Incompatible SD Cards
« on: August 24, 2019, 04:46 PM »
Is there any sort of rhyme or reason to which SD cards work?  I tried 4 including
1)SanDisk Ultra 80MB/s SDHC I Class 10 32GB
2)PNY Performance SDHC Class 4 16GB
3)A second SanDisk Micro 16gb I can't find currently
The one that finally worked was
4)Off Brand G Skill SDHC I Class 10 32GB

This was pretty frustrating as a new Everdrive 64 owner and had me wondering if I had a defective unit.  Now that I've got things working I'm extraordinarily happy with it but that was a rocky start that seems like it should be ironed out on the front end by figuring out why certain cards don't work.

I’m coming across the same issue actually, how did you get it fixed ? Did you just copy the info to a different kind of card ?

I just kept trying new cards.  I spent a fair amount of time lurking on these boards and the replys generally seem to include the following advice
1) make sure you're formatting the card correctly
2) keep on trying different ones until you find one that works. 
Even people trying the exact same make/model seem to have varying results.  Fortunately, SD cards aren't particularly expensive and are generally useful.
