The ultra gets too hot
Trust me, you want NTFS, not exFAT. Yea the exFAT format can store files larger than 4GB. HOWEVER the USB device's internal chip can still be permanently locked up if you use the "move" command on a file greater than 4GB. NTFS avoids this issue. They only pre-format as FAT because NTFS doesn't work on Mac.

I know from experience, it happened to me. If you google "sandisk read only" you'll see it online. If you search the Amazon reviews you'll see it mentioned there. http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer...4QBVRC5H3/ If you ask SanDisk they will tell you it's true also. http://forums.sandisk.com/t5/All-...218/page/2
This is why you format it exFAT. No file size limitations.

just got this to replace my dvr storage so it's more portable and easy to watch on the go. it's the "new" version up to 150MBps. I haven't had any issues with my older 64gb one so im giving this one a shot. hope it can stand up to the writes, if not, then it's not a huge loss.

PSA: Manually reformat as NTFS the moment you get it.

Leaving it in any form of FAT, can result in permanently locking up the USB device if you do a "move" command, on any file over 4 gigabytes. It happened to me on the 128GB, and even reformatting won't fix it.

Did not know this. Learn something new everyday! Thanks. What about between Windows and Mac? Have to do exFAT since Mac can't write to NTFS?

There's a command line that allows ntfs write on Mac. Tuxera can do it too but it's paid software

But I feel like exF is easier for inter-OS

I see what the dude is saying about NTFS, but I also agree with you that exFAT is much easier for PC <---> Mac. I go back and forth all of the time, exFAT has been perfect. Big Grin

Does the Samsung one run hot or same as Sandisk? Yeah, someone was joking about people coming in complaining about Sandisk being hot and all.

Thanks in advance if you know the answer.
