Hi

I just recently bought a Rasp PI 400 and have tried a couple of 16/32GB RetroPi images. I then got hold of a 64gb MicroSD card and tried to installed a 64GB RetroPi image. I can’t do this because it’s telling me my 64GB SD card does not have enough space.

What are my options to get this working on the 64GB SD card.

Don’t know if you’re still looking for a reply to this, but I had the same problem, with 128Gb images not fitting onto a 128Gb card.

It seems the issue is with the cards themselves being slightly different capacity depending on manufacturer. It appears the Sandisk / Samsung UltraXD cards that are recommended for these images have a slightly bigger capacity than other lesser know brands.

I bought 2 x 128Gb and 1 x 256Gb Integral Cards for my projects, but every time I went to write the image, it would say the cards weren’t big enough, even though they were legit, and brand new. It was something like:
“Image size 226484, Storage space 224286” – don’t quote those figures, but it was along those lines.

Now, the chefs make their images as close to the knuckle as possible, and so they’ll only fit on a specific card, I’m guessing the one they’re working with – It would make more sense to me to make the images just that bit smaller, to give them better card compatibility, but hey, what do I know?

There is another workaround, which is to further shrink the image, so it fits onto your card, but that’s not always an option for everyone. I know I myself have wasted so many hours already just trying to get the pre-built images to work, I’d never find the time to shrink, rebuild and create my own custom images, but each to their own.

Anyway, hope this helps a bit for you, in case you were still trying to find an answer.

an age old problem, firstly you dont pre-edit images, they wont work, the only real answer is go bigger on the sd card or use the exact card used, unfortunatly we are not always informed what that is, once on a bigger card you could chop some roms out and shrink it down to a smaller one

chinese cheap/fake cards have less space than the original cards, even a few GB, R/W speeds are also slower than the original ones. I was buying cheaper cards and had similar problems.
