Got a Proffie 3 when they launched, just started messing around with it. Wanted to do some SD card tests, but I can’t get the SD card to mount. I have tried most of the troubleshooting steps I can think of and that I have available to me, but I’m starting to wonder if I got a bad board.
I am not entirely sure of the best format for this, so here’s the general sequence of events:
- Plug in Proffie 3
- Using Arduino 1.8.x (it’s 1.8.19 on my Mac, my Windows PC is shut down for the night but I can check on the version tomorrow) and plugin 3.6, I flash proffieOS 7.7 to the board. Flashes without a problem.
- Open serial monitor to check the SD card and get several SD card mounting errors. On Windows, I get constant Windows notifications of the SD card mounting – once every second or so, maybe a little faster. This continues until I unplug or reboot the board. On Mac, it will run the SD test but it will show zeroes with the SD mounting errors interspersed.
Things I have tried:
- Two different SD cards, both reformatted to FAT32. (I will note that neither was the card that came with the 3.3 – one was a card that came with a 2.2 that I have been using for a few years with no problems and the other is a card I use in my camera.)
- Tried both SD cards in an installed proffie 2.2 and a loose proffie 2.2, did not get any mounting errors. sdtest command ran successfully on both boards and both SD cards.
- Two different micro USB cables, same results.
- Multiple USB ports across both Windows and Mac machines, same results.
- Tried the solution in this thread: https://crucible.hubbe.net/t/failed-to-mount-sd-card-in-serial-monitor/3369 with no change in behavior.
- Realizing right before typing this and right before I go to bed that it could potentially be a bug in 7.7, I flashed 6.7 (the last version I was using) on Mac and was getting a motion initialization error instead of the SD mounting error. I can’t remember exactly what the error was now, but I can do some more testing on previous OS versions tomorrow.
- All of the tests above except for the very last one about previous OS versions were done on both Windows and Mac.
Open to all suggestions on what else I should try. Or if you also think I got a bad board, I can contact about a replacement. Happy to provide any other information, screenshots, and do any tests you suggest once I get home from work tomorrow.
