I bought a 128gig SD card.
is it just me or is it difficult to re-format a SD card as Fat32 in windozeX ?
it came EXfat.... Try to format it, will only let me do is EXfat or NTFS, what about fat32?
Yup, that's a problem with Windows. It will not format anything more than 32GB to FAT32, even though FAT32 supports drives up to 2TB (and can go larger with some fiddling). Old versions like Win98 used to do it, but it hasn't been allowed for quite some time (since XP, I think).
This program will do it in Windows: http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index. ... format.htm
The pi4b gives me the red flashes of nolife with EXfat and noobs copied over.
I had to use gparted in MINT to format my SD card as FAT 32 , as witch seems to be required for the Pi to boot.
Correct. Raspberry Pi computers can only boot from FAT16/FAT32 filesystems.
Like wildfire above, I don't bother with NOOBS and just write Raspbian images
to cards or USB drives with Etcher
My mind is like a browser. 27 tabs are open, 9 aren't responding,
lots of pop-ups...and where is that annoying music coming from?
