    I read that it will only work with some phones so I'm curious if that applies with flash cards as well

    Step 1) Buy 128gb mSD card
    Step 2) Insert mSD card into PC
    Step 3) ????????
    Step 4) Profit!!!!!


    But really Step 3 is just formatting it to FAT32.

    No, your micro sd should NEVER cost more then the product it goes into.

    It will work, you just need to use the panasonic SD formatter to re-format it as FAT32. They usually come formatted as exFAT, and that's why people claim they don't work.

    Formatting to fat32 in windows can be a PITA. I recently had to do this for an external ps3 drive and I tried over half a dozen programs. In the end I did it in OSX NATIVE disk utility and it worked like a charm.
