Micro SD breakout board

by idanb on Mon Mar 18, 2013 6:11 pm

Hi,

I'm facing a bit of a problem. I bought the Micro SD breakout board and it's not working I'm receiving the following error when using the CardInfo test:

initialization failed. Things to check:
* is a card is inserted?
* Is your wiring correct?
* did you change the chipSelect pin to match your shield or module?

I'm using the following hardware:
* Transcend 4GB Micro SDHC
* Arduino MEGA ADK for Android


I wanted to upload the pics of the system but I receive an error even though I am using JPEG.

Need your help

Reduce the size of your jpegs. 800 x 600 is usually a good size, so long as we can still see details.

Hard to see, but it looks like none of the connections on the breakout board are soldered? It won't work that way. You should solder on the header strip, insert that in the breadboard, and then jumper to the breadboard.
