How to test second SD card

Postby THaase » Sat Apr 14, 2018 5:29 pm

As I'm assembling some IO-Boards I would like to now an easy solution to test the second SD Card slot.
Problem: I've no knowledge about any of the cores that require the second SD card - so would be great if somebody can give me a short instruction how to test the second SD card slot.

Thanks a lot!

The MiSTer Wiki list the cores that require the secondary memory card.

Edit: I just realized you aren't asking what cores require the second sd card.

It isn't that complicated to setup the SD-Card

Best to use the MSX one since the format is compatible for the other cores as well.

https://github.com/MiSTer-devel/MSX_MiSTer
"Use sdcreate util (you need to start it with Administrator rights) from Utils folder to format and create a basic SD card for MSX core. If you want to make it manually, then make sure OCM-BIOS.DAT is the first file copied to SD card after format! Only FAT16 is supported."
