So I just bought a 128GB micro SD card for the DIY Norns I just built. I flashed the card with the disk image and now it only shows about 3GB available when I get info in Mac OS.
In Disk Utility it says it has a 45.2MB capacity. It was originally a ExFat format, but post flash it’s now FAT-32.
Am I not able to use larger sized cards? Don’t see how apps that can record audio files could really be utilized with such a small amount of available space on the micro SD card. Any insight on this would be appreciated.
Have you tried logging into your Pi/Norns with the SD card inserted (either by connecting a monitor & keyboard, or by ssh’ing in from another machine), running the raspi-config command, and selecting ‘Expand Filesystem’?
I don’t know exactly what it does under the hood (something something partition map?) but I know it was necessary both when I installed Norns on a Pi and when I switched to a larger CM3+ in my factory Norns, in order to make all the storage space available for recordings/etc.
