SD2SP2 won't work

Post by Jackal » Thu Jan 07, 2021 10:35 pm

My Gamecube won't work with an SD2SP2 adapter. It shows up in the device selection, but when I chose it and confirm, it disappears from the menu.
I tried it with different SD cards (Transcend and SanDisk), FAT16 and FAT32, new partition table and even bought a second SD2SP2 adapter.
The same SD cards work fine with an SD Gecko.

I hope someone can give me a hint what I'm doing wrong.

I downloaded it on sunday (3.1. 2:23 CET).

PS: I haven't seen that Swiss got an update to 994. I just tested it with the new version, but the problem remains.

OK, it seems I got unlucky with my SD cards. I found a Toshiba 4GB SD card in my old 3DS and this seems to work just fine.
The Transcend card was a 2GB (not listed in the compatibility chart) and the SanDisk was a 32GB card but it seems to have problems in other devices too.
