    Thanks, Eli. It is the FAT-16 format that I missed. I will keep trying alternatives~appreciate the helpful tips.

    SD Card requirements

    So I have been using pretty inexpensive 2GB SD cards made by "Transcend." They work great in the Gen2 RFID Reader board, and are easily read by the SD slot on my Mac. But when I go to try to connect them to my iPad (using this little lightning-SD interface gem), it turns out the card doesn't appear to have any data. When I use the card in my SD slot on my Mac Powerbook, no problem - data are all there. So then I tried using a different SD card (64GB SanDisk Extreme Pro) which is easily read by the iPad and the IMEEK interface adapter. I know this because I can see photos that are stored on the SD card. But when I take the SD card and put it into the Gen2 RFID reader, and test it out, nothing gets written to this card. Upshot: One card can't be written to by the Gen2 RFID Reader, but can be read by my iPad. The other type of card can be written to by the Gen2 RFID Reader, but cannot be read by the iPad. Wondering if anyone has advice on a type of card - or a formatting - for a card that will solve this incompatibility?
