Unable to detect SD card

Postby foot » Wed Dec 29, 2021 3:08 am

Hi,

I brought a new anbernic rg552 n a Sandisk 256gb sd card.

I created a folder - “roms” to store all the various game systems roms on the sd card n intend to point this folder on the retrox.

The retrox is activated on the device and can’t seem to detect the sd card. When I tried to do a manage folder and to create the folder, it threw me an error n was unable to create the folder.

Any advice?

Thank you.

The creation may fail because Android is quite picky when allowing apps to write to the drive.
I'll be releasing an update to fix several storage issues later today, hopefully it helps handling this issue with your sd card.

Might I get an update on whether things worked out for you? Asking because I faced similar issues in the past but never got the chance to post about it on here!

The release from February the 18th came with these fixes. It seems that fixed the reported issues, but there is a lot of Android devices and versions combinations so if you still have problems, please report back

Gotcha, I'll look into it for my device. Very true about the large number of Android devices, I upgraded my own one recently too.
