it'll show up under /media/sdcard if you formatted it without a label, and you actually formatted it as fat32 and not exFAT.

Google for "fat32 format"  and use it to format your 64GB card.

It may be that your SD Card is using GPT and not MBR, you need to be MBR and Fat32 formatted, try reading link below:

But remember to only change the sd card and not your Hard drive, Sorry i can not be more help as i use Linux and not Windows.

And this may also help:

Hope one of these links help.
Lots of Handhelds but my favourite is still my GCW Zero and also RG-350, But the RG-300 is 2nd Best.
