Writing Files to a micro SD card

Can anyone suggest an alternative to Etcher for writing files to a micro SD card? I’ve had numerous attempts with Etcher including running as an Administrator but it keeps failing.

Many thanks

How does it fail, specifically?

Win32DiskImager if you are using Windows.


I’ve used Win32DiskImager for many years and in some ways I prefer it to Etcher.
Ignoring that, Etcher works fine for most people, so if you are having repeated fails, it looks like something else is going wrong.
Do you have a different SD card to try?

I have had times where the SD card can’t be written to and I’ve assumed it to be corrupted (power fail maybe).
I have been able to resurrect some cards using SD Card Formatter from SD Association

Many thanks, that’s worked fine
