Bug Description

When I insert a 64GB SD card formatted with Ext4 I get an error notification that the card cannot be read (bug #1584353). The program 'SD Card Management' then offers to format the card.

Formatting the card appears to succeed, but the UI hangs indefinitely on the 'Formatting…' message. There does not appear to be a time-out or means of recovery.

Removing the card and closing the SD Card Management program seems to work, and the SD card is properly recognized upon reinsertion. The SD-card is now formatted as FAT32.

Device: Meizu Pro 5 (OTA-11)
SD-card: SanDisk Ultra 64GB Micro-SD (SDXC I)
