Tsunami WAV trigger SD card confusion

Post by Geek Emeritus » Sun Jan 06, 2019 3:22 pm

from https://robertsonics.com/tsunami-user-guide/
Up to 4096 tracks can be indexed and started with low latency (typically 8ms) using either 16 programmable trigger inputs, a serial control port or a dedicated MIDI port.

All .wav files must be located in the root directory of the microSD card.

Tsunami plays “.wav” files stored on a FAT16 or FAT32 formatted microSD card.

FAT Root Folder

The root folder contains an entry for each file and folder on the root. The only difference between the root folder and other folders is that the root folder is on a specified location on the disk and has a fixed size (512 entries for a hard disk, number of entries on a floppy disk depends on the size of the disk).
my SD cards fill up at 166 files, 87 mb, but I can put hundreds of files on the disc when I use folders.

how do I get the remaining 3930 files on the root of the SD card? do I need FAT32?
