Default 128GB microSD card or not?

I read the posts on how to get a 64GB microSD card working and have had no problems doing so, but I am a flac junkie and have run out of space already and was thinking of upgrading to a 128GB. Previous posts on the subject hinted that the new microSDs will not be physically compatible (and extra pin?) with the old types in the 128GB range. I was wondering if anyone had gotten one working or not?

There's no extra pin and the dimensions are the same. The directions for getting a 64 GB card should work.

I tried it once, with mp3s, and it essentially locks up with ~12000 tracks. I was thinking about switching over to flac, but the space penalty is higher than I'm willing to pay until we hit the 256GB+ mark.

I just tried this card in my J3 and it worked wonderfully. Straight out of the package, reformatted to fat32, filled it with files, dropped it into the J3 and it fired right up with no problems.

How many tracks/music file format on the card? My card worked fine, the J3 did not with that many songs up against the 8k limit in that slot.

Just put a 128 GB card in my 32 GB J3, works fine, have about 7000 flac files. Apart from a longer boot up time, no issues so far. The cards are now under 40 quid, so a bargain ....

The problem with the player is not primarily the card size, but the total file count you have on it and the internal storage. If that combined exceeds a certain amount, the player starts acting funny or lock up entirely.
