What micro sd card for the gba everdrive
« on: April 04, 2020, 12:31 AM »
What micro sd card is recommended for the everdrive gba? I’ve found only old threads at least 2 years old discussing. Has the issue been fixed and all brands and sizes work?

It says up to 64 GB so I think any quality SDHC or SDXC up to 64 GB should work. Knockoffs usually doesn't work so buy from a reliable source.
I use Sandisk Ultra 32GB.

Format the card to FAT32 with 32kB cluster size. Don't use the quick format option if it's the first time you format the card (the factory formatting might have been a quick one). After that it's ok.

Sure it says that. I just know according to some older threads there were issues with various cards and sizes.

I've been using a 128GB one for years now and fitted all available emulator games it can run including the GBA set the card in mention is a silver/red 128GB Sandisc Ultra 1A Micro SDXC after formatting it to FAT 32 and have had no issues with it despite the wear and tear it got from almost finalizing a way to play SNES games on a GBA fixing stuff and the such... it had room to spare too even after all stuff was added to it.

People always have problems with SD cards on flashcarts. A list of known working brands helps a bit. But there are also lots of fake cards that don't work.
