Out of interest, does the Raspberry-Pi work with new 64GB SDXC cards? I should expect it works fine with SDHC cards up to 32GB.

If it does, I can probably dispense with the NAS drive as my main music server storage, ergo less power usage!

If I"m not mistaken, the current SDXC Cards (or at least some of them) are just "SDXC in name only", and actually comply with Version 3.0 of the SD standard – the same as SDHC. The only caveat is that they come formatted as exFAT, which can only be used on Microsoft Windows. You should be able to format them to something usable with Linux, though. There"s a bit more about this here (my apologies for it being a Wikipedia link – it is a decent enough quick overview, though).

Obviously, this won"t apply to Version 4.0 SDXC Cards, which I gather are physically and electrically different. :P

Read the Wiki for the cards that are so far known to work.

Actually I had it on Ubuntu a good while back. I don't know if it's still under development but given that I know very little about Linux and was able to follow directions to mount and use the USB drive that's saying a lot..

If you don't want to follow the link; yes all 8 SDXC cards tested work.

exFAT works fine on OSX, W7-8, and Linux. Windows XP has troubles with exFAT and a lot of businesses have not moved from XP to linux yet. :)

Looks like they moved that page here (and several 128g cards are supported now):
