    Hi Anders,
    trying to write the 4GB image to a 4GB-SD card I stumbled again in the does-not-fit-problem.
    Does anybody else have the same problem?
    Is there a way to shrink it to 3.7 GB by myself? Or could you provide a reduced size image?
    Thanks,
    Martin

    P.S.: No hurry, for the moment I can live with the 2GB image instead.

    Hi Martin

    On some cards I have this problem on others I don’t. But as you say yourself just use the 2GB if you run into this issue. I think at some point we will reduce the download to just one size – to confusing with all these sizes

    as the EV3 flash got just 256 kB – for what purpose is a 4GB SD image designed for anyway?
    Does it affect the performance opposite to, e.g., a 1 GB image?
    As I only got 16GB SDHC cards – would there be a meaningful use for the unused space?

    Hi Helmut

    Just means that you have more “disk” space… it has nothing to do with performance.

    would there be a meaningful use for the unused space?

    No
