Mcx8k not reading FatEx

Is there a reason that when I put a stick in that’s been formatted to FatEx the machine comes up with “unsupported” I thought the machine was meant to read both FatEx and Fat32

Hi! Happy to help!

The MCX8000 supports FAT32, FAT16 and HFS+ (Mac Journalized), but not exFAT.

Let me know if you have any more questions!

HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool is the go-to tool to format usb-sticks if you want to be sure they work. Don’t ask me what it does different than native OS formatting, but it has bailed me out at several occassions, making readable sticks out of ones that looked bricked.
