the memory chip is damaged, which leads to system can?t format it. Another reason of such problem might be bad sectors which can?t be read or written. Since formatting is a sort of writing operation and rewrites file system. Thus if the drive has bad sectors, then it can?t be formatted.
In a word, if you can?t repair it by yourself, then buying a new SD card is a batter choice.
How to fix - Windows was unable to complete the format error on USB drive

A:My new sandisk 64gb card is not recognised on my notebook pc

omg i just solved my own problem guys! i feel like a genius right now. What i did was this Remember  i have already downloaded my sd card reader using a software or watever, called driverIdentifier. it listed all my drives and showed me what was missing- and allowed me to download an sd card reader. The problem was that i did not know how to install it onto my list of devices on device manager.  So instead of going dirrectly onto device manager (where the missing drive was not listed)  i searched system-> clicked it and clicked advanced system settings. Then i chose hardware section-> then click device manager--> an advanced list popped up showing me exactly what driver was missing--> highlighted in yellow exclamation mark was this -> PCI. i right clicked it and chose to manually install drive- i went to the location of the .cad file i downloaded and it installed automatically.  Now under disk devices in device manager, there is SDXC Card listed there. and my san disk card has been recognised. yay So happy. Hope this helps another noob like me lol.

Hi ITWorxLA,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
As per system overview :
IO port: Memory card slot (SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC)
Platform specification:
One microSD Card slot, supports up to 2TB
Usually there would be stickers on the box or laptop to indicate the format it also supports.
You can try to find/borrow  a spare 32GB SDXC to test first before purchase.
Hope this helps answer your query.

HI I have a Satellite Pro L300 running Win XP to which I wish to attach a USB Card Reader. I find that I cannot read the 64GB cards. The error is that the card is not formatted.

things i've tried so far

1. in disk management within windows 7 I have the disk listed but "no media"
2. using DISKPART I can select the volume (says type Removable) yet size zero bytes and status "NO MEDIA"
3. I selected the disk and partition and attempted to extend size=64000 and 63000 just in case that worked but did not and came back with Virtual Disk Service Error: the operation is not supported on removable media
4. in disk management i've changed the drive letter to see if that makes a difference
5. i've tried multiple SD Card adapters also so I doubt that is the issue, i've also tried on a laptop with no luck just in case and also tried other memory cards in the same reader so the reader is fine.
there are some very important photographs on the SD card and was wondering if there were any other steps I could take to see if I can get the photographs back.

I have a DVB card called Twinhan 1025

Twinhan company is gone so they dont provide new drivers

the driver we have is for Vista 64bit which works well with RAM more or less than 4 GB but in Windows 7 64bit it works with only RAM less than 4 GB

My RAM is 6 GB when I boot normally I am able to get the signal level and quality but cant add channels or view them

when I set the boot option the limits the memory to 4000MB I am able to view or add new channels
This is not a software issue
cause I have tried programs in compatibility mode and as administrator
and download viewers for 64bit OS and for 32 bit OS

So it's a driver problem or Windows 7 problem

Now can I do something to make Windows allow this driver to map specific range of memory ?
Please help with any solution cause the workaround of limiting the boot memory isn't a practical one

A:After failed graphics card and replacement, Windows 7 Pro 64bit seems trashed.

Power up your computer, it doesn't need to boot to anything  all you want to do is get power on your optical drive so you can get the Windows install disc in. Then shut it down and re-boot it. Since you have a dual boot system you should either come to a screen which asks boot from Ubuntu or Cd, or you will be told 'Press any key to boot from Cd'. Press any key and let it boot. You will come to a screen which asks you to pick a default language, and having picked one, the next screen asks 'Install Windows' or 'Repair Windows'. Choose 'Repair' and let it run. This will do a repair install which will not overwrite your data.
It is possible that your Windows system has become too badly corrupted for this to work, in which case you will have to do a complete re-install, which will wipe out your data. A way to get round this problem is to take out the HDD that you Windows is on, plug it into someone else's computer as a second drive, and you should be able to copy the data off it either to the original hard drive in that computer or to an external hard drive. Then return your hard drive to your computer and carry out a complete re-install of Windows. This is a complete pain in the rear because you will then have to re-install everything that was on that partition.
Good luck,

Hi all,

I am having a problem installing windows on the above SSD drive. I currently have a 300gb velociraptor as my system drive but have bought the above drive.

