It probably needs to be formatted either using FAT32 or using EXT2/3/4. Most likely it is now using exFAT, and android usually can't read exFAT partitions.

You can try formatting but the firmware is really only designed to support 32GB so you're doing well to get the 64GB card working - do you actually have more than 32GB of data that can be read by the phone on there?

According to this

32 GB is the SD card limit.
==========================================================
You could connect your existing 128 gb micro sd card to this device
(Using a standard SD adapter, which you probably already have)

Pop in your pocket and stream the videos through secured WiFi to your phone.
I have one and it works well.

I also has a USB slot for any size flashdrive / external disk

Zoombits is a reliable company - I've bought from them many times.

EDIT: Sorry ... The max sd card size is 64 gig .... use usb for 128 gb

Boot the PC using the PCRepix LiveDVD, then start GParted, and there you can easily format it using the file-system you want:
