Sandisk 128gb sd card not working
Hi, I have formatted my sd card to Fat32 with minitool (I'm on windows 10) and set it to primary, unzipped and copied over recalbox 4.0.1 as usual but I only get a black screen when I boot the pi, any suggestions?
@benbb I don't think it will accept a card that high. I did try using that same card, and I think it worked for a little while but failed during an update, I don't remember why exactly. I don't know much about Linux.
But the bigger question would be, why need a card that high? I used to think keeping everything on one card would be convenient, especially since I travel with it. All was going great until I had a catastrophic error during an upgrade and lost everything.
I am only asking to save you a world of headaches down the line.
@sag508 thanks for the reply, it is actually for a friend, he wanted a 128gb card and I didn't realise there were problems as I only use a 32gb sd.
I have done it now, I couldn't get this way to work, so I made an image of my 32gb card and put that on the 128gb card, and then increased the partition with gparted to use the full capacity of the card.
Been running a 128gb card for over 8 months and never missed a beat when running 4.01 or 4.1 unstable.
Meant to add, I just make an image of the card before doing any upgrades then if it goes belly up I'm back in business with a few mouse clicks.
As for why need a card so big - I've still ran out of space! Got 152 PSX eboots plus loads of PSP and Dreamcast images.
