    I don't know about ext4 SD cards but sometimes, storage devices from certain manufacturers can't be formatted in every way.

    I had an old external HDD that could be formatted only as FAT32 and not NTFS. Maybe you could try formating an ext4 SD card from a different manufacturer to see if the problem persists.
