Post subject: [SOLVED] Need help with Fat32 internal SD card Posted: Fri 21 Jul 2017 17:36

I have a 32GB CF-Card with the ApolloOS image applied to it and I'm using that as my main system drive. I want to utilize a 16GB SD card on the internal SD slot of the vampire A500+ to transfer files to and from the Amiga and my PC. So removable FAT32 storage.

I already formatted it as FAT32 on my PC. ApolloOS doesn't see it.

SDDiag sees it just find.
HDToolBox sees it just fine.

When I formatted it on my PC I called it SD1 - I'll explain why later.

I also created a mountlist in DEVS:DOSDrivers called SD1 and here is how it is setup:

FileSystem = l:fat95
Unit = 0
Flags = 0
LowCyl = 0
HighCyl = 0
Surfaces = 1
BlocksPerTrack = 1
BlockSize = 512
Buffers = 20
BufMemType = 1
BootPri = 0
Stacksize = 4096
Priority = 5
GlobVec = -1
DosType = 0x46415401
Device = sagasd.device

SOURCE = http://www.apollo-core.com/knowledge.ph ... 1&z=DJsufn

The missing variable for me is in HDToolBox. I can remove filesystems and add fat95 no problem, but in the create partition screen when you have to choose the file system from the settings (right above the add new and change fs buttons) I do not know what to pick. I choose fat/01 but that doesn't allow workbench to popup and NDOS disk for SD1 to format. Nothing actually happens, even after reboot.

I've tried using the default SD0 mountlist that comes with ApolloOS but that is somehow detecting my CF card as SD0:Uninitalized and it wants me for format it showing the capacity as 32GB which is how I know it is seeing my CF card instead of the SD card. so I don't do that I simply cancel the operation and remove SD0 mountlist from DEVS (putting back in STORAGE.

There doesn't seem to be a step by step tutorial on how to format the internal SD card as FAT32 for use with both Amiga and PC via ApolloOS so I'm kind of piecemealing it from different sources and nothing I do works.

Can someone please give me step by step instructions on how best to accomplish this task?

I'm sitting in IRC #Apollo-Team now kind of waiting for anyone who can help to show up. I maybe AFK here and there doing other things, but mostly just sitting here playing with my new turbo charged A500.

#Team-Apollo to the rescue - You can close this topic as solved. I had something wrong in my mountlist.
