µ-SD card for Azteeg X3

Postby fma » Fri Mar 08, 2013 4:40 pm

Hello!

What type of µ-SD card can I use on the Azteeg-X3 controler? Are HC OK ?

What capacity do you suggest? What is the upper limit?

Thanks,
Frédéric

I thought I had heard about an upper limit of 2gb. I assume that is due to FAT16 formatting or something like that...

This is the one I am using:

Works great.

I think you can use a larger SD card, but it might not use all the capacity. The data in/out is very slow, so buy the cheapest one.

I bought one at radio shack on sale for about $6. It came with a full size SD card adapter and a plastic case.

I've used a 4 and 8 GB card on mine formatted as fat32 and they both worked.

So HC cards work?

What is the minimum required to cover most cases? Did you ever generate a 1GB gcode file? Is it possible to store several files on the card?

2 or even 1 GB is enough. I used them since I had them on hand already. The smaller capacity ones are not as easy to find and not that much cheaper nowadays.

Is there a special configuration on the Azteeg X3 controller, in order to the µ-SD card to work?

Just enable SDCARD support in the firmware by un-commenting the appropriate line in configuration.h.
