Regarding the external SD card:

Your device accepts memory cards with maximum capacities depending on the memory card manufacturer and type.
Some memory cards may not be compatible with your device.

Some memory cards may not be fully compatible with the device. Using an incompatible card may damage the device or the memory card, or corrupt the data stored in it.

The device supports only the FAT file system for memory cards. When inserting a card formatted in a different file system, the device will ask you to reformat the memory card. Ensure any files you have on the card are “backed up” before proceeding.
