I thought the maximum size card recognized by the "RASPI" is 32GB? Id try a smaller card.
Kind regards Baggey
It depends on the card. Some cards of up to 128GB have been reported as working ok with the Pi
Personally I've had no problems with 4, 8 or 16Gb cards (I have no use for >16Gb, since, on principle I tend to keep "data" separate from the main O.S. and "program" areas and, thus, would rather use a separate 16Gb or 32Gb USB stick). However, I have noticed that many of the "booting problems" reported seem to be associated with 32Gb+ cards. W.r.t. to the NOOBS installer I suspect that sometimes "impatience" may be part of the issue. I noticed, during testing of NOOBS 1.3.2 with composite video that if (due to slow detection of a wireless keyboard) a video select key is not detected there can be several minutes with just a 4Gb card whilst NOOBS is performing its initial re-partioning etc. when nothing seems to be happening unless one spots occasional green LED ACTivity. If that time is card size dependent there may be a situation where, for a very large card, "boot failure" is a mis-interpretation of what's really happening.
Still running Raspbian Jessie or Stretch on some older Pi's (an A, B1, 2xB2, B+, P2B, 3xP0, P0W, 2xP3A+, P3B+, P3B, B+, and a A+) but Buster on the P4B's. See: https://www.cpmspectrepi.uk/raspberry_pi/raspiidx.htm
