diy sp2sd

Post by Seniorcelica » Sun Feb 09, 2020 9:24 pm

so i have attempted to solder a spare sdreader into my gamecube so i can pop in a full size not micro sd card into it. followed the pinout guide and have swiss 775 via disc (xeno mod) when i boot swiss it defaults the source option to sp2sd whic i think means its detection the card. so i press a it scans for .001 second and goes to the option to choose disc or system doesnt load up the backup folders. on the sd i have my .iso and thats it. please help as i feel sooo close. i have checked continuity with a multi meter and there are no shorts etc. i have 3 and 6 grounded to 2 different spots with 2 wires and a 22\10v cap on point 4 and 3 on the sd reader side not the mobo.

I may make that clearer as i'll make one or two others, but I have answered on the other topic.

Also, I don't understand why you bothered and took the risk soldering straight to the GC's motherboard, when building the needed connector is so easy.

this has already been covered in another topic. I think the problem is the Papy G. capacitor. Try changing the friend capacitor, keep the 22uF and try a 25 or 50 volt capacitor. Solder it in the card slot, not directly in the gamecube; :arrow:

Or trying with no cap at all, since it has been proven to work too.

As to why I soldered to the mother board not a risk for me as I've been soldering for along time mod chips trace repairs hdmi mods etc. I did it cause I had the supplies lying arround and dint wanna wait for shipping as it looked super easy to do. I did solder the 22 50 to the sd card slot not the mobo. I'll try with out tho thanks!
