    Format Ext SD Card to NTFS or FAT32?

    Seeking clarification: My A500 is stock and running ICS. Is it OK now to use NTFS format for a 32GB external micro-SD card or must it still be formatted to FAT32?

    You should be good with FAT32 for now, if you go with a higher storage micro SD card then format to NTFS.

    Thanks Rob, but will my A500 work with an ext 32GB SD card formatted to NTFS? I want to store some large 4+GB movie files on the SD card, which would exceed the FAT32's file size limit. The A500's User Manual says to use FAT32 format for the SD card, but I don't know if that's still true.
