My friend was able to use a 128GB card after formatting it on a PC first as a FAT partition.

I seem to recall seeing that a 256GB card is the max. Any card must be in FAT32 format which is most easily done in the interface after inserting the card.

For more information on using a micro SD card with your Arlo Ultra, take a look here: How do I record 4K videos to a microSD card?

Re: Arlo Ultra SD Card

I bought the 1 camera kit as an extra camera to go with my 4 camera set. The SD card goes in the smart hub. I think I've read that the 32GB is the highest recommended. I used the 64GB and formatted the card using the Arlo app on my phone. Go to the Settings, then to My Devices, then tap your hub name. Scroll down and go to Storage Settings. Go ahead and insert the card into your hub, but do it slowly and the Format SD Card in red will pop up as the card is detected in the hub before it is completely inserted. Tap on it, and make sure it's a fresh/clean/new SD card because it will erase it once it has been formatted. Once the card has been formatted, the SD Card Status will read/say GOOD, and you're done.

I know 128GB cards have been successfully used and maybe 256GB ones. There's frequently little need for such large cards unless you're doing a lot of recording and/or want very long time periods to be locally recorded.

Confirmed working with a 256 GB card.  nothing special to be done, just insert and format in app as normal.  Specific model for reference.  SanDisk Ultra Plus 256GB, UHS-1,V10 (SDSQUSI-256G-ANCMA)

Whouuuu whouuuu Whoummmm .... grrrrrrr


You would have to be precise in your answers and not to make jokes ... Please, do not answer without knowing and do the sorcerer's apprentice! re-grrrrrrr ! A little professionalime, good heavens!

What is the maximum number of GB accepted by the hub, 1TB, 5TB, 200TB, 1500TB? (Lol)


Then, and so, an SD card class10, U3, V90, that's it? OKAY?

So what would be the brands of manufacturers that have this type of SD card with these features?
If so, which brand and which reference? thanks in advance ...
