Question SD Card Not Working

On my eDGe (with software update installed), I have a brand new 4GB SDHC Card I have inserted. I get a warning that a blank SD card has been inserted. I click the warning, and it brings up the option to format. I click format, and nothing happens.

If I go into the system settings for Device Storage, the entire SD card section is grayed out, and the Total and Available Space sections are both listed as Unavailable.

Am I missing something?

try formatting the card to fat32 on your computer and place a few files on it (just to test)

How long did you update take? Mine is 3 hours and counting. Can't reboot. Took the battery out. Nothing helps. It just won't reboot and it seems to be in a loop.

I had the exact same thing happen. I formatted the SD card like 5 times, both on my laptop and in the eDGe itself and it just would never recognize it although it was a card I regularly used in a camera and my laptop read it with no problem. The second card I put in worked fine the first time.

The only thing I can think of is that the two cards were of very different sizes (one was 2GB and the other was 8 or 16GB. The 2GB was much older and the larger was newer). I can't remember which card worked and which one didn't, but I think it was the 2GB that didn't. So definitely try a couple of different cards in the machine, and then collectively maybe we can figure out which cards it does and doesn't like.

Note: although you do have to have an SD card inserted to do the USB transfer, I was able to USB transfer files even with the SD card it didn't like. It was only getting the eDGe to read the card directly that I couldn't do. (I had the greyed out options, just like you when I looked at the device itself, but the card seemed to work OK as being just the card that needs to be inserted while you transfer files with the USB cable).
