Default 64GB SDXC card for the O2 works!

I got a Trancend 64GB SDXC card from Amazon to use in my Cowon D2 and O2 players.

When I got the card, it came formatted in the 'exFAT' format, which doesn't work on either player.

I have a card reader on my computer, and putting the card in, I tried to reformat it in Windows 7. It allows me to format in 'exFAT' or 'NTFS' both of which don't work on the D2.

So doing a web search led me to this free Windows utility that lets you format the card in 'fat32' format, which then makes the card work for both players.

Note that you cannot leave the card in your player when working with your computer to format/transfer/delete. You need a USB card reader, or a card reader that's in your computer. So to format the card, or to transfer or delete files to it, you need to take the card out of your O2/D2 and plug it into a card reader if you have Windows 7. Using that utility above to format the card to 'fat32' you can then drag-and-drop music or videos to the card.

If you get the 128GB SDXC card by Lexar (the only 128GB card I know of right now) this should apply to that card as well, but I'm just guessing.

Cheers!

BTW, using the D2 and O2 as flac players for all my 24-bit high definition files (converted to 16-bit flac as they don't do 24-bit, no big deal) along with a Headroom Total Bithead amp and various headphones (like the Etymotic ER-4P and Ultrasone Pro 550) for a portable, super high-quality listening session.

The D2 is still, in my opinion, Cowon's best MP3 player ever, with the O2 following a close second. Thankfully the batteries for the D2 are still available online, but I worry about my O2!

I thought the O2 could handle 24bit/96KHz?

I don't know what this reply has to do with anything regarding this thread...

Anyway Keal it's good to see that you still use your O2. I would if i hadn't broken it by accident. Got the J3 now.. Still has only 5 bands of EQ versus the O2's 10. I loved having that sort of precision in sound adjustment on that thing. Anyway I was under the impression that the SD slot could only handle 32 gig cards.

Thanks keal for the information. I just installed a 64gb card in my O2, with the use of that format program.

Just to clarify, the O2 seems to only reccogize 32gb of the 64gb card. It shows up in explorer but it will only show 32gb on the player and the remaing space is not accessible, unless I am missing something. So save your money and stay with the 32gb card.

Okay apparently it works, but it seems to take awhile for the system to recognize all the files on the card. Everytime I shut down the O2 and turn it back on and go to the card it recognizes more files, it recognizes over 8000 of the 8500 music files that I put on the card. Now to see if it will play them.
