Nighthawk R7000 USB drive format exFAT not recognized

My USB drive format is exFAT and is not being recognized by the ReadyShare USB drives.  Is there any solutions to that other than reformating to NTFS?  Do you have any plan to support exFAT format since it's a widely used format that can be used across Windows and MacOS?  Thanks!

There is no support for exFAT and most likely never will be. The router runs an old kernel that needs heavy patching to support exFAT. Unlikely to be done

Routing: NETGEAR RAX43 - Firmware: V1.0.11.112 (1 Gbps down, 50 Mbps up)
Switching: 2x NETGEAR 8-ports (GS108v4) / 1x NETGEAR 16-ports (JGS516v2)
Desktop: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X - Server: Intel Core i7-7700K - NAS: Intel Pentium G4400, 16 TB
