SD card no longer recognized by Dingoo
« on: April 10, 2010, 08:08:33 pm »
Hi guys,

Hoping someone can help me out with this. I'm using a micro SD card in a mini SD adapter. Size is 8Gb.

This card used to work fine until I tried to install Dingux on it. I read you first need to reformat the SD card in FAT32 format. I did just that (on Vista) but when rebooting the Dingoo Dingux froze on the Dingux splash screen. I then rebooted into native Dingoo but found that upon accessing the SD card, I got the message "No File Found!". The card and its contents still work fine in Vista/Win2k though.

I tried everything I could think of after that. I used the Panasonic formatting tool which didn't change anything. I formatted to FAT32 with 32kb allocation unit size which didn't change anything either. I tried formatting the card on a Win2k machine but that didn't change anything either.

Can someone please tell me how to resolve this issue? I would be eternally grateful!

Thanks.

You tried format the SD directly in PC???(without use the dingoo, but using a usb-adapter or sd entrance)

Some errors happen cause the dingoo-usb-mode is not so reliable to format.

Thanks for the reply and yes, I did try that, both in Vista and in Win2k but to no avail, I'm afraid...

and did you remove all teh partitions, make a single fat32 partition, and format at 16k (might be 32k) blocksize, those settings seem to work pretty well for everyone so far

Thanks. I didn't format at 16kb but I did at 32kb, yes. No other partitions on the card.

Is it worth a shot formatting it again at 16kb?

if it doesn't work, keep trying, could be that it's not sitting in the slot right, just because you've taken it out and in again a couple of times, if it's not being recognised by the native that's one of the likely problems, which would also result in dingux not booting, there's no way changing the bootloader could stop it recognising the card, and no reason it should suddenly stop working if you haven't changed anything...hmm, a mystery, better call holmes on this one...

Have you got another smaller spare Micro SD Card or even aswell another adaptor, that what you can rule out the Card and Adaptor.

If you try another Card and Adaptor (dont install dingux, just put some roms on it and browse with the Dingoo and launch them with native emus) If you cant see the files on another SD card etc then chances are the Problem is the the Dingoo, maybe the Card is not sitting right in the slot, or the slot has a fault?

krako, that actually did the trick, thank you! Awesome, I remember having used an older version of that tool but it didn't work.

For any others suffering from this problem, HP_USB_Disk_Storage_FormatTool v2.2.3 seems to be the solution.

cool =)

for future users with problem of this kind: please, make two images ~of first 500 kb of sd card 1) after stndart formatting 2) after formatting using HP_USB_Disk_Storage_FormatTool using winhex and paste them here to compare. i forgot to do it myself =) Second thoughts are best, you know =) it will be wery interesting to know what kind of bug cause this problem. i think this is some sly byte in fat header that not changing with standart formatting yet not processing by pc at all, but mobile devices get crazy with him.

Well i am sure frustrated. My computer recognizes my microSD and i can see and add files when its in the standardSD adapter. But when i put it in the minisd adapter and into my dingoo, it knows there is a card, but when i go to browser it says "No file found". I am also unable to access the card when the dingoo is plugged in. I tried standard formatting at 32kb, 16kb, and 8kb, as well as the hp tool and niether worked. Please, has anyone come up with any other solution, or can anyone think of anything?
