Samsung Evo 64gb sd card problem.

  • Hi, I have bought 3 64gb Samsung Evo sd cards, and I can't get any of them to work. I have formatted all of them to FAT32 using 32kb cluster, and i just get a black screen every time and nothing installs. I have 32gb Evos and they work fine. Is there something I'm doing wrong or is there a problem with recalbox compatability with these Samsung memory card. Thanks in advance.

    Hello you must format to minitool partition wizard :

    For information : if you are using a 64Go SDCard, your formater software may force format in exFAT. So if you have this problem, you can try minitool partition wizard (windows only)

    as Primary

  • I've been using mini partition wizard.  I've formatted all three cards so many times, but still they don't work. I've checked them after formatting and they say they are FAT32 but they still don't work. I've been using 32gb cards and I haven't had a problem. But for some reason I just can't get the 64gb cards to work. Thanks for your help.

  • Hi, Where did you buy them? There are lot of fake samsung evo sd card =/ (sadly, I bought one on ebay) You should test them with this tool : h2testw

  • I did buy them off ebay, but they seem to work fine in other devices. And they are reading as 64gb. <span style="line-height: 1.5;">I'll test them later.  Thanks.</span>

  • Mine was detected by windows as 64gb too, and i can used it, but when recalbox tried to format it on ext, there was on error. These fake SD are detected as 64gb but only 7 or 8 gb are available.
