Compatibility (EN)

chaimpeck edited this page Jan 16, 2019 · 290 revisions

This is a project led by several members of the community to share all the peripherals that work "plug and play", and peripherals that do not work.

Feel free to add or edit this page to create a compatibility database for RecalboxOS!


Overall most branded SD cards will work with your raspberry pi. If your card is larger than 32GB, check this link.

But beware of counterfeits! (especially on Aliexpress, Ebay, Wish and LeBonCoin websites and sometimes even Amazon)
