    Cannot print from SD card

    I have the RepRap discount full graphics controller with a Rumba board but I cannot get my SD Card slot to work correctly. I'm currently running the Marlin RC (first version) and when I insert my card nothing happens. Below is the LCD / SD section of my config.h file.

    Which MOTHERBOARD do you have defined? Presumably it is defined as Rumba. Other than the SD Memory card not being present, does the LCD Panel work correctly?

    Correct I have a Rumba (defined as board 80) set in my config.h file. Everything else works as expected aside from the SD card.

    The Discount LCD Panel board has two small ribbon cables going to it, right? I'm wondering if you have the 2nd cable plugged in correctly. Other than that, I don't have any suggestions. The SD Memory card sockets on the LCD Panels are always difficult to get going.

    Yes it does have 2 ribbon cables running to it. However, if the 2nd cable wasn't connected correctly wouldn't I have more issues with the display? Anyway, thanks for your help, I'll check the ribbons when i get home but I don't think my troubles will be solved there.

    I believe one cable is for the LCD and the other cable is for the SD Memory card. I kind of doubt it is a cabling issue, but given the two functions are on separate cables, it is worth checking. Also, doesn't the Rumba have an SD Memory card slot on the board? If so, you should focus on getting that to work first because they will share a lot of signals. If you can get it working on the Rumba, you have a better chance of getting it to work on the LCD Panel.

    Cables are correctly connected, and the Rumba board does not have an on-board SD Memory Card slot. I will keep tooling around with this in my free time but since I use octopi it's not a massive deal. It would be good to get it working in case my usb port died one day though.
