Exfat in Linux
I have a pair of lovely 128GB SD cards. Of course, their filesystem isn't the usual FAT or vFAT because of how big they are - it is, in fact, exFAT, for which my linux distro (Linux Mint 14) didn't come with support. Thankfully, it's super easy to get it to work:
UPDATE 8/9/14: Mint 16 is even simpler.
sudo apt-get install exfat-utils exfat-fuse
Left for posterity for old systems:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:relan/exfat
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install fuse-exfat
And that worked, plug-and-play, with no further setup.
