Can't read SD Card


I have built my Vertex Nano and everything appears to be operating except for the SD Card reader. Whenever I insert an SD Card the display keeps indicating ‘No SD card’. Any suggestion what to do next?


You must initial the card first. For first use make “init SD card” and after change the card “change card”



Thanks for your help. I already had tried to init the SD Card and nothing appeared to be happening (apart from the LCD blinking once). So, I tried it again tonight and waited for a minute or two and again nothing changes on the LCD. However I then decided to reformat my SD Card using Disk Utility on OSX (FAT) and then initialized it on the Vertex, … and pronto the menu changed to CHANGE SD CARD. Hooray.


Is there any particular type of SD card to get for this, or is anything ok?


Bought a SanDisk 32gb card, worked fine.


So far any SD Card I used is fine as long as it is correctly formatted (FAT).
