Hi,

I have a micro sd card of 128gb and 256gb, and want to know what the supported porper format for these cards with the M6 player, exFAT or FAT32?  Can the M6 work with both?

FiiO always works best with FAT32. You cannot use Windows to do a FAT32 format on anything larger than 30 gb so you will need to format in the device if available (I'm not familiar with the M6) or use any of the stand-alone formatters available.

Supported formats are FAT32, exFAT and NTFS.

Formatting in recent Windows versions are only supporting exFAT and NTFS. If you have still an old Windows XP pc somewhere, you can do it with that (DON'T connect to the internet!), but you can also use Linux to format sd-cards in FAT32. And of course the internal option.

Yes, exFAT and NTFS are supported but are slow compared to FAT32. I was getting lots of stuttering errors and similar problems before I switched to FAT32.

Dear friend,

You would need to format the card from your PC instead.

Best regards
