Adafruit Micro SD card breakout board on Rasppi zero

by edojones on Thu May 09, 2019 3:31 pm

I like the look of the Adafruit Micro SD card breakout board and I see there is a tutorial for using the board with an Arduino. Can this board also work with the Raspberry Pi Zero?

Regards

Edward

Follow the circuit python instructions and wire it like you would any SPI device on a Pi.

So I have now done this, adafruit-blinka has been installed and the test programs show that the I2C and SPI parts are working on the Pi Zero. When I try the next step which is to run the test SD card Python code (https://circuitpython.readthedocs.io/pr ... en/latest/) it fails with 'no module named storage'.
I can not seem to find a 'storage' library so any ideas?

So Blinka doesn't have the full set of core libraries from CircuitPython. Storage is one of the missing ones. I'm not sure what a work around is. Hopefully the professionals will chime in.
