Can't seem to create SD card
#1
After repeated attempts I have been unable to create an SD card for my PINE64

Pheonix card gives some weird error, So tried WindiskImager it fails.... Pulling my hair out. 

Using Windows 10 PCs

FYI I have been able to create bootable cards for multiple Pi's, PCDuino's and others without a problem

Did you check the md5, maybe your file is corrupted. Try downloading a new image

What is this weird error exactly ?

Also make sure that you dont try to create a card with Phoenixcard using dd images, or using dd/win32diskimager/etcher/pibaker with Phoenixcard images...
Come have a chat in the Pine IRC channel >>

Now Pheonixcard shows success but the SD card is still blank when done. And putting it into the PINE does nothing.

Shouldn't be this difficult

Well looks like this thing will take it's place on the shelf with the other non-functioning boards. At least until there is a way to put an OS on it.

By blank do you mean that Windows does not recognise the content of the microSD card? If so, this is because Android (and Remix and Ubuntu, I believe) uses an ext4 file system, which is not natively recognised by Windows and so the card will appear to have nothing on it.

Inserting the card into the Pine64, you should get some result, though. So it may be a power or video issue, rather than a microSD card issue.

Shouldn't be power issue as I'm using the supply from my Lattepanda. They provide a very good usb power supply and cable with their hoard. I do have one Linux computer here I can try to create the card with. I've made quite a few sd cards for pi and pcduino without issue using windiskimager

I've had no problems creating both linux and android images using win32diskImgr. I was going to try the phoenix card tool but have yet to see a need to do so.

If you've had no problems creating other images, I'd suspect either a corrupted download, or something going astray as you extract the image.
