Recalbox 7.0

Samsung EVO+ 128GB: not compatible?



  • I've installed Recalbox 4.0beta4 on a Samsung EVO+ 128GB sd card, after formatting it with sd card formatter. Nothing happened, the installing process doesn't start. Am I doing something wrong or is it the card simply not compatible?

    You shoule verify that the card is formatted in FAT32



  • Yes indeed, when you are using an SD card with a capacity superior to 32GB, windows don't use the FAT32 to format your card, but exFAT format. So the installation of recalbox is impossible.
    I'm not a windows user, but I think that with minitool partition you can format your 128GB card in FAT32 format.
    If you have a PC using linux, you'll able to format in FAT32 with GParted.

    I confirm, use minitool partition wizard to format in FAT32. Don't forget to set the partition as Principal.



  • Thank you, this was exactly the problem. I forgot everything must be on FAT32 to work on the Pi. I used the Disk utility on my Mac to format and now everything works fine.
