Arduino SD_MMC example vs IDF SDMMC example (one works, one doesn't)

Postby JeffWilliams » Sat Feb 10, 2018 3:56 pm

Hello,

I am trying to add some SD Card capabilities to a project and recently tried the example that comes with the IDF (update to date MASTER IDF). No matter what I did I couldn't get it to work.

Code: Select all

I (0) cpu_start: Starting scheduler on APP CPU.
I (259) example: Initializing SD card
I (259) example: Using SDMMC peripheral
I (259) gpio: GPIO[13]| InputEn: 0| OutputEn: 1| OpenDrain: 0| Pullup: 0| Pulldown: 0| Intr:0
E (349) sdmmc_cmd: sdmmc_read_sectors_dma: sdmmc_send_cmd returned 0x109
E (349) diskio_sdmmc: sdmmc_read_blocks failed (265)
W (349) vfs_fat_sdmmc: failed to mount card (13)
E (349) example: Failed to mount filesystem. If you want the card to be formatted, set format_if_mount_failed = true.
I have pull-ups (they are on my SDCard breakout), I checked their resistance and configuration. Nothing seemed to help. I even adjusted the code to not use the ESP32 board pull-ups.

After my experience with my I2C BNO055 where the IDF i2c scanner fails to see it but an Arduino I2C Scanner code works fine I thought I would try the Arduino SD_MMC example. No change to board config, all I did was compile and flash.

The Arduino example works perfect. Which makes me think there is nothing wrong with the hardware side and I am missing something on the SW side. But I would expect the IDF example would be correct software wise. Not sure I want to dig through all the Arduino code to find the difference. Therefore I have adjusted my project to use Arduino as a component (since WIRE and SD_MMC work for some of my modules) though I am still interested that the IDF SD card example (basically the reference implementation) fails. I would actually prefer to just use the IDF without additional Arduino component if possible.

Seems I got the IDF version of the code working. How? I changed the card brand and type. My initial tests were with a SanDisk Ultra 32GB card. It formated using Windows SD Formater utility and ran under Windows, Android phone etc fine. I could create files using Arduino.

I had thought maybe it was the card so did swap it with another but all my cards are the same SanDisk Ultra items.

While was out today got a lower class Kingston 16GB and IDF code worked first time.

Here I am replying to my own post again. So even the new card I got to work for 1 set of tests is no longer working. I have moved to just using the IDF unit test app to test. I have 3 SD Cards and 2 different SDCard slots connected.

Probe for 4-bit and 1-bit work fine and get card details correctly:

Code: Select all

 Running can probe SD (4-bit)...

Maybe 1 out of 20 tries the"can write and read back blocks" [sd][test_env=UT_T1_SDMODE][ignore] unit test works and passed. Sometimes it fails right away, sometimes it fails after a few blocks.

Sometimes it's a 0x107 fail result as above. Other times it's a 0x109:

Code: Select all

Anyone have the SD Card functionality working reliably? Have any pointers?

Thanks, Jeff
