128GB SDXC card help needed for recalbox installation

  • I've been using a 32GB microSD for recalbox for a few months but I ran out of space for roms so I started looking for something bigger. So, I bought a Kingston 128GB micro SDXC card from Amazon. It came formatted as exFAT, so I used minitool to delete the partition and created a 128GB FAT32 partition instead. I then extracted the recalbox.zip download to the card and put it in my raspberry pi2 to install the OS, but when I switch the Rpi2 on to install recalbox nothing happens, the screen just stays black (My old 32GB card still boots recalbox as normal if I use that instead) Is there a special way to partition the 128GB micro SDXC card? Or a workaround? Best regards

  • Add more rom to usb or hdd like /usb/roms/snes or /usb/roms/psx

  • Oh okay, I didn't know that was possible, so I assume I just create that /usb/roms/xxx directory structure on a usb stick and recalbox will see it and pick it up.

  • Okay I tried this and the recalbox doesn't seem to be seeing the USB stick, it's a 64GB stick and formatted FAT32, I added the directory structured as advised and added some gamegear and lynx roms but they don't show in the main menu Should I be able to see the USB drive in the recalbox network drive too?

    Yeah what Criiz said is false and has nothing to do with your problem. so do you still have a problem with your 128go sd card ? What is its manufacturer and model ?

  • Information on the card is as follows:   Kingston 128GB Micro SDXC CLASS 10 / U1 SDC10G2/128GB 31612-001.ADOLF E5X281528 TWLN002845671

  • I'm not sure if it matters, but did you create a primary or a logical partition in minitool? It should be a primary, but I know that minitools defaults to logical in some cases.

  • Thanks so much that was exactly the problem, set it to primary and everything works great. Brilliant advice.

  • I'm using a microSDHC SanDisk Ultra 128Go. And i had the same issue. Changing to primary solved it. Thanks a lot!!
