@budafilms I just packed up everything for a move tomorrow, but after I get settled in I'll give it a try and report

I don't know what the problem is. I can't reproduce it.

Inserted a 8 GB SD-card into my Hackintosh (running 10.11.6) and run Disk Utility. Formated card with ExFAT. Inserted card into cam (650D): No problem. Copied ML files to card and installed ML via Firmware update option.
Configured MLV_REC to write with 35.4 MByte/s to ExFAT and stopped after 3:00. File size is 6,716,211,808 Bytes.

What are we talking about? As far as I can tell dratif haven't used ExFAT at all.

Thanks Walter Schulz for your procrastination- I have been using exFat for several months now and only recently when updated to Kapitan faced this problem. And without reading this thread have been formatting exFat through Windows.

Being rude to newcomers is really isn't necessary. Least we expect from Heroes.  :)

This is only a data point - but I had no luck changing a card's format to exFAT if it was first formatted in camera. But if I just selected the card (not its partition) in Disk Utility and chose Erase, exFAT, and MBR, the result seems to work just fine in my 5D3 running last night's nightly ML.

I'm on OS X 10.11.5, FWIW.

Anyone tried macOS sierra yet? Does it have the same problem when formating to exfat in disc utility?

No problem with Sierra.

Connect the card.
Open Disk Utilities.
Go to ERASE.
Select Format > Exfat and Scheme > Master Boot Record

Do nice videos ;)
