Well considering the proprietary file system and encryption used for usb devices on the Wii U, i'm surprised they didn't do the same for the Switch (for sd cards tbh)

I Didn't :( I don't have a switch lol...

What about sdxc cards, the console downloads an update to support them, does it support exfat?
SDXC is identical to SDHC except cosmetic differences.

No one supports/wants/needs exfat, FAT32 can support up to 32TB volumes, except Microsoft.

but you can't have a file bigger than 4GB in fat32, in the switch maybe it's not usefull but in normal devices it's really usefull....

This just in: Switch supports 120V outlets.

Still trying to find out if the system is compatible with human hands. Will keep you posted.
switch is not compatible with 120V outlets...
however the charger yes, it is compatible...

Oh god please let this be sarcasm D:


thanks for the info, heh, since the switch is not supposed to be a tablet, i guess it's ok
Even after it formated the sd, you still can use it in other devices. To be honest, i didn't check if it's create any kind of partition or change few bytes

However, I was using the card in a Raspberry Pi 3 running Retropie previously and I formatted it afterwards with Diskpart, etc, before using it in the Switch. After formatting it in the Switch, the PC recognizes it as exFat, so the issue may have been a partition issue before that, which is why the Switch complained about it.
