Swiss Compatable SD cards

Postby Spawn » Sat Nov 14, 2015 9:11 pm

Hi,
I have a xenoGC modded GC. I burned the nightly build of swiss r330 ISO. I am using an SD Gecko to load ISO's from an SD Card (FAT32).
Transcend 32GB class 10 SDHC = Freezes at 100% loading
SanDisk 8GB class 10 SDHC "Extreme" = Works fine
I would like to buy a 64GB SD card. What SD cards are you guys using that are working for you?

Buying a "no name brand 128GB SDXC" sounds like a surefire way to end up with a fake.

Well since my Transcend 32GB will not work I'm looking for names and types of sd cards that have worked for other people. I tested the sd card for read/write/verify and everything was ok. Not sure why it will not load isos. Tried a sandisk micro sd card 32gb and that worked. Maybe it's just transcend cards I should avoid.

I can tell you that I've had nothing but bad luck with Transcend SD cards at least. If they aren't working in-game, can you try using "compatible" when you select the card on the device menu in Swiss? (hit X just before you select the SD card and choose the speed).

I always get Sandisk Extreme ones. They work beautifully.

I ordered 32GB one, Micro SD.Hope it works like that one for you.I've figured I may have problems with some games because my 2GB Sandisk is probably too slow to read from.

Pardon the necro post, but I was researching cards and these cards have come downin price significantly, deffinitely worth the $50-$60 for this matter.

First post (hi) Fwiw i've also had problems with a Transcend card. A class 10 16gb sdhc mk1. Got absolutely nowhere with it trying every conceivable option. Invested in a Sandisk 32gb Ultra Sdhc class 10 1 (80mbs) and that (so far) has never skipped a beat.

I had no problems with the orange Samsung Evo Miro SDXC cards at 64GB and 128GB.
Had problem with G.Skill 64gb Miro SDXC, freezes when loading.

Tested these about half a year ago, not sure how compatibility/cards have changed.

Major necro bump, but has anyone tested a 200gb SDXC with Swiss through an sd gecko? Particularly thinking about buying a 200gb Sandisk Extreme SDXC...they have dropped in price tons! Can anyone confirm these work??

If 128GB worked for me then I don't see why 200GB wouldn't.
