    So basically found out that the sdcard in the S4 is formatted in FAT32 format. Does any one know if the card is formatted in NTFS, will it be recognizable? Thanks

    You would need a custom kernel with NTFS support for it to work. Otherwise only fat32 is supported.

    Correct. All manufacturers use fat32 only. So an external micro SD won't be read if its NTFS.
