|Help Needed With SD Card.|
27 Mar 2019 17:56
|Hi guys, I want to setup my SD card with an Amiga filesystem not fat32. I have been following the wiki and have hit a bit of a wall. |
I can go into HDtoolbox with the sagasd.device and can see both my 32 and 64gb cards no issue. I can create a partition with the pfs3aio020-60 filesystem that comes with Coffin 54. Everything goes smooth.
If I then try mount using SDmountonoff, I get an error that it is not a dosdisk, which ok I expect if the default with coffin is expecting a DOS formatted SD card. So ok, I create the SD0 file, use the dir script for giggledisk and the drive info is all correct. I add the L:pfs3aio020-60 to the filesystem line and copy this file to storage.
I can then mount SD0 from storage:DosDrivers but the disk does not show up uninitialised and i cannot format it using pfsformat.
I am not sure what I am doing wrong there.

|I can follow the exact same procedure with it as a fat32 disk and create the SD0 file and add it to devs for mounting on boot as normal, just not when it is an Amiga FS. |
So I am thinking it has someting to do with that 020-60 version of pfs3 perhaps? THe wiki guide does call for using version 18 from the pfs3-aio-handler.

|If you haven't already done so, you're best bet would be to go here first:|
and grab the latest version of PFS3AIO.

|I have tried the latest PFS3aio. I noticed when using that over the one that came with CoffinOS, when I went into the SD0 settings, the fiflesystem had already recognised it was the pfs3aio, before I had to input the details manually. |
However, outcome is still the same. It says the SD0 is mounted, but I cannot format with PFSformat and it says device not found.

|I have tried two cards and the outcome is the same with the AmigaFS. I can get the 32GB card to work fine with fat32. the SD0 file, it auto-detects the fat95 filesystem and it automounts on boot from the dev folder fine. |
If I format the 64GB card to fat32, I cannot get it to work like the 32GB, says there is no disk present, same as ex-fat. If I format it to NTFS, it will mount but says it is 100% full and write protected.
I think I will sleep on it and try tomorrow. I can always use the 32GB card only and without an AmigaFS but if it should work I want to get it to work lol

|Thanks for the info guys. As far as I can tell I am following everything in the guide ok. Apart from the slight differences with the new SAGAdrivers and the utility names and the new coffin. |
I tried FFS as I could not get PFS3 to work, I can see all the correct drive info after running giggledisk, it auto-detecs the FFS filesystem. Same as PFS3-aio did. It tells me SD0 is mounted but I do not see an uninitialised disk.
So I have just formatted my 64GB back to fat32 and have just left it at that instead. It works fine with that, I can make the SD0 file and it will auto-mount from Devs.

|Scrap that, It has worked with SFS :D thanks for the links. |
