Can't access SD Card

Post by rkramedjian » 23 Jun 2017, 16:19

Hello,

I finished my build and have been testing the systems. It appears that it is not recognizing my SD card when I try to navigate onto the sd card, but it sees that I have inserted the sd card.

Any diagnostic hints?

Hi Ron,

please try reformating the SDcard in fat32 and if that doesn' work try a diferent sd card, I've had some cards the board was unable to read for some reason.
Also check if both the cables that go to your lcd controler are correctly connected :)

Thanks. That gets me there. I was using a 64G card. Went down to a 32G card and now have access.

Nice to know :) I think that's a limitation of the 8bit chip that controls the motherboard for that much space you would need a 32bit processor and by then you would be better off printing through a raspberry pi :)
