I have worked out a lot for myself already on this great machine but was looking for just a little help on this issue,
ps im running FW3.00
cheers in advance guys
Read all of these instructions once before you begin. (I'm not resposible for the untimely demise of your GP2X, either. )
You'll need some new/fresh rechabgable batteries, and a non-SDHC SD card (2GB or lower in size).
Download firmware 2.0 from the archive here.
Put your non-SDHC SD card in your card reader. And plug the reader into your computer.
Copy everything from the card to your computer. The next part will erase everything on the card!
Format the non-SDHC SD card as FAT. (Go to My Computer, right-click on the drive letter that represents your card, then choose format. Choose FAT in the "File System..." drop-down box, and press "Start".)
Extract the contents to a folder, and copy everything to the non-SDHC SD card. Don't put the data in any folders on the non-SDHC SD card!
Put the non-SDHC SD card into your GP2X, and hold Start and Select as you turn it on. Continue to hold those buttons until the main menu comes up.
Format the non-SDHC SD card (again), or just delete all of the files.
Download firmware 2.1.1 from the archive here.
Extract the contents to a folder, and copy everything to the non-SDHC SD card (again). Don't put the data in any folders on the non-SDHC SD card!
Put the non-SDHC SD card into your GP2X, and hold Start and Select as you turn it on. Continue to hold those buttons until the main menu comes up. (Yes, you need to do this again.)
Delete all of the files off of your non-SDHC SD card again.
Get notaz's patched firmware here.
Extract the contents to a folder, and copy only gp2xkernel.img to the non-SDHC SD card (again again ). Don't put the file in any folders on the non-SDHC SD card!
Put the non-SDHC SD card into your GP2X, and hold Start and Select as you turn it on. Continue to hold those buttons until the main menu comes up. (This is the last time, I promise. )
Delete all of the files from your non-SDHC SD card, and put all of the files that you want to use on your SDHC card.
Plug in you SDHC card, and hope/pray/whatever-you-do that you SD card works.
(Sorry if my writing sounded insulting, I tried to write it for a "real idiot". )
Dave,DaveC said:How is the speed with these 8 gig cards compared to normal non SDHC cards while reading? Try a large game in GnGEO or a MegaCD game on Picodrive where it spools from the card. Are the pauses shorter, the same, or worse?
Ed, ACMD41 fail means that the card did not return a valid response to a request for it's voltage settings (but did respond to the CMD55 call ). That's a little 'unexpected' but not unheard of.EvilDragon said:Some No-Name 8GB SDHC Card (Class 4) is not being seen.
Now, here's the output from the gp2x:
MMC/SD Card Detected
###[mmcsd_bus.c:447]->check_sd_ocr: ACMD41 fail!!!

Now, this is gonna be fun, eh?
