Windows is probably formatting the 128GB card as exFAT, which most 3D printer firmware cannot handle. It is possible to format 128GB cards as FAT32, but the standard Windows formatting utility won't do it. You could try formatting the card using SD Memory Card Formatter, but there is no guarantee that the printer firmware will accept the non-standard cluster sizes that FAT32 partitions bigger than 32GB use.
I had this problem too. The answer was to use the Official SD Card Formatter to format the SD card, then add your roms in the correct folder.
Try using the official sd card format tool from sdcard.org.
Here is the link to the download page.
This is the recommended tool from Nintendo. It properly formats the secure partition, which isn’t always correct if used with other OSes or off brands of cards.
Card might be defective or you need for format it using something better than the built in tools in the OS - try https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/ and if that doesn’t work, try a low level format using https://hddguru.com/software/HDD-LLF-Low-Level-Format-Tool/ - if neither of them work the card is likely defective. Good luck
I would take a closer look at your SD cards. Unless you must use the built-in format utility in the quad, I would recommend the "SD Card Formatter 5.0.1 by Tuxera". It's a free utility that is officially endorsed by the SD Association. I've been using it for ten years. It has solved so many SD card issues. I don't know exactly what it does differently, but it usually solves the problem for me.
I would second running a speed test on the sd card.
Class 10 only covers sequential read/write speeds but emulators are more sensitive to random read/write performance. An A1 card is what you ought to be looking for.
If this is a card that you've had for a while, it's possible that you might be dealing with the affects of garbage collection. If that's the case, format the card using the SD Card Formatter.
often, micro sd cards set themselves to write only mode when they are about to die. try to format it in your PC, fat 32, using this tool : https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/ if you get any write protect errors there is a good chance your card is dead. fat32 can't handle files over 4gb but i dont think you should have an issue with that, just something to consider.
Try a full (not quick) reformat of the card using: SD Memory Card Formatter. Then reformat the cards to FAT32 using Guiformat2.
Make sure you use an actual SD card formatter (https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/) and not the built in Windows or MacOS tools as they didn't seem to work for me when I upgraded my cameras to support RTSP.
How to Clean a Flash Drive, SD Card, or Internal Drive to Fix Partition and Capacity Problems
Or use this - https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/
There’s instructions here on how to update the firmware: https://support.empresseffects.com/support/solutions/articles/1000275389-updating-firmware-on-the-zoia-latest-version-1-13-
You need to format the SD card as FAT32. The link above has another link to a card formatter you can use to do so. There is a downloadable manual for the formatter program on this website as well. That should get you sorted back out: https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/
+1 and DO NOT format SD cards with any os format utility, it might lead to weird bugs that make you ponder for days, but it's just your SD card that was not properly formated
Use this software to do so : https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/
The SD card should be U3 actually and be formatted with ExFAT. Sandisk and Samsung work fine here - cheaper Transcend U3 cards also. I have 3 x 128 GB and one 64GB. Even with all being U3 (means it’s rated at 30 MB/s) I had stops when recording was too slow. The Osmo Action seems even more picky.
You may also try the official SD Association formatter - he have a slow "overwrite" option to really clean the card: https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/
It’s actually fine to do on Mac just don’t do it with Disk Utility. You need to use the SD card associations utility to preserve the protected space:
I had this same problem with my 3700x and a brand new Carbon motherboard. I flashed it a dozen times via USB, and each time I watched the red LED flash for a couple minutes and it seemed like it flashed correctly, but it would never boot. What fixed it? Reformatting my USB drive with a proper utility, such as this: https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/eula_windows/index.html. I know it says SD card but it does USB drives too.
First, make sure the destination sd card had the right size. Then try formatting the destination sd card with the official sd card formatter.
You can use this program to format sd cards that Windows won't format properly. Just FYI for any future projects.
That said, I strongly agree with the suggestion to move to an SSD. When I was on an sdcard I had similar experiences to yours though I found that if I waited a couple hours it would complete the update even though it would be unresponsive and/or "fail" to update during that time. But an SSD upgrade was an all-around improvement to boot times, updates, responsiveness, performance, really just everything so totally worth it. Get a 120GB or 250GB SSD. They are cheap and HA doesn't need a ton of storage but it will be a significant improvement to performance over something like an sdcard or flash drive.
