yes, my SD card gets crazy hot, as well as the board.
If I unplug it, the board works fine.
I did buy it for like 2 bucks off Amazon. Might just be a cheap card.
However, if it isn't, how can I fix it?
please share board, SD card, power supply and your wiring.
Espruino original board, 1gb cheap sd card, phone charging cable as power supply, and nothing connected to board besides sd card
if this works "PC USB - cable - Espruino board" than I guess
then wiring to SD card module is wrong
or the SD card module is broken
Ups - are you using the internal card module ?
That's a bit worrying - I've never encountered that before.
Does the card work if you plug it into a PC?
By default, the only thing that's connected to the card is the 3.3v power line and GND - so assuming there's nothing obvious wrong with the Espruino Board (like a short on the contacts sticking out of the back of the SD card holder) then I'd say it would have to be a problem with the card.
Could you have accidentally connected it improperly previously?
SD cards are very easy to trash if you abuse them, and often fail acting as if Vcc and Gnd are shorted.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
