I'm thinking it'd be helpful if there was links to Newegg for people to purchase the working SD cards if they need one of them.

My Sandisk 256MB/512MB/1GB SD cards all say no entries when I push start to switch to SD mode.  I tried FAT and FAT32.

edit: tested on beta3, beta 4 and beta 5

Try the 1.1b5 I just posted. I made a quick change that got one of my non-working cards working.

Hey ChillyWilly,

Separate working from nonworking SD cards.

Example:

WORKING

SD cards
AData MyFlash 50X 2GB
Kingston 256MB
PDP PATRIOT Signature Line 40X 2GB
PNY 2GB micro SD with SD adapter
PQi High-Speed 150X 2GB
TwinMOS Ultra-X 66X 256MB

SDHC cards
PNY SDHC 4GB
AData Super SDHC 2.0 8GB

FAILS

SD Cards
AData MyFlash Turbo 150X 512MB
Kingston 2GB
PNY Optima SD 2GB

This should be put on the wiki so other people can edit this instead of just you. The burden of updating this shouldn't be on one person. :)

I tried a 16MB Canon MMC but of course it didn't work and it stalled just like if there was no card connected at all.

The Neo2-SD can handle MMC, but there's no room in the code for MMC support. I was lucky to squeeze SDHC support in, mostly because it uses the exact same protocol as SD, just using block addresses instead of byte addresses. I'll work MMC into the enhanced menu.

@Nintendud - Good idea on the format. I'm not sure who's allowed to work on the wiki, but that's a good idea too.

ChillyWilly i can give you my wiki account if you like to do modifications.
Or you can ask from Dr.Neo to create a new wiki account for you. :)

Sandisk cards seem to work great with beta 6.  Thank you.
