already had this three times this week. after formatting as exfat and fat32, using a 32gb or 64 gb card, the 32gb or 64gb pi front end image says it is too big for the sd card. i've bought three sd cards, all are the same. is this a waste of money, or am i doing something wrong? please help!

a cpl different things could be going on,

 

the first, and i hope its not the case, but you could have knockoff cards, that arent really as big as they say they are..(significantly smaller)

does the 32GB image fit on the 64GB?

 

the other thing, is, a 32gb card isnt really 32 gb, so if the image is a true 32gb in size, it wont fit a 32 gb card with out shrinking the image,

They are 100% genuine Sandisk Micro SD Cards from Amazon. Why offer a 32Gb front end image if it’s not intended for a 32Gb SD Card?

hey buddy,

 

super simple 1st only use samsung cards as they have way more wiggle room when formatting.

also down load a free program called " MiniTool Partition Wizard "

use that to fully format to FAT32 only.

I was there once bought all different brands and had the same issue… its very annoying esp when you spend a ton of cash.

 

really hope this helps

Good news, managed to install a 16gb image to the 32Gb Sd Card. It must have ran out of room. My next problem is roms, my personal roms won’t transfer to the pi, it says its out of room. A 32Gb Sd Card with only 16gb of image. ?

I’m having this same issue, downloaded the 32gb Raccoon image for 3b/+ and it won’t flash to my 32gb micro center 10 sd card. Is it the Micro Center card? Please help! Also would really appreciate a link to a very detailed post on how to resize the image (brand new to Linux). Thanks!
