    Man this is frustrating! 🙁

    I have a Pi3, latest build, 32GD SD Card (formatted to FAT32) and am using Wifi.

    All is good and after 1/2hr or so, I loose Wifi/Max2play disappears.

    After that Max2play does not boot (the image is corrupt or the card is full)

    I have ensured I am expanding the files system, but do get an error doing this from Max2play, so think that may be the issue.

    I have been working on this problem for more than a month, have tried multiple settings and I continue to get the same thing each time.

    (I have configured several Pi2s with a Wifi dongle and NEVER had this problem)

    ANY ideas suggestions would be very much appreciated

    Hello Fredly,

    Which power supply did you use?

    Thanx Christoph for getting back to me, I was giving up hope.

    I use a fairly good Power Supply that is available locally, it can be found here.

    Micro-USB Power supply – 2000mA, 5V – UL Listed

    Again, I have a lot of experience with setting these Pi’s up with Max2play, so this is VERY frustrating.

    Is there a log file that would assist me in figuring this issue out? Just Curious.

    Hello Fredly,

    Please use not less than 2500mA. The wifi dongle need additional power.

    Thanx Christoph but…I’m not using a wifi dongle, but rather the internal wifi in the Pi3.

    And….when I did several setups a few months back, with Wifi Dongle and a Pi2, the above Power Supply worked just fine.

    So…I still need a more powerful power supply if I use the internal wifi of the Pi3?

    Again, is there a debug log that I can review after the crash to see/diagnose exactly why it crashed?

    Thanx so much for your help and any additional guidance you can provide me, to stop this silly thing from happening.
