    Or you can just install the new driver over the top of the old one.

    That's what I did and the new exFAT driver works great.

    Hate to sound dumb but are you saying to sideload the new driver listed in the first post over the one already on the phone? I have a 64 gb sandisk card and am running OS version 10.3.0.1154. I checked the card properties and it says format type is exFat. Please provide step by step of the process, I am missing something and don't understand why I get the handle invalid message. Thanks in advance for any assistance anyone provides.

    Is this fix made obsolete by 10.3.1.938 or this applies to this version too?

    That's exactly what I'm saying. I side loaded it over the top if the other driver using the amazing Sachesi tool.

    10.3.1.938 does not yield a newer version. Every 10.3.1.xxxx OS I have installed downloads the driver at first boot. This file is newer than that one and does not throw errors.

    Yes, side load it.

    HOWEVER, it will NOT work on anything but the 10.3.1 branch. I'm pretty sure I pointed that out in the first post.

    When you say delete driver - from where do I delete it. Not clear on this from the phone or form the files listed in Sachesi? Please clarify I am very confused on this. Thanks

    Note that my new Passport, out of the box, grabbed the exFAT driver and does not have "file handle" issues..... is this where that driver came from?

    And yes, I have an exFAT 64Gb SD card in the phone.

    OK, I'm trying to understand what's going on.

    First, if you are running anything lower than 10.3.1.xxx for an OS, do NOT install this. Your device will not see the card, you will have to delete this new file using Sachesi and let the device re-download the version that BlackBerry is serving.

    Second, if you are running 10.3.1.xxx, this file can be side loaded without any need to delete anything first.

    As noted in post 21, I found this version in the nonworking 10.3.1.632 for STL100-1. I don't know whether BlackBerry has decided to serve a new driver, but the version my device grabbed yesterday morning was still the old one. I'm running Z30STA100-3/10.3.1.821.

    Thanks for the info. I didn't install as I am not on 3.1 as of yet. I had hoped there was some was to get the card to work on 3.0. I guess I have to wait for BlackBerry or upgrade to 3.1. In order to use the 64 gb card.

    Nope, you don't: just reformat your card to another format instead of exFAT.

    The issue that may crop up is Fat32 doesn't understand how to write to SD cards efficiently so you run the risk of destroying your SD card after a while.

    Ya got me there. I've never heard of that issue.

    Our fellow CB'er just needs to use the FAT32 format until 10.3.1 comes out officially. So I doubt the problem you've mentioned will crop up if he just uses that format for a few weeks.

    Oh it very well may, especially if that user runs his camera captures to the SD card.

    I strongly recommend not using anything other than exFAT on any SD card > 32Gb. Several people, myself included, have had the format destroyed (read: all data GONE!) by doing so and a few people have had the card physically damaged (the controller chip has gotten upset enough to refuse to work properly at all, essentially destroying the card.)

    If you only write to it ONCE and then NEVER do so again (read-only) you will probably get away with it, but IMHO it's simply not worth the risk if there's anything on that card you care about.

    Wasn't exFat available since 10.2.1?

    Yes... but there's a bug in 10.2 that means an exFAT card in a bb10 phone can't be read by windows when the phone is connected to the computer via USB.

    Here is a newer exFAT driver that is working far better than earlier versions. I have confirmed it does not throw "invalid handle" errors when accessing an exFAT SD card via PC.

    Note:

    You will have to side load this.

    Looks like this will only work on 10.3.1.x. It interferes with device access of card on earlier OSes.

    Enjoy.
    Have had NO issues with exFAT formated MicroSD card in Z30 using BB10 10.2.1x or 10.3.x (0/1) and no issues with Win 7 Enterprise 64-bit accessing it over USB, SD adapter (card format only not some USB key) ... in any way shape or form.

    I'm starting to think that I just have a bad SD card. I got the new SanDisk 128gb about two months ago when I heard that it could be supported now, and I've never been able to load more than about 4gb of data to it. I have formatted it in the Z10, (which runs with my 64gb card PERFECTLY by the way) and I have even tried to format it with Windows. Either way, after about 4gb of data, the transfer speed drops to a very low speed and data that WAS there starts to be erased to make room for the new. Starting to think it has nothing to do with the formatting, but the card itself. Running 10.3.0.1418 BTW.

    That's cool.

    Lots of other people have, as I'm sure you can see.
