Description of Issue

I’m going to transfer my music from i-Tunes (now called “Music”) in a Mac Studio to a new Samsung T7 that came with factory format of ExFAT. Will that work well with the Nucleus, or should I reformat the T7?

exFAT is the best choice (at least if you’re not already paying for a proper ext4fs file system driver on your macOS). Stay away from NTFS.
