  1. Hi

    I just tried to write data to the sc card shield with the provides library and example file.
    I always get an error “Fail initializing”.

    For my tests I used an old 128 MB SD card and a newer with 1 GB.

    Do I need to use a special SD Card?

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.
