XIAO Round Display Not Detecting SD Card

After blowing away my libraries, and starting over, I was able to get the display to function again.

Still no luck getting it to see the SD card, though.

Using the “Hardware Test” example as-is, I have no issues aside from not detecting the SD card. the “tf-card” switch is on initially, and then 7 seconds pass and it switches off. (The 7 seconds is the hard-coded timeout in the example).

Switching to the “TFT_eSPI_GifPlayer.ino”, I get a boatload of errors if I do not include :

The SD Card is formatted FAT32, has a single directory named “gif” on it, and the gif file inside is 1.5MB in size.

I’m at a loss as to what to try next to see why the SD card isn’t being read.

Hi there,
I see it has multiple SD lib’s , ANYTIME I have had that the SD fails in some way. Fix that.
does the RP2040 have enough RAM, etc to doit?

I’m sure you have seen this anything there different besides the obvious?

I removed one of the SD libraries, it didn’t like that, so I put that back and uninstalled the SD library from the Library manager (1.2.4 by Arduino and SparkFun). It compiles again, but still can’t detect the SD card.

I imagine if it didn’t have enough RAM, but the SD card could be detected, I would be getting different behavior.

As I said before, the HW test, the “tf-card” toggle turns off, which I understand means no card was detected.
The TFT_eSPI_GifPlayer example just has flashing text showing “INSERT SD”.

Hi there,
Hmmm , For sure? I would look at the names of the pin defined for SD card Chip enable.
Use the port number instead , or the physical pin number, try those… Your close.

The RP2040 has 264KB of SRAM, and I’m using a 24Kb gif, if it can’t handle that, this may be all for naught.

I changed the PIN that SD uses (Seeed documents the SD card slot uses D2, D8, D9, D10). Hardware Usage | Seeed Studio Wiki

I don’t get the “INSERT SD” error using other pins, but the board also ceases to function after the SD timeout happens.

I REALLY think there is a manufacturing defect with the batch that i have i got three round displays in the same shipment and only opened one and kept the other two for safe keeping… i just opened the second box and got the same effect. I can run the sketch on XIAOSAMD and Expansion board and sd card and no problems but put the same in the round and no go… so i dont think their can be any software reason… it has to be hardware… only thing i can think to do is try to test probe from the sd card back to the XIAO header pins, but i dont have good enough eyesight for that

Hi there,
OK , so then that makes sense plenty of sram, I find this from the wiki
microSD card slot on Round Display, the chip select pin should be D2
D8,D9,D10 are the SPI port portion Can you check the D2 line with meter or If you have a PPK2 use the logic analyzer probes.


Have you tried and earlier version of the BSP instead of 3.6.3 ?

.

I don’t get this schematic of the RP2040


Pins don’t match up?
So, I just compiled the code you posted Above , Cut and Paste,
compile gave me D2 not defined , Hmm There is NO D2 on the RP2040 , It’s A2
put that in and it compiled first stroke, complained about the touch screen stuff. but completed
That’s first thing so do that , and say what happens. (if it doesn’t work then ,
Then look at the schematic and change the SPI defines to match the PIN numbers.)
It should work NO problem.

:person_fencing: even the schematic calls it “A2”


Seems to be the analog vs digital pin.

I did try A2 instead, and while it compiled, it still doesn’t see the SD card.
I know the SD card is good, but I’m starting to wonder if it has something to do with the specific type I’m using.

can you say the production date on the sticker on the back of the box it came in. round display

05/23/23 is what is printed.

Hi there,
Yep , eliminate the basics first. I’ll assume you tried the port number as well p"28"
Here’s what I used for both demo’s Nrf52840 & ESP32C3

5/5/23 here too!

I would take a stab at setting the SPI pins MOSI , MISO, Sclk. and print them to the serial port first to see what they are currently set to.

Serial.println("--------------");
  Serial.println(SS);
  Serial.println(MOSI); // master out, slave in
  Serial.println(MISO); // master in, slave out
  Serial.println(SCK);  // clock
  Serial.println("--------------");

Post the results.

interesting my are 4/24/23

do you know of any way to see all the #define in a code at compile?

Unfortunately I’ve not had any luck getting my serial monitor to print anything yet.

Figured it out. I wasn’t monitoring the serial port…

SS(31)
MOSI(3)
MISO(4)
SCK(2)

Hi there,
Ok so, Then…
Those are almost correct, for an Xiao RP2040

I would do something like this.* #define SS 28
first then go all in.
Try that?

// Map SPI port to 'new' pins
#define PIN_SPI_SS    (28)
#define PIN_SPI_MOSI  (3)
#define PIN_SPI_MISO  (4)
#define PIN_SPI_SCK   (2)

static const uint8_t SS   = PIN_SPI_SS;
static const uint8_t MOSI = PIN_SPI_MOSI;
static const uint8_t MISO = PIN_SPI_MISO;
static const uint8_t SCK  = PIN_SPI_SCK;

For grins , Try the Name of pin as well, i.e. A2,D10,D9, D7

I tried that, and got compiler errors, indicating the pins are already defined.
Tried going to the pin definition file, changed the pin number, but unfortunately no dice.

I also tried just copy/paste the pinout you provided, and while it still compiled, I get zero output now.

I tried just changing the SS pins to 28, but also no luck.

It seems it has two different SPI_SS pins defined, but it’s labeled as not pinned out:
#define PIN_SPI0_SS (31u) // not pinned out

// Not pinned out
#define PIN_SPI1_MISO  (31u)
#define PIN_SPI1_MOSI  (31u)
#define PIN_SPI1_SCK   (31u)
#define PIN_SPI1_SS    (28u)

I’m very new to all this, so I appreciate your help with figuring this out.

Hi there,
No Problem, I don’t have that MCU or I could help better , But you are close.
My example wasn’t the correct syntax for your scenario,
So
Here is what it should be:

// Map SPI port to 'new' pins
#define SS 28
#define MOSI 3
#define MISO 4
#define SCK 2
Serial.println("--------------");
  Serial.println(SS);
  Serial.println(MOSI); // master out, slave in
  Serial.println(MISO); // master in, slave out
  Serial.println(SCK);  // clock
  Serial.println("--------------");

Try that and LMK
GL :slight_smile: PJ

can you post the whole code your using (with these edits)and also the last 20 or so lines of compiler output?

At least you confirm it’s using the PORT numbers for pins. that’s progress, LOL
the NOT pinned out info is when they are NOT defined in the pins file.
