How to remove Recalbox from an SD card

  • Hello everyone! I have an issue with a micro SD card with recalbox 4.0 for rpi3, i want to delete it to make a fresh install, but Windows identifies the SD as Read Only, i checked the lock switch and it's unlocked, i tried using diskpart, using the command "attributes disc clear readonly" but it does nothing, tried with SD Formatter and nothing, so i don't know what to do.
    Any help will be preciated

    @diego-fernández try another SD card reader, and if that doesn't solve the issue, your SD may be dead.

  • @diego-fernández I recently had this problem. As @OyyoDams said, I tried to use another micro sd adaptator and it worked.
    Give it a try ;)

  • @oyyodams I used two sd adapters and both did the same, the weird thing is that recalbox works fine, except that some configs doesn't save, that's why i find odd that i can't format the sd.

    Well i have to buy another sd card
    Thanks for your help!

  • @diego-fernández I've seen some users report that they were able to format an SD card (which was supposed to be defective) by the Android smartphone, and it worked after that. I've never done that, but it's a last try, before giving up completely on the card. If it does not work, it's definitely defective.
