Full speed Bench test:
Card is 16 GB Sandisk Ultra SDHC, 15 MB/S

Settings: SPI_FULL_SPEED

How do these results look? I have nothing to compare to.
Need to get a uSD card to test the other socket.

Can't run Quickstart - it won't accept a 2 digit ChipSelect entry, it tries using 3 instead of 30.

QuickStart expects line at a time input like the Arduino IDE.  If no characters are available after 10 ms it assumes it has read the line.

No, your terminal emulator needs to send line at a time.

The Arduino IDE collects the line in the PC as you type it.  When you hit send it sends the characters with no delay between characters.  By default it does not send a new line so I just wait for no characters available for 10 ms.

I first waited for a new line but you never see one.

I made QuickStart work with the Arduino defaults so it would be easy for new users.

What are you using for a terminal?

..the speeds seems to be normal, the limitation is the spi_clk speed (max 9MHz on your board) and fcpu, sandisk is the fastest as I can see some results (see   http://www.microchip.com/forums/m574511-print.aspx    with some nice pictures on comparision of various sdcards vs. fstypes vs. spi speeds, run on pic32 - but the mcu does not matter here)..

I am using the IDE serial monitor.
Must have been the way I typed, as its working now.
Or maybe I needed one more enter to restart when it didn't work.

SdFormatter works!
Kinda disappointed - my "16 GB" card is ony 15.915GB
and only 14.8 GB in "real" gigabytes (2^32 or whatever a G is)

I feel much better about proceeding with the building of up tp 8 more on Sunday (maybe 9, If I have enough parts).

@pito,
Are the pins for uSD pretty much the same as SD?
I went out & bought a 2GB uSD card. It works in the adapter it came with in the SD socket, but does not work in the uSD socket.
I am starting to think the eagle library is not correct.

Here's the way the library has the pins - yet on the SD card, the pins are more or less flipped the other way,

You guys ok with just one working SD socket? I am pretty sure the library for the uSD has the pins swapped end for end.

Can anyone confirm?

Here's a blog with definition of the pins.

I know I could be shot for pointing this out, but if the iossue is that the pins for the uSD card are hooked up backwards, well that's fixable in software (DUCKING)...

Ha ha, never thought I'd hear that from a software guy! smiley-lol

But in this case, sadly is not true.

Here's why:
Needs to be, What it is
1 NC            NC
2 NC            Data Out
3 CS            GND
4 Data IN      SCK
5 +5V           +5V
6 SCK          Data In
7 GND          CS
8 Data Out    NC
9 NC            NC

Everything comes from hardware SPI tho, so it can't be faked in software.

Oh that's a shame, so you need new PCBs. That sucks. But hey, how many designes work ont he first try?

Oh wait, was the problem that the lib is wrong, or could it be that Eagle didn't mirror the bottom layer when you made the gerbers?