I am trying to do a fresh install of Windows 8. It seems to get ad far as installing updates but just hangs. I have also tried windows 7 and it gets as far as finishing installation, but again hangs.

Just to note I disconnected all of my other drives during the installation.

I've gone back into Windows on my existing drive and gone into disk management and it picks the ssd drive up and shows the expected size.

Am I doing something wrong? Is there any software that could detect a possible faulty ssd drive?

I am new to this forum and looking for some opinions. I recently built a new desktop and installed Win 7 64bit and it was a walk in the park. So now I am going to upgrade the wife's laptop. It is a HP Pavilion zv6270us. It has a Athlon 64 3500+ at 2.0GHz with 2GB DDR PC2700 Cl 2.5 333mhz memory. I dual booted Win 7 RC 64bit to test and had a few driver problems since HP won't support this unit for Win 7. I was able to use some Vista drivers with a hack to get the sound working. Only thing not working is the Fax Modem which I never use. We use the laptop for E-Mail, Web browsing and wife is addicted to "Bejeweled 2" which runs fine under Win 7 64.
I was thinking of installing Win 7 32bit and wondering if 64bit was worth the effort as far as bootup time and performance. I was thinking 32bit might have better drivers and might even perform better.
All opinions welcome and thanks in advance.


A:Windows 7 64bit or 32bit on old Laptop

Hello Jim, Welcome!

I would strongly recommend using the 32 bit version. Besides having better driver compatibility, it uses less resources. It is misunderstood that 64-bit is faster. Long story!

The only reason to go x64 is if you have 4GB or more of RAM. 32-bit cannot address more than 4GB, but in practice, it will only address about 3.5GB.

When going from 43bit to 64bit you have to do a clean install. I dont think The 32 bit OEM key you have will work for 64bit OEM>

I was wondering if anyone could help me with this issue I am having.

I have a HP Pavilion Dv7 laptop with a Radeon HD6770M Video card and when I installed the initial drivers after doing a factory restore on my laptop the video card showed the HD6770M in the device manager. Once I updated the drivers using the driver update utility from AMD the card now shows up as the HD6700M which is messing with video and games. This is really becoming an issue because I cannot update the Intel HD graphics drivers as well.

Any help with getting these drivers working correctly would be greatly appreciated.

(I should have sufficient system setup info in my system on the forums. If not let me know)

A:Windows 7 64Bit Driver issues for the Radeon HD6770M Video Card

Try installing the drivers from the HP site.

I have had a massive HDD failure. I found a spare 250Gb and installed a copy of windows 7 Ultimate 64bit on it. Sadly I don't own windows 8 or 8.1 that my laptop was designed for. So my question is ther anyway to get drivers for this laptop using 7 64bit os? I know I can get the amd apu driver via amd.com but not sure about the rest. Most important one is my wireless and USB 3.0 drivers. But all would be best. I have looked in official drivers but only 8 and 8.1 drivers made for this computer. And as old as it is this is my only option for looking for help. thanks in advance, Alice

A:Can I get Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit working on a G7 Laptop?

Try the Windows 7 drivers for the 455 G1 which uses the same processor series and chipset. You will find the AMD chipset and USB 3.0 at least http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=5359416&swLangOid=8&swEnvOid=4059 If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Hi there,

I was wondering if I could please get some help in figuring out why I am getting Blue Screen's of Death
Laptop Details:Laptop Type: Toshiba Satellite L500/013 (this exact model is not that common, it is fairly new)
Bought from Dick Smith 2 week ago
Operating System: Windows 7 - 64 bit OEM (came pre-installed, along with all of Toshiba's programs)
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo T6600, 2.2Ghz
Video card: ATI Radeon HD4650 (Mobility)
Memory: 4GB, 800Mhz DDR2
Hard Disk Drive: 500GB
Antivirus/Firewall: ZoneAlarm Free Basic Firewall (The Laptop came with a free 60-day trial of Norton pre-installed, I have however removed it as I don't like it very much. I have also disabled windows firewall as this can clash with ZoneAlarm)

Information about the blue-screens:They usually occur once per day, but twice today - within 10 minutes of each other, however only in the last 7 days (possibly coinciding with the ZoneAlarm install)
7 blue-screens have occurred in total so far (according to Event Viewer)
They usually occur when I am away from the laptop (just nearby using my desktop), leaving it open for whatever reason and I notice the laptop blue-screen then restart in my peripheral
I have updated the drivers for my laptop on the mytoshiba website (including the BIOS), my laptop's model number is PSLS3A-01301D
I have included the files from the C:\Windows\Minidump folder (saved as "minidumps.zip")

A:BSOD on Toshiba Laptop, Windows 7, 64bit - please help

There are issues with your Shrew Soft device. I've seen several issues with this program over the last couple of weeks - so I recommend uninstalling it.

