    SteveSFX replied to a thread SD card on a 4.0 in Project Guidance
    Thought I should update on this thread. Been working a lot of hours, so only got back to it this morning. DEAD. Teensy 4.0 appears to be zapped and I have no idea why. Barely anything on the breadboard. So, I...

    I am completely re-breadboarding the whole project, and drawing the circuit diagram as I go to post here. I decided maybe the better option was to utilise the SPI1 and SPI2 ports on the Teensy 4, but now not so sure...

    OK. I thought I was explaining my issue well enough, but I will endeavour to draw out the circuit later tonight and put that up. To be fair, this thread is the whole project and not just this issue! I will return

    It would appear that this flash IC is not behaving at all. All connected with a 10k pullup on the CS pin. All OK. Connect the SCK and the bus freezes. I'll grab some more 10k's tomorrow and look at that thread,...

    OK. I will grab some resistors in the morning and have a go. It must be the flash acting up, as the SD and screen play together fine (well.. that's my logic) Thanks

    My concern is that it causes issues with any one of the SPI pins connected. Surely that would not be the case?

    OK. SD card and filenames all sorted. Binned it all, found another system I have used before and we are all working. Gave up on the new screen library. The one I have works, so I will stick with that.
