I have both a mac with a dongle w/ a SD reader, and a windows slate with a built in SD reader.
I’ve downloaded Raspian lite, full, NOOBS, OSMC, and Ubuntu images so that I can play with various things. I have a raspberry pi 2, 3, and a 4.
I have very random results, but some images I have never gotten to work - do you have a best practices procedure I should follow? I get results from working as expected to just getting the pi splash screen to a dead card. It’s really frustrating as I feel it should be as simple as burn and go.
I’ve tried fast formatting, full wipe formatting, formatting to exFAT, etc - and I still get similar results.
Looking for maybe a rock-solid procedure.
Even using the OSMC provided imager, it works like 30% of the time. I truly feel like it is a SD format / set up issue.
