Second boot

Post by chrisfried » Tue Mar 12, 2019 1:02 am

I've got my Gem together and functional, though I don't have my battery, yet.

The first time I boot it up, everything's great. Retropie starts up, I can configure my buttons, the menus do menu-y things. It's great.

Then I turn it off, pushing the Sleep button for a gentle shutdown. Turns off nicely.

But if I try to turn it on again, it gets as far as the kiteretro logo and hangs for eternity.

Thus is every boot until I give the SD card a fresh flash, and the cycle begins anew.

Any thoughts?

Another user had this, it was their SD card. Can you try another?

I'm sure I have an unused one somewhere around here... I'll try to track another one down in the morning.

Yup, swapped in a different SD card and it works fine. Weird. Thanks!

I can't find the other thread, but it was something to do with the Pi not working with SDXC, but did with SDHC? Does that match with what you are seeing?

Yup, that matches.