I'd take microSD card out from flashcard, put it into computer, copied all the data from microSD card somwhere as a backup (IMPORTANT!), then:
install official SD Card Formatter: https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/
use it to format your microSD card with option "overwrite format" (instead of "quick format") selected, it may or may not show errors on microSD card
copy all your backuped files back on microSD card
put it into flashcard and check result, if it works ok now
Sounds like an adapter fail.
Also in the future, please don't bother with anything aside from this formatter tool for SD Cards. I know this won't help for cards over 32GB if you want FAT32 formatting, but if you want to properly have memory formatted in the scheme intended by the actual makers and specification authority, use this for all your card formatting in the future if you want to rule out format related issues.
I don't know what you could do to save the data tbh if nothing is being displayed on the windows explorer. Sorry I couldn't help there.
Have you tried formatting the SD card with this tool?
I had the same problem and using that tool to format the card worked for me. Turns out I had used my cards for other devices, and just formatting them in Windows didn’t work for the FXPak Pro.
there is an application called "SD Card Formatter" that will format your card to the FAT32 and SD standard that is suggested for most devices that utilize SD card interfaces, and it's available from the SD Associations website:
try with that first, it may make it easier for you.
This message is displayed, if the device can not find a proper boot sector. Most likely, your card is corrupt. Sometimes it helps to format the card with the official SD Formatter. Make sure to activate the Overwrite Format toggle.
Sometimes when memory cards fail, they fail to write protected. This way you can recover your data before there is further corruption. Sometimes the card will look and act like you are modifying the data, but after you remove the card and put it back in, the data will still be in the previous state. This only happens sometimes though, most of the time when memory cards fail, they will just be dead or unformatable.
Use this tool to test your card by doing a full format. https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/
The card might be too big, in which case you can always create a 16GB partition, and use that. Another thing that can put a spanner in the works is if the volume headers are GPT (GUID Partition Table), instead of MBR (Master Boot Record). Try formatting the card with SD Memory Card Formatter.
this is usually an issue with the partitioning table...
You can use this to wipe your USB drive (special 'fancy' tool), then copy stuff over and try again... usually does the trick, lest it be a compatibility issue... but that's unlikely.
I have no practical experience with the Ender 3 series, but have you tried using another SD card to flash the firmware? Use a brand-name card with a capacity no greater than 32GB, and make sure that it is formatted as FAT32. SD Memory Card Formatter is a useful tool for this purpose.
SD cards should be formatted as FAT32 (or FAT16) for most printers. Also, the volume header should be MBR (not GPT). SD Memory Card Formatter is a useful formatting utility.
Make sure your sd card is formatted to fat32 instead of exfat. Windows disk part and the GUI partition manager won't do that. Use a tool from Linux like gparted, or this on Windows. You're on your own for osx. Shoot me a dm if that doesn't work :)
Hm, that rings a bell, I think I might have had issues with an SD card that previously been used to boot a Raspberry Pi from. I can't remember if I resolved it by switching to a different SD card or whether using the SD Memory Card Formatter and using that to reset the size of the card fixed the issue, sorry. :( As far as I recall it does need to be FAT32, too, not FAT16.
Do you have another SD card to try with?
If it's the card that came with the printer they are junk. Mine died quickly and was replaced. You can use up to a 32GB card, they do have to be formatted FAT32. Use the software provided by the sd card association if possible.
Format the card with SDFormatter. Perform the full overwrite, not the quick format. After SDFormatter, format again in the dash camera.
What firmware are you on?
I've had to use this program on my windows 10 PC to bring them back to life.
As long as it's a quality sdcard and not the ones that ship with rg350 it should work.
Your SD card may be corrupt. The SD cards supplied with Chinese printers are known to be rubbish. Try another card, but make sure that it is not high-capacity (no higher than 32GB). Format it as FAT32 using SD Memory Card Formatter.
