Micro SD card breakout board

by ammarqs on Tue Jan 22, 2019 1:55 pm

I recently purchased a micro SD card breakout board and followed the tutorial here to set it up. Everything works perfectly.
As soon as i try and run it with the Arducam, the writing to the SD card fails. After doing some research and reading threads, it mentions that these sd card modules can only support upto 8GB cards. The card i have is a 32 GB. I read in multiple places that the SD card should not be more than 8GB here, but the SD card tutorial does not mention anything related to this. Can someone confirm or deny this?

Can you link to one of the places that mentions the SD card must be 8G.

In general, the breakout does not care about the SD card size or format. It is whatever you are using the SD card with that will have the limitation. In this case it seems like the Arducam only supports FAT32. Another limit may be max memory space addressable by the host - like an UNO. That seems to be the limit in this case, since FAT32 can support up to 32GB. So the 8GB limit must be an UNO limit.
