Card Read Not Ready error

My MegaSD has started acting up. At the menu screen it displays CARD READ NOT READY. If I restart it over and over and over again eventually it might read the SD card, if it's able to read the card it will load a game and play without issues until the console is powered off.

I've used this cart a handful of times so far, it would boot flawlessly up until today. Tried a different sd card, same result.

is the SD card formatted FAT32 or exFat?

The card is formatted exFat. The 2nd one I tried out of my everdrive is Fat32.

I had a similar problem. Make sure your card is formatted with MBR (Master Boot Record) partition table. I use a Mac, to change the partition table use the erase the disk but the default is a GUID partition table, change the dropdown there too MBR. Not sure about Windows. But I tried both FAT32 and exFat with Guid and both failed. I tried FAT32 (MS-Dos Fat on Mac) and exFAT with MBR with success.

I resolved the problem myself by switching to a new SD card, I was using an old 32GB I had lying around.

Thanks for all your help, Terraonion support /s
