If you ever wanted to put some large movie files over 4GB to your Android tablets including Galaxy Tab, Asus Transformer Prime, Sony Tablet, Toshiba Thrive, Kindle Fire, and Nook Tablet, you will find playback even recognition is a blue moon. The reasoning behind Android’s omission is that those android-based tablets only recognize SD cards formatted in FAT 32 which limits a single file size less than 4GB.
