I just got this camera and was kinda scared about the 128GB compatibility, I got the Netac 128 GB and performed a full format, updated the camera to 1.4 and  i was able to record the whole time until the battery died twice with no errors. card was 46.99, not the best speed but plenty for this camera.

I got a SanDisk extreme pro card and it's not detected, this is a recommended sd card. Tried full formatting to FAT and exFAT, still does not detected by camera. Can anyone please suggest an allocation unit size to full format please.

I can confirm SanDisk extreme pro 64GB does not work with this camera (firmware 1.3.3 or 1.4.0). Xiaomi should test this cards before they recomend them.

Hi,
I upgrade my yi to 1.4.0 (before I have upgrade 1.0.7 Chinese firmware to 1.3.3 English version) and now with "SD CARD ERROR" get new - "ILLEGAL VERSION", 64gb Sandisk extreme. But on 1.4.0 I see new behavior - first power is corrected with out any sd card errors, then if I turn off and immediately turn on YI I get SDCARD error. Workaround - don't touch camera for one-five minutes and then turn on. It will work. But ILLEGAL VERSION is really problem..

I figured out why some sd cards don't work:

https://github.com/irungentoo/Xiaomi_Yi_4k_Camera/tree/master/sdcard_fix

It's a bug with the firmware. I was able to patch the firmware to get my lexar 633x 128GB working.

Are you sure that my card SanDisk will be authorized on your firmware to work?
