Anyone used a DUINO on the Electron.

Post by Dethmunk » Mon Aug 20, 2018 4:29 pm

I'm looking at this DUINO, which apparently can run .euf files from an SD Card now. It basically replaces a Cassette Player.
Now apart from coming with absolutely nothing, no leads, no instructions, not even a leaflet telling you what each port does or what leads to use, I cannot get it to read an SD Card. Does anyone have any idea how these things work and what SD Card is best to use and in what format? FAT32 or ExFAT or NTFS?

I've tried formatting in NTFS and ExFAT neither seem to work. I'm either not using the right 'kind' of SD Card or it needs FAT32 which I can't format in as I'm using Windows 8.1. Also I noticed an SD Card I used to be able to access (for my GoSDC) can't be accessed now. I suspect a Windows update has killed that option. AARGGH! :evil:

Also to load a game you'll need the ear cable in instead of mic I think.

^good spot Si =D>
MIC is to record out elk, EAR is out to LOAD in elk! :o

try FAT or FAT32 with this prog : https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/
might get your goSdc going too!

Note : did notice that V5 does not work on winXP, but V4 does :?