What if you tried to format the SD card in your macbook before trying to format it in the camera? I use a tool something like this but on a windows machine so I can't really guide you on MacOS :P
Apparently you should be able to use a 32GB SDHC card, you just gotta get the firmware update going
Are you printing from an SD card? If so, it may be faulty, causing the print to end prematurely. The cards provided with Chinese printers are usually junk. Get a decent card and format it with the SD Memory Card Formatter.
absolute best card format tool out there for fat32 which is likely what that SD should be is SD card formatter.
its a tool made by the people who invented the SD card.https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/index.html
I have recovered many SD with this. if this does not work then its probably the machine. Especially since you have a working SD card.
I've used this feature literally hundreds of times. (I'm terrible and need to have a save state to complete many levels) It even works with SG-1000 games. Like most problems, you probably have an SD card issue. Be sure to use SD card formatter 5.0.1 and then copy everything back over. You also might have a bad rom. Many Game Gear ROMs were made the 1990s and can be funky. You might try a different ROM of the same game. Make sure you have the SMSSYS folder in the root directory of the micro SD card.
I do agree that Wyze should tell people when something went wrong, like can't be able to write to microSD card, and to log power failures and such, but, that seems to be way down their priority list to implement.
As for your microSD card, if this utility (free) https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/ doesn't work on the card, then the card is toast, and you need a new one. I doubt it is the cam, since it worked before...
Try formatting the sd card with this program (do an overwrite format): https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/. And use this kernel instead of the official crappy one: https://gbatemp.net/threads/retrogamefan-updates-releases.267243/. Copy the R4i-sdhc folder to your newly-formatted sd card
Format the microSD card with this https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/
I also doubt the cams are bricked, there is something odd going on though, lots of people have had their microSD cards bricked, and the size doesn't make a difference, or the brand, it can happen on known good cards as well.
What causes this, no idea, seems to be some kind of a electrical issue, maybe a spike, but who knows.
No. Manufacturer's SD cards usually just contain documentation and test prints.
You will need to format the SD card as FAT32. This is best done using SD Memory Card Formatter, rather than your PC's format utility. The maximum size for a FAT32 partition is 32GB, so there is no point in getting an SD card with a higher capacity.
try a restart of the camera after you insert it (either from advanced menu in app or just power it down and back up)
One thing to try is to format the card on the pc using the official sd card formatter:
You can also try using another micro sd card you might have to see if the card is bad (but usually the cards are not bad).
But if you find that it still won't see the card you might have bad card reader in the cam (I had one, seems there was a bad batch)... if that is the case let wyze support know and they will send you out a replacement.
generally here is what I would do:
1: pull out the sd cards and make sure the cameras on are on the latest firmware (select camera, settings sprocket, device info, "check update" next to firmware version)
2: format the card(s) in another device (pc, mac, etc, some recommend using the official sd card formatter but I tend to just use the built in format command on windows)
now you can start testing... if they seem fine good... maybe older firmware with card problems was the issue, maybe older firmware corrupted the format on the sd card, etc... maybe the cards were just badly formated from the start....
if it still happens:
you either have bad camera card readers (it happens), bad cards (i suppose its possible), or both
to test if the card readers are the issue use *any other* sd cards and see if they work fine... if they do try those cards in the pc to see if they work fine... if they don't work in the pc and "other" cards work fine in the camera do a warranty replacement on the cards
if *any other cards* also fail in the cameras and the cards seem fine it is likely the card reader in the cameras... do a warranty replacement on the cameras
and of course if *any other cards* fail and the cards fail on other devices to replacements for the cameras and the cards.
if your firmware isn't up to date that will likely fix the issue... there were a *LOT* of sd card issues being brought up in here a few firmwares back .. and it could just be a bad card reader on the cams, seems to be a few of those (I even had one).
also the card might just need a low level format and start working, so one thing to try at the start is to format it on pc or mac or whatever (fat32) then pop it back in the cam
I have seen the official sd formatter recommended many times might be worth a shit, but I tend to just use the windows format when dealing with cards in general.
Go to SDcard.org and download the official format tool. Use it to format the card and try again.
Here is a link to the official card format software.
Have you tried another card? Have you tried formatting the card first with the formatting tool provided by the SD association? https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/
I've been having the same trouble you're describing with other ras pi images - even the rasbian strecth image linked from the raspi official website. Apparently the Pi has gotten more picky over the years about what cards it will play nicely with. I've been using samsung evo 32gb cards with good success. Almost all other cards I've tried have failed.
