Re: Uzebox Quick Start

New problem, it was working fine until today for no reason I can see. It will not work while an SD card is inserted, showing a blank screen, and gives the usual SD init fail when it isn't. I tried reformatting the card to no avail.

Re: Uzebox Quick Start

I finally got it to work, I had to hold in the SD card with a goodly amount of force for the list to populate. Is there a contact that's not touching when it "clicks" in?

Re: Uzebox Quick Start

I got the socket in correctly, but the bootloader still says no SD card and there is a flashing red line now.

Re: Uzebox Quick Start

There's no response between pin 6 on the atmega and pad 2 on the SD leads. All the others you noted give a reading. Is that my problem?

UPDATE: It was. I'll pop back in later after I test it out.

Re: Uzebox Quick Start

I just got a multimeter just checked all the resistors and SD socket leads, and it gets a reading on all of them, but it doesn't beep with all of them, even though the needle moves. The only pins from the SD socket I get no continuity from are the first, third and last pins from the left. Is the soc...

Re: Uzebox Quick Start

Just read this somewhere else in the forums that a file called "mmc.h" needs to be on the SD card to initialize. Is it available to download here or should the SD card just load the games without any extra files on it? All the solder joints are fine.

Re: Uzebox Quick Start

Are the ISP header and the SD card socket pins/paths connected at all which could have caused a short? I touched up all the solder leads on the board but the SD card still won't come up. Also, is it possible to open up the game source code in the Arduino IDE? I can toy with code in avr studio, but I...

Re: Uzebox Quick Start

The card comes up on my computer with all the preloaded games. I'm checking all the contact points again to make sure everything is connected. From looking at the schematic, the only other components that could be messed up are one or more of the 6 resistors that come from the socket. One contact fr...

Re: Uzebox Quick Start

I did manage to get the SD card socket flush with the pcb, but still no luck. I also went over all the resistors from the schematic. Could it be a software issue instead?

Re: Uzebox Quick Start

Thanks, I'll get on the painful task of un-soldering the ISP header to check the other side of the SD card socket, mine has tabs on the side closest to the edge of the PCB. Would an improper solder on that one side cause the SD init to fail? One more thing, is it possible to flash the games to the u...
