Hi, I have bought a Chipkit Wi-Fire board and I am trying to use the micro SD port, I am using a Kingston micro SDHC of 16GB and the latest version of the MPIDE. However when I insert the card in the port and use the SD.begin() from the example it always fails. I have already change the CS pin to the pin 52 and go through the libraries but still cannot fix this problem. Can you help me please?

Best regards

Which version of which IDE are you using?

I was using the MPIDE-0150, however I have changed to Arduino IDE + chipKIT core and now it is working (link below).

Best Regards
