Problem making SD card

I've tried 32GB images of Android, RemixOS, and OpenHab, and none will fit on the 32GB SanDisk Ultra microSD cards I have. I'm using 16GB images, as a result. Are issues with Google Play due to that, I wonder?


Since I can't find a way to convert IMG to ZIP, I have no way to trim the fat myself. There's a web site that claims to be able to do it in the cloud, but none of my cloud accounts has 32GB of space.

I don't think zipping the image will help. You need an image file, not a zip file. Zip is just a form of file compression that allows you to shrink the file size down, for ease of storage and transfer. Most files need to be unzipped again before they can actually be used.
