I didn't see mention of this Great News! in a forum search.
The S3 can now transfer individual files over 4GB to an SD card (must format card first). No more splitting movies into parts and such. The new OS in the phone now accepts the exFat file system which doesn't have that old 4GB limits (Fat32). For gosh sakes it's 2012, about time huh? I transferred some large individual movie files all over 5GB with no problems using a USB cable.
Before installing your new SD card in the phone:
- Put the card in a Windows 7 PC using the adapter
- Format the card to "exFat" by selecting the File System drop down. Leave on "Quick Format"
- Now put the card in the phone. Transfer files with no worries. (You can load data on the card before putting in the phone).
I purchased this 32GB w/Adapter which oddly enough.
Came in this "Made for Android" package.
Just another ad for these Sandisk.
