My SDHC card don't work with my Everdrive v2.5
« on: February 23, 2019, 01:28 AM »
Hi,

Just got home my Everdrive v2.5 today, bought it from Everdrive.de, your reseller site.
And i got a SanDisk Extreme 90mb/s SDHC I (something with a 3 and class 10 i guess) 16gb. I've read all over the forums for the problem and people saying it's the sd card, but some people get it to work with those sd cards.

So if i buy a Kingston MicroSDHC/SDXC Class 10 (says nothing more on the card) with a MicroSD adapter, will that work?
SD cards are very hard to find here it seems. But i don't understand why some people get it to work.

I reformatted the sd card several times, both with windows standard and with 3rd party programs, but this last program i use i get a error:F0 or "fat wrong" or something like that. otherwise its the normal Error:F0 File not found. And i also tried download the winrar file to my desktop, and then copy the files to the SD card, does not help.

I got this 16 GigaByte SD card and it works perfectly for me.

SanDisk 16GB SDHC Class 4

Over 300 ROMs on mine and haven't had any issues whatsoever. Thanks to my EverDrive 2.5 I'm finally able to play the F-Zero X Expansion Kit which by itself justifies the price for me. Being able to play Super Smash Bros. mods like 19XXTE on top of that is gravy.  ;D

Try with as many different SD cards as you have lying around.
If you can, borrow some from friends/relatives (backup the contents first).
If you get one that works offer to swap it with the 16GB one you have.

EverDrives should probably come with an SD card that's known to work to help keep more customers satisfied.  ::)

Yep, I think the same. This problem is too much common.

I'd strongly prefer a more robust SD software stack to that solution.

What's the point of going with commodity removable storage if it's not properly supported? Just sell the ED with non-removable internal storage.

A good quality control measure would probably be to include an SD card with every EverDrive 64 that has the latest OS and has been thoroughly tested. That way people who purchase would only need to add their ROMs.
