problem with detecting SD card using 'periph_sdmmc' and 'app_sdmmc_meas' examples

Hi there,


I am the happy owner of the EA1788 board. My simple project is to build a web page where I will be able to upload a file to an SD card which I put into the slot on EA1788 board.

The setup includes 1GB MicroSD in adapter and half of the LPC1769 board: LPC1769 LPCXpresso Board | Embedded Artists AB as a debugger.


I started by examining the LPCOpen 'periph_sdmmc' and 'app_sdmmc_meas' examples which are those dedicated to LPC1788.

The first example describes how to use the SD/MMC interface with an SD card and an FATFS filesystem

and the second measures the performance of SD/MMC raw read & write operations.

Everything should work but it doesn't. 


In my opinion, the SD card is not detected.


I went through the forums and what I found is not quite helpful:


I tried with FAT16 and FAT32 turning DMA on and off.


Could anybody help me with the issue, please?
