Problem with SD Card

Recommended Posts

So I finally got my ultimaker and it works nearly perfect.

With the 2GB Card came with the ultimaker, I can work. I see the files.

The Problem is. I've tried some other SD Card (yes old SD Cards from old Cameras), but they doesn't work.

I only see card inserted. And an empty folder stucture.

I've got a macbook pro and formated the card as MS-DOS file system.

Is they problem the filesystem?

I had the "no card" issue yesterday. The front screen showed "card inserted", but the menu indicated "no card".

As a side note, I had some difficulty during insertion of the 2 GB card, there was a small bit of plastic that was between a couple of the contacts that broke and was sticking up like a hang nail. I trimmed it off and thought all would be well.

I disassembled the UltiController and found this - Picture (a bent contact pin on the SD card slot). I was able to bend it back into place and it is, once again, working.

It was not necessary to remove the longer screws with the stand-offs that are holding the board to the wood cover. I removed the sides and the back only.

It has been mentioned that SDHC cards are not recommended for the Ultimaker UltiController. This may be the official recommendation, but I had been using 16 GB SDHC memry cards without an issue, except for the above (which is unrelated to the type of card).

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
