If I have a micro SD card formatted as exFAT, will that enable me to have it read by both my Note 9 and my Macbook Air?
I have a SanDisk 64gb Micro SD card. It was formatted as FAT32, showing up as 'WINDOWS_FAT_32' on my Mac running OS Mountain Lion. The Mac couldn't read the card as it only reads what it calls 'MS-DOS (fat)'.
On my Samsung Galaxy Note 9 I was using File Explorer Pro to transfer files from my Note 9 internal storage to the micro SD card. However it was very slow and was prone to crashing. In one case it caused two corrupted 0kb files to be created that I couldn't even delete on my brothers Windows 10 laptop.
So I thought if I out the card in my Mac I could download the files to it and reorganise them on it. However the default formatting on my Android phone is FAT32, aka WINDOWS_FAT_32.
