    Just thought I’d share my experience with the Sony sd cards for retropie…I’ve made many retropie gaming consoles for my friends and family, and the only ones I ever get back with corruption problems are the black Sony ones. Does anyone have a list or know of any proven compatible sd cards for retropie? I’m pretty sure sandisk, SCT, and Transcend sd cards are good, so long as they’re class 10.

    I have a Sony 32GB micro SD card which is tempermental. It runs and boots fine when it is cold, but – reboots are a headache. For some reason, if you let it set for 5-10 minutest, it boots perfectly. My other card is a 16G Sandisk (both of these cards are class 10) and I have no issues with it whatsoever.
