Hello, I recently discovered this wonderful little SD card.
Discovered them from Chris Riley through this vid: WiFi SD Card

I can save my gcode files straight to the SD card through Wifi, BUT the Marlin firmware (1.1.9) wont read the card.
(The card powers up, I can find and save files to the card so, "its working")

Marlin detects that its inserted, but when I go to load the code from from the menu, it says "No SD card"

I made the changes listed here: Marlin Firmware Patch

But that didn't help.
Any suggestions?

I was looking at the code in Marlin 1.1.9 Bugfix looks like it has already been modded for WiFi Cards.

  // discard CRC
  spiRec();
  spiRec();
#endif
  chipSelectHigh();
  // Send an additional dummy byte, required by Toshiba Flash Air SD Card
  spiSend(0XFF);
  return true;
  FAIL:
  chipSelectHigh();
  // Send an additional dummy byte, required by Toshiba Flash Air SD Card
  spiSend(0XFF);
  return false;
}

... yes, I've tested them for a project with file sizes of up to 2 GB, what was not really usefull - so changed to hardwired instead eye rolling smiley

Uhmm... I actually found transfer speeds really quick.
Just need the ramps to read the file after the transfer.
