  • Please, please, please – if and SD Card larger than 32 GB (an SDXC Card if 64 GB → 2 TB – an SDUC Card if 2 TB → 128 TB) then, the File System has to be exFAT.
  • The reason is, the SDXC and SDUC specifications demand that, the File System be exFAT.
  • And, there's circuitry on these cards which enforces digital rights management (DRM) content-protection – the Content Protection for Recordable Media (CPRM) security circuitry.

I haven't found anything, yet, to support an assumption that, this physical circuitry on the SD Cards also demands that, the File System has to be exFAT – but, I wouldn't be surprised if that were to be case …
Therefore, what you should do is –

  • A good practise before the correct File System is placed on the device, is to 1st zero the first few blocks on the device –

 #  dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/sdb iflag=fullblock bs=1G count=2 status=progress
 #  dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb iflag=fullblock bs=1G count=2 status=progress
  • First, you'll have to partition the device –

 # fdisk -c=dos /dev/sdb
  • Then, place an exFAT File System on the partition you've just created – you'll need the openSUSE Package “exfatprogs”:

 # mkfs.exfat /dev/sdb1
The result should look something like this:
 # LANG=C fdisk -l /dev/sdf
Disk /dev/sdf: 59.48 GiB, 63864569856 bytes, 124735488 sectors
