"So, I've got a new SanDisk 64GB Class 10 micro SD card and want to use it for app and data storage. Unfortunately, the stock format - exFAT - is not recognized by many apps. So I tried to format it to FAT32. But I have been having problems formatting the SD card in Windows 10. It appears to not be supported. Is there any other way that I can use to format an SD with FAT32 in Windows 10 successfully with ease?"
