NUC8i7BEH SanDisk Extreme 400GB A2 not recognized.

NUC8i7BEH SanDisk Extreme 400GB A2 not recognized.

 

I recently purchase an Sandisk Extreme 400GB A2 Micro SD card from Amazon. It worked in my Compulab Fitlet 2 under Mint Linux, but will not work on the NUC under Mint, or CentOS 7. The OS comes back and says Error -110 which means card defective. I have re-checked with other machines and it still works fine. Is this a BIOS support issue, or other NUC hardware compatibility issue?

 

Card is

SDSQXA1-400G-GN6MA SKU 6 19659 16569 7.

According to the Compatibility site, the largest microSDXC that has been found compatible is 256GB. I cannot find any place where they document a maximum size, however. Intel Customer Support will need to ring in here if they know of any limitation.

So I found a slower 400GB SanDisk MicroSD card, and the nuc recognizes it just fine. Wonder if there is a diffrence, I'm sure there is. It sure would be nice to use the faster card for a staging area when backing up with Amanda etc.

We found that the Secure Digital eXtended Capacity (SDXC) format, announced in January 2009 and defined in version 3.01 of the SD specification, supports cards up to 2 TB (2048 GB).
