Reprap Firmware on Due/RADDS SD Card
September 05, 2017 03:09PM
Just curious what you guys are using for SD cards that work with Radds on reprap firmware? only asking because i've loaded RRF on my due+radds and with the SD card, it resets the due over and over. if i remove the card while it's doing it, it boots and i can get the firmware info. if i remove the sys folder it also seems to boot but no configuration of course. So it seems to have issue with reading the file but it seems like it detects the file list since when the sys folder isn't present or empty it says it cannot find it. Though it just resets itself over and over with it present.

i've tried two different ones so far (a 8gb, smallest i can find) and a 16gb sandisk ultra. Note this is with the micro sd slot on the radds. i don't have an LCD attached at the moment so i don't have one on there. maybe it's not formatted properly or the sd slot is messed up? any ideas?

Sounds like a possible firmware bug to me. Which version of RRF are you running? AFAIR there are versions 1.18.2 and 1.19.2 available, perhaps others too.

If you remove the SD card after at least one cycle and run M122, the last reset reason and software reset data may give a clue about what is going on.

That behaviour reminds me off earlier versions of RRF_RADDS. I could hear the steppers knock repeatedly until the SD-Card init was finally done.
That bug was fixed a long time ago.
For the record, I'm using SanDisk Ultra HC class10 SD-card. Maybe older SD-cards draw to much current?

Thanks for the reply. This was 1.18.1, didn't update it passed that. i switched back to repetier for now but planning on switching back using the latest version. i'll give that command a try if it happens again.

Had the same thing on my first install of RRF turn out it was the config file. Something in there was wrong for the radds causing reboot
What you have to do is first remove a good amount of config line see if it boot, if it do boot you know the wrong line is in the config line you remove, keep removing till you know what line cause this.

Or you can start from a config.g from a radds user and mod it for your need, here one I find on my desktop, probably not my last but it should work if you adapt it to your specs