Also, I haven't had a whole lot of luck editing things on the card from my PC. Plug it in and let it pull a DHCP address. Look in your router dhcp table and grab the most recently added IP and use WinSCP or Putty to get to it from there. Alternatively, plug in a monitor and keyboard.
Best of luck. Been fighting with the Pi 3bs since I started buying them nearly a year ago. When they work properly, they're great.
did you try formaatting it in the PC or psp , if pc , do it in psp and if psp try doing it in pc . if that don't work try
https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/ or other type of software
Normally, when strange errors happen with the microSD card, I format them with https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/ and not using the App.
Also, pop the microSD card into a computer, and see if there are any files there, if so, play them with VLC (free) and see if they are OK.
That said, I would swap the working cam with one of the other ones, and see if it works OK or not.
Get the SD Card Formatter - https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/
Then reflash your image. Just FYI some images that are fine on the 3b+ won't work on the zero W. The Zero series uses an arm6 processor and the 3b+ uses an arm7. Code isn't compatible. Had that issue but not the locking issue.
HC cards will work, but it seems like the luck of the draw. My current one is a Kingston 8GB. But my primary MiniD is one of the batch 1 models, still on the original firmware with no mods except terminal connectors for the print bed to make it easy to remove for changing the Kapton tape.
OP: you can find the "official" SD card formatter from https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/ a lot of printer users have better luck with it. Or, optionally do a format with 4k cluster size.
How big is your SD? Make sure it's 32GB or smaller unless you're tech savvy.
Download that and use it to format your SD.
Then, use the Lazy Installer to put the latest TWM on your SD.
That should get you working, if the SD is your issue.
The latest release version of CF (6.1) does use the SD card for storing the progress of prints. From experience, I don't trust ANY SD cards to be 100% reliable so I use the SD Card Formatter (https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/) anytime I suspect a possible SD card issue. I am also looking at configuring Octoprint to use the printer's SD card for storage and printing so that the resume feature will work. I believe I saw this as an option the last time I was poking around it's configuration.
I would format the card with SDFormatter. Perform the full overwrite, not the quick format. After SDFormatter, place back in the camera and format again.
FYI, there are some users who claim they are using 512GB cards in some of the Viofo cameras without issue.
I doubt this Pocket firmware update will address the Ez Flash Junior issues on Firmware 4, as it doesn't do anything for the Everdrive GB carts either.
That said, you can still get firmware 5 which allows the EZ Flash Jr to work on the Pocket; just make sure to use a decent quality SD card and properly format it before doing the update on the EZ Flash Jr. Using The official SD association's formatter tool might be a good idea. Firmware 5 can supposedly brick either your SD card or your cartridge if the SD card is not formatted correctly or the read speed isn't good enough, which is why it was 'pulled'.
This guide, posted a couple of weeks ago has the download link for firmware 5 as well as instructions for setting up the SD card correctly for the EZ Flash Jr.
SanDisk Ultra cards are not a good choice in any dash camera. They can be unreliable. The SanDisk High Endurance cards work well in dash cameras as does the Samsung Endurance Pro. The Samsung EVO Select and EVO Plus are good non-endurance choices. Avoid Lexar.
Until you get a new card, I would format your current card with SDFormatter. Perform the full overwrite, not the quick format. After SDFormatter, place back in the camera and format again in the camera.
Yeah, usually a card issue. If it's 6-7 years old, I would just get a new one. The SanDisk High Endurance cards work well in the Viofos. The Samsung Endurance Pro, Samsung EVO Select and EVO Plus work well too. Avoid the SaDisk Ultra cards and all Lexar cards.
Whichever card you get, just be sure to format it in the camera once every month or two.
Until you get a new card, you can try formatting your current card with SDFormatter. Perform the full overwrite, not the quick format. After SDFormatter, format again in the camera.
Hey, not sure if it's the same problem, but some days ago i tried to print from sd card on mx mega x. But it didn't show the new file I put on the sd-card. It showed me the old g-codd files which where still on the carc but not the new ones, also if I moved an old g-code file on thd card it didn't show up. I tried formating the card but it didn't work. After some google search I found a thread where someone had the same problem, the solution was, formating with the tool from this site. https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/
I have no idea why it didn't work with other formating tools, but this solved the isdue for me
Format the card with SDFormatter. Perform the full overwrite, not the quick format. After SDormatter, format again in the camera.