Also, go into your Device Manager and uninstall all the Teredo Tunneling Adapter's that are showing problems. When you reboot the system they'll be reinstalled if they're needed.

There is no MSINFO32.exe report in the uploads, please generate that report, zip it up, and upload it with your next post.

The memory dumps point to ntkrnlmp.exe - which is the kernel (core) of the operating system. If it truly was at fault, then you'd be having more problems than just the occasional BSOD.

Please run Driver Verifier according to these directions to help identify the faulty driver:


Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter

Hi there!

I have an existing windows 7 installation with lots of my programs installed over it.
I got a new laptop and would like to copy over my existing windows over to new laptop.

The laptops differ in h/w specs. Which means drivers of existing windows will fail to load correctly on new laptop. Keeping this in mind, whats my best bet to move this over.

Is their a way to strip off all drivers from my existing windows 7 install and keep all my program installation intact?

Edit: Ignoring the licensing issue right now. I would like to know is it technically possible.
Edit: I read this guide: Windows 7 Installation - Transfer to a New Computer but I belive its not applicable to my scenario because h/w differs.

A:Clone windows 7 ultimate 64bit to new laptop

Unfortunately, no. Especially because of the license keys. You can though, with the windows installed on the other pc, You could use windows 7 easy transfer mode.
Windows Easy Transfer - Microsoft Windows

Keep in mind this will not transfer programs. It will transfer their data and settings, as well as your personal files though.
You will need to re-install your programs ether way.

Unless, this is just a guess, but you could possibly do the system image and copy it over, then change the licence key to match the new one on the new pc.....but I do not think that will work. As the key will probably not work since it is most likely a retail key.

hi to all,
I have a shutdown problem since one year ago when I changed my 32 bit windows seven to 64 bit. I need 64 bot windows to be able using all of my laptop ram capacity. but just when run academic softwares (MATLAB and HeuristicLab), and increasing RAM and Cpu usage to more than 90%, my laptop turns off without any warning but not immediately, it turns black for about one secound and then turns off.
I explained this with more details last year in this post. you can see results of some tests there.
it's not a thermal issue as explained in post above.
last year I reinstalled my 64 bit windows and the problem gone temporarily (I guess it was result of having much less programs an RAM usage) but after few days it occurred again.
last year I thought it was a HeuristicLab bug, but now it occurs again on MATLAB but I detect some new information about it.
First off all shut down occurs just when I am using parallel computing in both softwares (it never happens in daily works or on other softwares). my laptop cpu has two core and four threads, in MATLAB parallel have some controls, when I activate two workers and run the code, two of threads are idle in task manager and laptop never turns off even if I run the code for more than 50 hours; but when I use four workers, MATLAB uses all threads and more RAM and problem occurs again
I don't know this happens when I use more than 90% of RAM usage or CPU usage and why it happens.
I would be very thankful for any suggestions and help.

Hey everyone! I just downloaded the 64bit version of Windows Developer Preview without the dev tools last night, burned it to a dvd this morning, and installed it next to Windows 7 and Windows XP on my Gateway NV59c laptop.

It works well. It detected all my hardware and it all seems to be working right out of the box. Better than what Windows 7 produced. It even recognizes my card reader after install. In Windows 7 I had to go a download the driver for it.

I only had one BSOD. It was trying to install Avast Internet Security. It installed no problem, save for the dialogue telling me of a compatibility issue. But after restarting Windows, it would keep BSODing at boot. But after three attempts to boot, it went into recovery mode and allowed me to use system restore. So all is well!

But ya, just wanted to let you all know that it works on this laptop perfectly fine in case anyone might be wondering about a Gateway laptop.
