FAT system not found

I have all of the ROMS and the ED64 folder on my SD card, put it in and I get this message:

EverDrive-64 bootloader v4
ERROR: FA

FAT system not found

That happens to me too sometimes. I think it's to do with the contacts of the SD card or the slot being dirty. I brush the contacts of the SD card and that usually fixes it. Unless you getting the message every time, I don't know what to tell you.

EverDrive 64 V 2.5 is fresh out of the mail today and the SD card looks almost mint, I'll dig around and see if I botched something, but I dunno.... :'(

An update just in case anyone in the future runs in to this problem, I did some Detective Columbo work and realized I needed to format the SD card to FAT32. So I am very happy that my $150 paper weight now plays 400 N64 games instead, I will celebrate with some beer and WCW/nWo Revenge!  8)

I mean, that's what it blatantly says on the features page:

FAT16/FAT32 support. Unlimited partition size for FAT32
Although it should clarify that it only uses FAT32.

64GB SD cards and higher capacity comes pre formatted to ExFAT and Windows built-in formatter don't have FAT32 as a format option.

Thankfully third party apps allows it to be formatted into FAT32.