FYI, the SanDisk High Endurance cards work fine in the A119V3. It supports up to 256GB.
FYI there isn't limit of 1 GB. They should be standard SD cards formatted to either FAT16 or FAT32. Most up to 4 GB should work but newer cards seem to care less and less about combatibility. 'SDHC' cards up to 32 GB might work but anything over it will almost certainly not. The best bet is to stay away from HC cards in general.
If nothing seems to work, try using a tool like THIS to format it.
Run all ota updates, then factory reset. something sounds fishy, so better to start clean on the newest firmware than to troubleshoot bugs that might go away on a fresh and up to date os.
Sounds like your SD card might be too slow or failing.
Try doing a full format (not the quick) with the official SD card formatting tool:
Safe and best to just start over at this point.
Take out SD card.
Factory reset. Run setup wizard but choose basically to install nothing. Goto system settings and update to latest ota firmware. 22.214.171.124. Factory reset again now that your on latest firmware.
Format SD card on a computer, must use the official SD card associations tool:
The tool chooses exfat or fat32, it always makes the right choice, and formats correctly for the size of card. Always use this tool to format SD cards. Android can read exfat, so don't worry if the tool decides exfat.
Load up your proper formatted SD card with your collection.
Put in SD card in unit, run through initial setup, this time install what you want.
Make sure NOT to format the SD card for internal storage on android itself if it asks.
(The SD card tool seems like voodoo, a format is a format right? No. The SD card has special bits and areas windows mac and Linux don't see or format correctly using built in format tools.
My 3d printer ender 3v2 would only allow me to update firmware from SD cards formatted with that tool, even though once the machine booted it could see a card formatted by windows just fine. So there's definitely something extra that the official tool does right. After using the official tool the bootloader saw the card fine for a firmware update)
Try reformatting the SD card to FAT 32, using the SD Memory Card Formatter tool. Make sure to rename the firmware.bin file to something else, whether that be firmware12.bin or ender3.bin etc anything would work. Just make sure the filename is different than what you originally tried to flash and the .bin file is the only file on the SD card.
Well first try reformatting the SD card to FAT 32, using the SD Memory Card Formatter tool. Make sure to rename the firmware.bin file to something else, whether that be firmware12.bin or ender3.bin etc anything would work. Just make sure the filename is different than what you originally tried to flash and the .bin file is the only file on the SD card.
If that doesn't work then a new SD card may fix the issue.

Same exact thing happened to me. I eventually fixed it by doing the following:
1. Grab a brand new SD card (not the one that came with) and format using https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/
Copy this recovery firmware to the newly formatted SD card (pinned in the Retro Game Handhelds Miyoo Mini channel) https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1LCwUtQ8k1UCH-DnEaw3HoCXyCYQXXDIx?usp=sharing
Do the normal update stuff: take out the battery, put in the new SD card, plug into power. At this point, my system finally resurrected and the update screen popped in. Un-plug the device when the screen changes from the update screen to the charging screen.
Remove the SD card, put the battery back in, make sure the device powers on to the recovery firmware.
Remove the recovery firmware from the SD card and replace with the newest image, the one you initially were trying to update to. Try and update again -- this time, it worked for me.
GPS will still work when power direct to the camera. If it doesn't, then the GPS is defective.
Format the memory card with SDFormatter. Perform the full overwrite, not the quick format. After SDFormatter, place back in the camera and format again inside the camera.
I've had this issue with 3d printers, had to use the "official sd card format tool" found here: https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/
It formats to the proper sd card spec that low level devices like bootloaders expect to see.
I'm still amazed it actually worked. My 3d printer rejected all sd cards except the one that came with it, until i formatted them with this tool.
Hope that helps!
I've been able to revive 'bricked' USB drives using this tool.
It's an SD Memory Card Formatter but it also works for standard USB drives. I now keep this tool installed for this reason.
If you have a lot of small files on the card, the space could be used up due to the file allocation size that the card may be using.
