    I installed a 128gb micro SD card in my passport and formatted it and it only shows 15mb of usable storage. I have done some research but haven't found a full answer just format it with exfat? How do I do that?

    Why won't the passport format it its self?

    What brand?

    Format it outside of the phone. Ext if you can, otherwise ntfs. I've had problems formatting sdcards in my phone before.

    On windows there are options to format.

    Format the card in your Windows PC. Place a text file or pdf etc onto the card. Remove from your PC and put it into the Passport. In Passport go to settings/storage and access/format media card/OK. Then you may want to reboot your Passport.

    Do you have the exFAT driver installed? It should be an automatic download once you insert an exFAT SD card into your Passport. I think you can check under storage settings, with an exFAT card installed.

    I'm not sure if BB10 can use NTFS. I think FAT32 is the backup, although getting Windows to format a >32GB card as FAT32 is tricky.

    I put the sd card back in my priv and formatted it as a separate drive not ''internal storage'' and put it back in the passport. FIXED good to go now!
