What is the best and most reliable way to format the SDs for the Mavic Air, a 64G and 32G card, so it is most compatible?
My current 64G SD card is exFAT, and 32G SD card is FAT32.

What software should I use to format the cards, and the internal memory.
Should I use Windows? and what parameters?
Should I use the SD Card Formatter 5.0.1, from the SD Association? I don't think it lets you pick parameters.

Simply use the format option in the DJI Go4 app or format it in your computer using the default settings.
And despite what some may say, it really doesn't matter whether you do it in the computer or the drone.
 
After transferring the files to my PC I always format as exFAT using windows formatting tool, simply right click on the card in devices & drives then choose format.

What options do you choose...allocation units?