File allocation size is the size of the "blocks" of data that is used to store data, and it both depends on the file system that the card was formatted using and the file allocation size that was used.
For example if a card is formatted using NTFS and the default file allocation size is used, then each "block" will be 4096 bytes or 4KB.
There is a limit on how many data "blocks" that can be used or is supported by the different file systems, with larger cards typically using larger "blocks".
Another thing could be that deleted data might still be in the recycle bin, there could be hidden files/folders or there could be more than one partition, and you might only be looking at one of them.
This tends to happen with cards that were formatted and/or used with devices (Phones, tablets and the like) and not things like PCs.
An unmounted partition would be invisible, but any data that's inside of it would still count against the free space.
If you have copied or backed up the data on the card, you could try using the official SD Card formatter that's found on the sdcard.org site.
Here's a link to make things easier: https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/
If this doesn't or formatting using your OS doesn't work, then you might need to try one of the numerous options out there to force format a SD card.
You should be able to get started by Googling "how to force format an SD card" and then check the various options and try one or more that look good to you.
I hope this made sense and was helpful.
Best wishes and good luck!
GBA backup tool should work fine, try reformatting your micro sd using this https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/ it usually fixes weird issues like that (remember to back up your files before reformatting)
What size is the SD card?
Is the SD card labeled “boot” or “BOOT”?
You may have to format the card first, this happens with cards that are usually larger than 32GB.
Grab the SD Formatter
Format the card as FAT. If the SD card is larger than 32GB make a 32GB partition that can be formatted as FAT. You’ll need to use gparted or kali-tweaks to expand the 32GB partition after boot.
Format the card with SDFormatter. Perform the full overwrite, not the quick format. Once that's done, place back in the camera and format again in the camera. See if that corrects the issue.
I'd recommend using the SD Memory Formatter offered by the SD Association (the people who create SD memory standards). This tool will completely ignore any existing partitions and reformat the card to it's original state. In the past I've found it difficult, or near impossible, to remove some partitions created during various installation processes, and this tool has never failed.
This is the SD formatting software you should use, but you will need a computer. https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/
And you're probably right about issues arising from inserting and removing from your phone. Do you unmount the SD card before pulling it out?
Try formatting to FAT32 WITHOUT WINDOWS. Use a real SD card formatting tool like from the actual SD card association: https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/
The windows tool kind of screws it up.
I'll be honest, I have never heard of that happening with a SD card. I would download the SD card formatter from here and format the SD card with that first. After that, go in and use the partition manager to format it from exFat to Fat32. If that doesn't work, you may have a bad sd card.
Also, just a tip, Nintendo recommend using the SD Association formatter (which is more optimised for SD cards instead of disk drives) to format SD Cards instead of using windows built in formatter.
Here's a link to the download
Link to Nintendo's SD card formatting support documentation
> Software loaded in the SD card cannot be checked because the SD card cannot be recognised.
Something's wrong with the SD card. Try reformatting using SDFormatter unless you are using an card that is 64GB or larger.
It will be a bit before I can respond with more detail when my kids go to bed, but I use SD Card Formatter made by SDCard.org
Just using default settings has worked for me.
I also copied the files from my SD card to my windows 10 computer before wiping. I’m sure you can find the gcode online as well. I don’t have the cadet so I don’t know for sure. You definitely should be able to copy files around.
Ideally you should format using this software : https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/
However, if you're working with no issues then you're all good. Only if you have issues do you need to reformat or experiment with non-default formatting parameters.
If a folder is persisting then you aren’t properly formatting, as formatting destroys all data. Every operating system has some form of formatting ability but I’d recommend the official SD card formatting tool.
Your card should be a dstt clone based on the label, try reforfatting your micro sd using SDFormatter https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/eula_windows/SDCardFormatterv5_WinEN.zip (make sure you back up your files first). The retrogamefan gbatemp thread I linked you earlier is the only guide I’d trust for YSMenu, and it has some pretty detailed instructions you can read if you haven’t already
>ho la sd un po' sminchiata (ogni tanto in fase di scrittura "sparisce" dal pc e devo ripartire)
Ti consiglio di cambiarla al più presto, anzi vedi oggi stesso su Amazon visto che è periodo di sconti fra black friday e cyber monday.
