I recently updated ApolloOS r6 and Core r6 but I cannot write to the sd card?

I don't see why it doesn't work, on Coffin no problem.

The SD card needs to be properly formatted (FAT32) and the device name needs to be SD0.

For detailed instruction please refer to:

I followed the procedure for the Sd card on mac, but it doesn't change anything.

I am using a 4 GB Sandisk micro Sd.

Read-only micro Sd card issue resolved.

I followed the procedure posted on the link above for Mac, I don't have a PC at home.

Finally I have Vmware installed on my Mac with Windows 7, I tried with Rufus and the problem was solved.

So for Mac owners with a Vampire, install Vmware or Parallels Desktop or other, and use Rufus to format your micro Sd cards as described on this link, to be able to use them on your Vampire.

The procedure works with Mac, I made a test before release with Willem (same problem, no write,  for one of my old sd card)

You say you made it with your Mac?

what Mac OS are you using?

I use High Sierra and Big Sur.
