The error when install the raspberry pi
48 views (last 30 days)
When I install the Raspberry Pi package, at the write firmware step a error happened. The error is : Error writing firmware to the memory card: An error occurred while writing to the SD card.
Is anyone meet this problem before?
How to solve the problem?

I had the same problem using Windows 10 and Matlab 2017b. I do not know what caused it, but I was able to stop the error from occurring by using SDFormatter ( https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/ ) to reformat the SD card first, then using the Matlab Raspberry Pi hardware setup wizard.

I had the same problem , I did a lot of wrong things but here is how it fixed :
1- run matlab as administrator
2 - OverWrite format the SD card with SD Card Formatter [it's a software]
3- follow normal steps
I did exacly as I wrote and the problem went away . [there was another problem after that , that was not connecting properly with LAN but I did the steps again and it was ok]

The error is not descriptive enough to diagnose what is happening. General trouble-shooting steps when writing to the SD card are:
1. Start MATLAB in administrator mode. 2. Check that the lock switch on the SD card is in un-locked position. 3. Make sure that SD card size has at least 4GB of storage space.
If you perform the above and you still get an error, try using a * Different SD card * Different SD card reader/writer

I got the same problem. I´ve tried with two different SD cards 16GB (Sandisk Class 4 and Lexar SDHC C10? 100x )
In addition I´ve also tried with the integrated SD car reader/wrtier of my laptop, and another portable USB card reader with no result (only the same error message: An error ocurred while unlocking the SD card volume. )
Could be a problem with the format type of the SD card? Any other suggestion?

I solved this issue by ensuring that the drive letter associated with the empty SD card is the same as the drive letter of the boot partition of the SD card after writing.
