Windows 7: NTFS vs exFAT and SDHC/SDXC UHS-1

18 Mar 2011   #1

Win7 Pro x32 SP1
 
 
NTFS vs exFAT and SDHC/SDXC UHS-1

I see that the new high speed SDXC & SDHC cards that are using UHS-1 will be in exFAT format.
Will my Win7Pro32 using NTFS format recognize these?
Are there new drivers I need to download for my card reader to see these?
I have nor purchased one of these new cards yet for my new HD camcorder, so would like to know before I do the big spend on one of these high speed cards.

System is a Dell Inspiron 530 about 2-3 yrs old.

Hi and welcome to SF!
Yes, Windows 7 recognizes these formats natively, but I recommend that it be with the SP1 installed. As to whether your card reader will be able to read them, I'd say no - taking into account the age of your Dell. But if you can tell the model of card reader, I could tell with more certainty. Use Speccy - Download in case of not knowing what type of card reader. I look forward for your reply.

Don't know if this truly answers your question about your own computer, but the netbook I just bought, its specs say that it can read the SDXC cards.....

Here we go. Will require a firmware update. Before you proceed to the download page, WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU CAREFULLY READ the following text:

"BEFORE UPDATING FIRMWARE REMOVE ANY MEMORY CARDS FROM THE CARD READER SLOTS.
DO NOT POWER DOWN COMPUTER UNTIL FIRMWARE UPDATE IS COMPLETE."

Read and followed all the guidelines expressed therein, behold, the link to the download page: Drivers and Downloads
And do not forget to read the installation instructions at the bottom. Especially the part that reads:
"After Computer Shutdown, remove the AC plug, and wait for one minute before turning the computer on."

Let us know the results!