Ti consiglio keepa (o al più camelcamelcamel) per controllare che siano effettivamente scontate.
In realtà potrebbe essere pure il lettore un po sporco o simile (pure quelli costano pochissimo sempre su Amazon nel caso).
Potresti provare a recuperarla con l'utility di formattazione ufficiale eventualmente https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/
>Sì, ho seguito la guida ufficiale, ho fatto tutti i backup anche se non ho esattamente chiari tutti i passaggi.
Non è troppo importante che capisca tutto, se hai seguito alla lettera hai i backup necessari da tenere al sicuro (per esempio su google drive)
if you re-image your card on top of an old image, it should be just fine. use something like win32image or etcher.
if you ever want to 'reset your card to stock' the best tool is the official sd memory card formatter (mac and windows available).
Not directly with Windows but you can with 3rd party apps like Easus and maybe SD Card Formatter.
Try reformatting your SD. Don't use a native program. Go to https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/ . Download and install, and reformat your micro SD to FAT32 (the program does not give you an option for format. It automatically uses FAT32). Then go through the steps again. Here is a video of the computer side of things: https://youtu.be/5rdPaiOtV6c
Firmware version can be found in the dash camera menu.
I would format the card with SDFormatter. Perform the full overwrite, not the quick format. Place in the camera and format again using the camera.
You can probably only detect the part of your card still accessable to your OS like windows or whatever. Download "SD Card Formatter" from the SD association to re format it. Be careful you choose the correct drive, it will let you format pretty much anything. 👍
I've had USB drives just fail for no reason.One more thing you could try is https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/
If you used them last summer to take photos don't you have that camera?
Oh I assure you I'm using the latest Sakura kernel. The savestate feature is complete trash on every single version I've tried it, and well... that's the only selling feature of Sakura. YSMenu has every AP patch, and doesn't have a savestate feature, which is much better than Sakura's incomplete AP patches and a completely broken feature that no one really uses.
You need to format with FAT32, 32KB allocation unit size. It must be that, as that is the fastest you will get out of any SD card. For 32GB and lower, perhaps use SD card formatter: https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/
For a like 16 gig flash drive I still use fat32 that works fine enough.
So for the SD association you can see on their FAQ for their format tool that above a certain capacity - 32 gig or more - they're recommend exFat. See also their press release - this is a pdf, the quote is:
> The SDXC specification uses Microsoft’s exFAT file system to support its large capacity
and interoperability in a broad range of PCs, consumer electronics and mobile phones.
The exFAT system was designed for increased compatibility with flash media, from
portability of data to interoperability with multiple platforms and devices on removable
Make sure that they are formatted with the FAT32 file system. Windows will format any SD card bugger than 32GB as exFAT, which most 3D printer firmware cannot handle. Try using the SD Memory Card Formatter utility to format your cards.
Try with a smaller capacity drive <32GB formatting it with SD Association's SD Card Formatter utility.
Also insert the drive only after the LED turns solid red.
Which model memory card? Only the SanDisk High Endurance card is good to use with dash cameras. Their Ultra series can/will develop faults over time, which can cause lots of issues. They just weren't designed for dash camera use.
If you want to try to "fix" your current card, try formatting with SDFormatter. Perform the full overwrite, not the quick format. After SDFormatter, format again in the camera.
I also had trouble using same exact drive I had used to update to 1006, which is pretty odd. Formatted it w/ https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/ (non-quick format), copied the image over to it and then it worked the 1st try.
I had to flash it the first time via microSD card, I believe.
First thing I would do is make sure that you have your microSD card formatted correctly - need to be FAT and not exFAT that Windows like to use for large cards. Use can used the SD formatting utility to make sure it's properly formatted https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/
I've tried multiple cards using different formatting systems including the Official SD Card Formatter. If the second card is in the system, it won't boot. It shuts down right away after showing the message I listed (message shows, there is a five second countdown and then it's powered off). Not getting to the point where I can access options etc.
Try downloading the SD memory card formatter on a computer and formatting the card with that. Then, put the card back in the camera and see if it recognizes it. If it does, then reformat it in the camera. If it doesn't, the card may have been damaged.
