I am running smoothieboard 5X with viki2 LCD, with latest (sept. 20th) edge firmware.
I have configured my external SD card according to the panel page of the wiki and I have read the External SD Card section.
This section specifies that the SD Card must be removed when powering on the board, since the bootloader doesn't like external SD cards. My problem is that is is recognized only if the SD card in inserted then the board boots.
When I insert my SD card before powering on the board, everything runs smooth, I can access both SD cards ( sd/ and ext/ ) and all the sub-folders, files etc.
However, when I first power up my board and then insert my external SD card, my board freezes for a minute or so. When it comes back, the Play menu shows both sd/ and ext/ but I can access only files in sd/ (sd card on the board). It freezes for a few seconds if I try to access the external card sub-folders.
Having to reboot the printer every time we need to insert an SD card is not very convenient and it is probably not a wise solution since the wiki recommends not to do so. Where should I start looking to solve this issue ?
