SD2SP2 Not reading SD card?

Post by clarkdv » Wed Dec 04, 2019 7:25 pm

Hello all, I have recently gotten an SD2SP2 adapter. I have a SanDisk 256GB micro SDXC card formatted in fat32 and the newest revision of Swiss. Swiss detects the SD2SP2 Adapter but when I go to load my sd card it shows this: https://photos.app.goo.gl/qeoZj32jcinfn5T66

Now the board feels pretty loose which I don’t know if that’s normal. It does seem to behave slightly differently with trying to load if I hold the board in a different position, instead of saying something about the file system for a brief second, it says Setting Up for about one second before failing to load. Perhaps I have a bad board with loose connections or am I missing something? Is there a certain way my SD card needs formatted or a certain file structure that I must follow? I simply have an iso at the root of my card right now. Thanks!!

You say you have the newest revision of Swiss, but I'm reading r688 off that screen. Not that it'd help you.

How do you boot SWISS?
Did you test your SD card in your SD Gecko?
Are you sure you plugged the SD2SP2 the right way?
Some cards are known to cause problems here and there.

ISOs at the root of a FAT32 volume is the usual way I do it, should be OK.

I took this video last week. I updated the revision today and it did the same thing. Sorry for the confusion.

I boot Swiss with AR disc, and my sd card wouldn’t work in the gecko would it? Being that it’s SDXC?

The limitations are related to AR, which only boots from the Slots A and B, and maybe only regular SD in FAT16. But once you booted SWISS off an SD card known to work, you can go to eject, and swap the cards in the Gecko to test.

All my cards are working (Fat16/Fat32, regular/HC/XC) regardless of the slot where they are connected (Slot B/SP2).

Just tried it. That’s not reading either! So the issue isn’t SD2SP2. What would be causing my card to not read?

Try to set the reading speed lower, format it with another device, or try to make a little volume on it, 32GB to begin and increasing.

How would you lower the reading speed?

It's in SWISS's settings: 16MHz/32MHz unless it is not in late versions.

Edit: It is present as of r714, it's IDE-EXI speed setting, while I doubt it will improve compatibility, trying won't hurt.
