Trying to format a microSD card with a new operating system

Thu Oct 14, 2021 5:18 am

Using Rufus or YUMI only lets me select all four partitions of my USB SD reader (G:, H:, J:, I:) instead of letting me select the single microSD card. Is there anything I can use or do I just need to find a new SD card reader?

Have you tried the method documented by Raspberry Pi themselves?

Raspberry Pi Imager had the same thing where it lists multiple drives together. I ended up getting frustrated and tried imaging it over the four drives and it seems like it worked.
