A caution about sd card readers and cards larger than 64GB

A caution about sd card readers and cards larger than 64GB

Learn from my experience.

I bought a new phone and wanted a bigger SDHC card for storage. After careful review I selected Amazon as my supplier. Though after reading some reviews I decided to trust but verify.

Bought the card and tested it with the freeware FakeFlash which said it was a fake. So I decided to spend the time using what many consider to be the best SD card tester out there, H2testw. It also said the card had problems over 64GB.

I was ready to return the card but I hate to be wrong so I did a little digging and found that many pocket USB card reader can not handle cards greater than 64GB and even many of the internal reader made before 2007 have the same problem

I had a new internal reader so I installed it and retested the card.

It was legit. h2testw wrote and verified all 119 GB of usable space.

Looks like our image uploader is not working so they look like this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-2-0-Mem...gAAOSw1S9WeMik

Nice write up, nowadays many gadgets specify the maximum external storage space it could reach
