I have an Raspberry Pi+ that I bought to use as a music server. Initially I tried using a 64gb micro SD card (San Disk Ultra 64 GB Class 10) as a storage medium but that didn't work, so I used an 8gb micro SD card instead, which allowed me to install Raspbian and generally mess around with RPI. I'm powering it off a Pimoroni PiHub using the LAN port. It's a nice system.
However, I keep coming back to the fact that my music collection only takes up 40gb and that I should have enough room on that 64gb card to run something like OpenElec AND store all my music. To that end I have bought a PiDAC+.
The question is, how do I use the 64gb card as a boot device for a good music player (OpenElec?) and/or whatever distro I choose?
EDIT Can I get around the apparent inability of my RPI to boot using the 64gb SD by reformatting the SD in a different file system, such as ex4 or exFAT instead of FAT32? Or should I be partitioning first? (NB I am a Linux newbie.)
OR Should I keep the existing 8gb card as boot device and add the 64gb in a micro card reader?
