The higher capacity cards (64GB and up ) are SDXC cards and come with the exFAT file system on them which the stream does not support. Therefore, you will not be able to put one of these in the stream and get anything other than an error message.

If it does no worries if it does not then do the option to format the HD card. Whether or not it works with the apple unit I do not know. I suspect it should.

You just have to make sure that you format these cards using the Stream's format utility accessed via the 7 key. Ignore any error messages you get from the stream before the card is formatted. The format takes less than a minute and the card will contain the FAT32 file system after formatting and should work swimmingly.
