Formatting your SD card using NTFS allows you to play files that are larger than 4GB in size, but the player will not be able to receive network updates or generate logs. In other words, BrightSign players can read from NTFS formatted cards, but cannot write to them.
For Series 3 players (XTx43, XDx33, HDx23, LS423), we recommend using the exFAT filesystem (requires firmware version 6.2.94 or later). This allows you to play files larger than 4GB without restrictions on writing to the card.
If you are using an earlier player model and are publishing via BrightSign Network, Simple File Network, or Local File Network, you need to format your SD card using FAT32.
