- The ability to move data to SD card is variable for select apps and games. Only apps that developers have opted in as moveable to external storage can be moved.
- SHIELD only supports writing to FAT32 formatted cards. This is a limitation of Android.
- 32 GB (or less) microSD cards– SHIELD supports FAT32 data format. Most microSD cards that are 32 GB or less are already formatted as FAT32. If the memory card is not formatted, format to FAT32, using your PC or Mac computer.
- 64 GB (or higher) microSD cards– Android does not support the exFAT file system out-of-the-box. Because the standard FAT32 file system does NOT support partitions greater than 32 GB by default, 64 GB cards come pre-formatted as exFAT. If you want to use a 64 GB microSD with SHIELD, it has to be converted to a file system format that is supported by stock Android, which in this case is NTFS. This can be done using a PC.
- KitKat significantly changes the way applications are allowed to use SD cards.
