microSD breakout plus Arduino

by tod_kuykendall on Sun Jul 04, 2010 9:32 pm

I just received the microsd breakout board and soldered the pins to it and used a breadboard to hook it up to an Arduino. I followed the pin examples on the bottom of the breakout board instructions and the information on the SD card page as an example.

It works great but you need to replace the card.init() commands with card.init(true) to get the sdFat examples to work correctly. The first time I tried it threw an error but Google turned up a post by the author of sdFat explaining the problem and solution. I'm posting this here (my first post) to hopefully save someone else this problem.

Arduino Duemilanove, Kingston microsd 2GB card formatted FAT16 on the Adafruit microsd breakout board.

thats right if you have long wires you may need to drop the frequency down. we haven't finished our uSD card breakout tutorial but it'll be in there.
