SDXC and exFAT

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Some data transfer devices, for example SDXC cards, are formatted with Microsoft's exFAT filesystem. Not all computers offer exFAT support.

DICE SL7 does not currently include exFAT compatibility because we cannot confirm that open source exFAT software is legal.

Most Windows versions support exFAT (see wikipedia for a list). On Macs, OS X has supported exFAT since version 10.6.5. Some versions of Linux, for example Debian, offer exFAT support.
