D3/F3 FAT errors on new Super Everdrive x6
« on: April 18, 2021, 12:41 AM »
Hi,

Just wondering if anyone else has had issues with microsd cards and the new x6?

I've tried about 10 different SD cards of various brands/sizes, all formatted fat32 (including a working one I normally use in my Mega Everdrive Pro) and they are all giving me the same issue:

First boot I get a "ERROR:D3 Disk IO error [disk read error]"
After power off/on, I get "FAT F3" error.

I'm using the latest OS (1.05) which does say this in the changelog:

SNESOS-v1.05 31.03.2021
1) SD compatibility fix for X6

Perhaps this fix needs another look?  Just a thought.

Thanks

Yes, they are all FAT32.

I finally got one to work. Looks like it requires a card LARGER than 32GB (32GB did not work for me, but 64GB did).

So if anyone else is having issues, use at least a 64GB card, formatted to FAT32 using allocation unit size of 32768.

Cheers!
