File System for Data Storage Capacity

Before Using Your SDXC Memory Card

Before choosing your card, it is important that you understand how to use your memory card to its greatest ability. SDXC memory cards and devices (digital cameras, video cameras, laptops, etc.) are now available. Learn how to use your new SDXC memory card to optimize its performance.

Confirm Compatibility

Before inserting your SD memory card, confirm the device is compatible with the SD standard by locating an SD logo on the device or referring to the device's user manual or manufacturer information.

Understanding Backwards Compatibility

The SD Formatter was created specifically for memory cards using the SD/SDHC/SDXC standards. 

It is strongly recommended to use the SD Formatter instead of formatting utilities provided with operating systems that format various types of storage media. Using generic formatting utilities may result in less than optimal performance for your memory cards.
