Hi I’ve just received my Pi Zero kit and am eager to get tinkering however I’ve fallen at the 1st hurdle :(.
I set my Pi Zero up on the tv and it was fine, booted as expected. Next I decided I wanted to load the sdcard with a premade Rasbian/Retropie image from the Retropie site so before doing so I decided to format the disk.
I opened the disk in my computer(win 10) used right click to select the format option of the context menu. After lets say 20 minutes there seemed to be no progress I then found that the formatting app had locked and became unresponsive so I used the task manager to kill the formatting tool.
I have tried again and again with the windows formatting tool to no avail. The official sdcard formatter I downloaded from the SD people also becomes unresponsive and freezes as does a CMD window running windows diskpart tools.
Have I borked my sdcard on the 1st day? If so how exactly? If not how to I format the little fella?
