BTW, if i understand this thread correctly, once i use this card, in the storage settings within android, it will only show around 32gb for capacity?

That depends on the size of the partition you're currently using on the card. If its a 64Gb card but has only one 32Gb partition then the size of the card is going to be 32Gb. 

Most linux cards are going to have two partitions at a minimum... one for /boot and one for /  (the root partition).

When the resize_rootfs.sh script is run the / root partition is expanded to use the entire free space of the card. Apparently the script does not exist for droid ?
