I need to format my 64GB Micro SD Card in my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phone as Mac Journaled and have it readable on a Mac at startup just as if it's a USB stick.  How can I do this?  I've already been through below:

Mac - Doesn't see the phone nor the SD card even in Disk Utility.

Android File Transfer for Mac - Doesn't allow more than 4GB size file to be transferred at a time.

Windows Machine - Phone and SD card visible as hard drive devices but can only format in NTFS, not Mac Journaled.

Mac Drive Standard - Windows formatting software to format disks for Mac use.  Does not see SD card nor phone, only Windows machine factory hard drive internally.

I think you better take out the sd card and put it in the sd slot of your mac to format it. You may need an adapter to go from sd to micro sd.

The phone blocks the Mac from viewing the SD card as an external drive.  Bought a USB Micro SD Card reader and it was treated as a standard external hard drive and worked perfectly.  Thanks.
