The microSD card stores various types of data, such as keys, cards, remotes, databases, and more. Flipper Zero supports microSD cards of up to 256 GB, but a 4 GB microSD card is sufficient to store all the necessary data. Keep in mind that the process of mounting a microSD card with a high storage capacity may require additional time.
For more information, visit the MicroSD card setup page.
Unlike modern smartphones and computers that use a high-speed SDIO interface, Flipper Zero uses a slower energy-efficient SPI interface. Despite being slower than SDIO, Flipper Zero's SPI interface can read data at almost 400 KB per second, which is sufficient for the device's tasks.
In case you see the message above on the screen after inserting the microSD card, it may be due to one of the following reasons:
- The microSD card doesn’t have an SPI interface. -> Try using a different microSD card.
- The microSD card has a file system other than FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, or exFAT. -> Format the microSD card.
- There is no file system on the microSD card. -> Format the microSD card.
- The microSD card is damaged. -> Try using a different microSD card.
