128GB eMMC Card won't work with PC

Post by Sailor »

Good morning all,

On the 21st December I bought a 128GB eMMC (Red) from Odroid UK.

Got home last week and came to try it. Was going to add Voodik's 18.1 to the collection!

But the card won't work in any of three Windows PCs (all running Win10). However all the other eMMC Cards do.
Put the card into an N2 and it does seem to work there.

Sent the follwoing to Odroid UK:

Good evening,

On the 21st December you sold me a 128GB EMMC Module. (Invoice 134902)
I got home last week (Stuck at sea due to the plague) and tried the module yesterday and today.
It seems to work fine in the Odroid N2, but I cannot read it with with any of three different Windows machines. All the other cards from you work fine both in the readers and in the odroids.

Do you have any advice on how to get this to work?

Thanks and kind regards

Hi Robert
Sorry you are having issues with this eMMC card.
We have checked the forums and there are no recent posts regarding this issue.

I am a little disappointed as this card is brand spanking new and this is it's first use.

Can anyone advise how to get it to work?

Thanks and kind regards

Can you try this to flash your 128GB eMMC using ODROID-N2Plus itself?

Odroid mentioned recently that the 128G emmc doesn't support 4bit sd transfer mode and doesn't work with the sd-emmc adapter. On the N2 you can flash it inplace by going to petitboot and selecting shell -> ums /dev/mmcblk0

I have to thank you guys.
It would have taken me ages to trawl through and find that.
Makes one wonder why anyone would sell a kit of an SD Card adapter and an eMMC that don't work together...
Thanks again,

Happy and gratefull sailor!

Tried it, and finally got there.
Had to upgrade Petitboot. Didn't realise that the VU7 wouldn't work with the upgraded Petitboot. Thought I'd bricked the N2.
Noticed that Num Lock and Caps Lock worked on the keyboard and tried another monitor.
Great Success!
Flashed Voodik's 18.0 and it's up.
Thanks again guys for your timely support.
