How to install 64GB SD card on coolpad note 3




Many users of Coolpad Note 3 reported that they are not able to use their 64 GB Micro SD card in their phone. Coolpad Note 3 supports 64 GB SD card then why this happens. Actually the reason is that most of the SD cards above 64 GB available in market are in exFAT format and Coolpad Note 3 supports FAT32 SD memory card format so it will not be directly recognized into the phone. So how can we use specific 64GB SD memory card in it? Below are the steps to format it into FAT32 format.

First and most important step is to backup all my data from my 64 GB SD card,which I am going to format.
First method:
format

Connect memory card to computer using card reader.Right click on it and select Format,A format local drive window will appear,select the file system as FTA32 format, check the quick format and then click on start. If your computer does not show  FAT32 option as many windows OS does not directly allow FAT32 format above 32 GB,then go to Second method.
Second Method:
Download FAT formatting tools:

Open this exe file and make sure that the MicroSD card is connected to the computer through card reader.
Select the SD card location letter in the drop down menu and hit start.
fat32

Wait for few seconds to complete the process, now you have successfully formatted the SD card to FAT32 format. Open the properties of the SD card on your computer to see whether it has been converted to a FAT32 format.  Now you can use it in your coolpad Note 3.

  2. Bro using this method we can't copy files size more than 4gb. And this method also can be used in any android device which support up to 32gb SD card to support 64gb. Then why there are fooling us by saying up to 64gb SD card.

  4. I am using 128Gb card with fat32 partition! But whats the use when you get lower transfer speeds and limit up to 4Gb file size by using yerteryear's partition!😠

    1. What can be done dear if phone supports only 32GB external SD.FAT32 is the only option to use higher capacity Micro-SD with compromised speed and file transfer size limit.

    2. That's because of Microsoft. This partition type is still the easiest and comfortable one for every one, be it a layman or an expert as long as the speed and file size doesn't matter like playing videos or watching photos. Also this is the only partition type which is commonly supported by all popular OS(Linux, OSX, of course Windows, Chrome OS etc.), so when we connect our SD card on to our computer we should be able to manage our files easily (layman too), without having to worry about the format like ext2/ext3/ext4. For a layman it would be very difficult to understand that, also it would be difficult for a layman to get stable reliable support of these kind of partition in OSX/Windows which are the common OS of any Laptop/Desktop. For technical people like us it would be very easy to say why not ext2/ext3/ext4 but not for a layman. And if it becomes difficult for layman them the popularity of Android would also go down. Hence the choice of FAT/FAT32.

  11. hi,why my coolpad note 3 is not supporting 64 GB memory card (strontium nitro micro sdxc uhs-1 class 10). i tried with formatting in fat 32 but stillthe prob is same....
    any solutions for this ?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yes, did all that I can as suggested, but CN3 will not read the 64GB Micro SD Card either as external SD or USB Storage thru OTG.
    Dont get fooled. Its a false claim. Coolpad Note 3 cannot read 64GB card as per specs.They need to prove it otherwise and give us solution. I spent more money to get an 64 GB card! (32GB I already had).

    1. Normally don't use full expandable memory which they specified. we have to use only 50% of they declared expandable memory. this is for all mobile, tabs etc.

  15. Admin, U are an absolute "LIFE SAVER".. I too had a Class 10 32GB Strontium card but wanted more space, so I ordered the Strontium 64GB Class 10 , but was shocked to see it wouldn't read. Tried everything, it wouldn't work. Almost wanted to kill myself for buying the phone and the card, until I read Ur review. Trust me guys just follow the steps correctly and it will work out for U.. Only disappointment is the decrease in the transfer speed and limited file transfer limit of 4GB.. Other than that it works great.. Thanks again Admin :)
