Sorry to resurrect an old thread but...
kamil40013 advised to format memory sticks as exFAT - which I did here and it's worked fine for months. But this morning I inserted my memory stick and my Galaxy-Z flip refused to mount it. I tried several re-starts but all it does now is to display a message saying that it's now charging an attached device. The memory stick gets recognised by Windows and Mac but not by Android any more on the Z-flip.
I tried a regular FAT32 memory stick and that one gets recognised. So has Android stopped supporting exFAT recently?

@kamil40013 I only have the one mobile phone here and it does react when I plug in either memory stick - but only the FAT32 one gets seen as a drive. The exFAT memory stick used to work - but now it just pops up a message to say it's getting charged. However, even though PC's etc are happy with the same memory stick, my phone doesn't show it as a mountable drive any more 😟

It's looking like this might've been a capacity problem. When mounted in Windows I noticed that the memory stick contained files totalling over 88GB. So I deleted all the files I don't need and that brought it down to under 5GB - and now suddenly my phone can mount it again.
