I try pic32_RTC.h with fubarinoSD, but it does not work. I soldered a quartz. In the example pic_32_RTC_Main the parameters () myRTC.time () entered, but the Serial.print (RTCTIME, HEX) remains as myRTC.time () The second is not given

Another thing, what is the library to Read/Write a sandisk micro 4Gb HC ?

I don't personally have a fubarinoSD to test on, but I am pretty sure that the secondary Oscillator for the RTC needs to be enabled in the configuration, which would require a different bootloader. I have used the RTC module in a PIC32MX7 series device but it also had access to the GSM network to update the time on power on. For chipKIT devices I prefer a separate battery backed RTC like the DS1307. I have a couple of them now that I can move between projects.

Any solution to this? Same board, no tics with crystal added??
