I've been using my M3 with an old 2gb micro sd, no problems at all. Today I bought a 16gb sdhc, pasted everything that was inside the 2gb micro sd into the new one and it won't boot.
I get to see the first loading screen, with the M3 logo, but I get stuck in a black screen after that. I tried formatting to fat32 and fat16, no luck. Only difference I can see between both micro sds are the size and the fact that the new, non-working one is sdhc.

Is this a known problem, am I doing something wrong? Any potential solutions?

if im not wrong M3 only supports up to 2gb
I just noticed this in the back part of the box in which the card came:
"Supports the Micro SDHC specification, allowing for high capacity memory cards 4GB, 8GB..."

So I guess it is not about SDHC nor the size.

After googling abit the M3 DS Real does support a 16gb sd card.

You might wanna try doing a full format with panasonic sd formatter and see if that helps

I tried already. I tried all possible options with that Panasonic program and with the one from sdcard.org. So it probably is not about formatting the card either...

    like an sd card slot extension thing?

  • MightyJAK @ MightyJAK:
    Yeah, to load from (and save data to) an SD card plugged into the serial port.

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    You test that extension thing through a regular usb reader on your pc? Could just be a shit one. Bought one for my 3d printer and it just straight up doesn't work

  • MightyJAK @ MightyJAK:
    it can't be plugged into a USB reader (it's made from a regular SD card to USB adapter, but with the USB end modded to a Dreamcast serial plug)

  • MightyJAK @ MightyJAK:
    It was working fine before I installed the GDEMU, but now the Dreamcast doesn't recognize it when I boot up Dreamshell.

    Can't find any threads about this particular issue on GBAtemp or the wider intarwebz. Saw one video on YouTube that seemed relevant, but it was some dude with the same issue, no solutions offered in the comments. :/
