Re: NTFS Support

The actual drive is different. If the drive was shipped with 16 or 32GB cards it cannot be upgraded to work with exFAT. You can reformat a 64GB card in FAT 32 and it will work but you will be limited to single files smaller than 4GB

Re: NTFS Support

This is very disappointing.  We were first promised we would exFAT support with a firmware update and then they backtracked on that.

Re: NTFS Support

I think it will work now according to this.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Re: NTFS Support

exFAT is still only supported on drives that were shipped with a 64GB card. if the WFD was shipped with a 16 or 32GB card you can use a 64 but you will need to reformat it in FAT32.

Re: NTFS Support

Disapointing doesn't come close.

 

6 years after ExFat's release and you won't support it or NTFS. Isn't the point of this device to stream media? HD movies typically exceed 4GB and I can't stream them because Sandisk will not embrace relevant filesystems that evem MAC supports.

 

Had I known this limitation (not cited in your user or QS manual) prior to purchase I never would have bought it. More than two weeks to find this out and returniing it is no longer a option. I count that as $60 wasted.

 

Not the 1st time your policies have burned me but I think it will be the last. I am stuck with a useless 'wireless' drive that is nothing more than a grossly overpriced 32GB flash drive I could have gotten for a sixth the price.from another mfgr.

 

Disgusted is a far more accurate label.

Re: NTFS Support

I think it will eventually support NTFS but it may take time to develop it though. Unfortunate but that will be the case here.

Re: NTFS Support

I am also not impressed, seriously even the cheapest meadia player support ntfs. 80% of my movies will not be able to be played as they are over 4gb? I would even be happy with exfat.
