In case any of you were still wondering considering the various amounts of conflicting literature out there over the past few weeks, I can confirm that at the very least, a class 10 64GB SanDisk microSDXC is functioning perfectly with my 810...and it is very fast (no camera lag as I read might be occurring in another post)

I can also confirm that it works, but I am having a pretty serious problem and wonder if it is a card problem or a phone problem. Specifically, if I am saving to the card and do anything else with the phone, I hacpve some very stern agree behavior. It will get stuck in the save process. I will then not be able to get to my settings screen. To fix things, I need to pull the battery, pull out the memory card, stick the memory card into my computer and scan/fix it before putting it back into the phone. If I don't scan/fix it first, the phone will work fine but won't see the card. It is a sandisk 64 class 10 card. Card problem? Or phone problem?

Thanks. I'll try the reformat and see if that fixes it. IMF not, it's back to Amazon with that silly card. It's driving me nuts! At least I've gotten pretty good at popping the back cover off LOL.
update: a reformat in the phone didn't work Netherlands phone is still framing/ crashing with the memory card. I plan on picking up a small card today and testing it out before sending this one back, just to make sure it's not a problem with the phone.
update 2: tried a different card and it works fine - no more lockups! The original 64gb card is headed back to Amazon.

gfiz, Is this the same card you used?
Amazon.com: SanDisk Ultra 64 GB MicroSDXC Class 10 UHS-1 Memory Card with Adapter (SDSDQU-064G-AFFP-A): Electronics
I just bought one at the killer price of $38.99

FYI, you can use a Class 4 micro SD, but it's painfully slow for writing photos and video. Also, I occasionally get an error when trying to read an MP3 (usually the first MP3 in a playlist, but subsequent files open fine, or if I hit the back button it will play).
I'm going to wait till blackFriday or cyberMonday to place an order for the SanDisk 64gb microSD. Hopefully there will be a deal, but I always wonder which day will have the better prices (blackFriday or cyberMonday).

Arrrghhh. I received my 64GB SanDisk (SDSDQUA-064G-A11A) and it doesn't work properly. Yes, the phone sees the card, I can read/write to the card, but the card is to slow.
How to duplicate: Record a video to the card, 20 seconds of moving the phone around so it's not a static picture. Then replay the video, it stutters, stalls, and sometimes just quits before the end of the 20 seconds (720p or 1080p). I did a "quick" and "long" format of the card (exFAT), no go. Formatted the card with the phone, no go. I even deleted and recreated the partition on the card, again doing a "quick" and "long" format, no go.
To verify that it's the write speed was the issue, I did copy the video off the phone and played it on my computer (which is more than powerful enough to play 1080p video). The playback was identical to the phone playback, hence the phone couldn't write the file properly.
I even went back to the Microsoft store to see if they could help diagnose it. They were EXTREMELY helpful, they pulled out another phone from stock and we tested the SD card on it, same issue. They even pulled a SD card (32GB Kingston) off the shelf and we tested it in both phones, then it worked.
So I would HIGHLY recommend that as soon as you get an SD card, the first thing to do is try recording video to the SD card in both 720p and 1080p. Make sure playback is smooth and without any issues (report back here if you can).
Now I get to return the SD card :(

You're right about the playback issues. Mine wasn't smooth at all. Although it didn't crash the SD card. I've had before taking photos too fast and had to reset card. Going to return it for a 32gb card. 64 GB might be pushing it.

So it works for some people, but not for all.... Could it be a problem with the phone? For example, the need for a firmware update? I'm planning to buy an 810 soon (my first WP8), but the ability to use a 64Gb SD Card is paramount to me! The phone would be quasi-useless if it coudn't read my music off a 64Gb SD Card.
Maybe I should go with the Lumia 510 just in case...

Class 4 for that camera is perfectly fine, you need a class 10 for shooting with high MP cameras and sequential shooting (fps) @ maximum speed.
With my Olympus Pen 16.1 MP and single shots I hardly notice a difference between a 4 and a 10 and with the 8 MP you're not shooting at 5 or 10 fps.
The closest to sequential shooting is with Smart Shoot and that's about 1 frame per second and I tried a class 10 and it was still 1 frame per second.
First picture with a class 4 there is lag time but with a class 10 there is still lag time with the first picture, if it's faster it's still slow.

810 is a crapshoot with an SD card. I've tried 3.
Music for mine is a total disaster. I carry an iPod around. I've tried every solution, every possible thing. For some of us, it just doesn't work.
You could always get the phone, try a card and if it doesn't work, send it back.
But, my recommendation is not to get an 810 if you plan to use an SD card for music.
