is the resistor network needed if you use the waveshare version sd holder? or do you need only the connectors highlighted for virtual pinball?

No the resistors are builtin. Did you look at their website or the link to their schematic? I think that is pretty clear.

Yes only the highlighted connectors. Do you understand enough about what you are going to build to be able to build it? What happens when something doesn't work?

I have fixed a couple of problems on my first PCB and I have made it available in this append for anyone who wants it. As a reminder the "*ONLY* change is the addition of a SMD socket for the micro SD card and a SIL resistor array. If you are not familiar with SMD soldering then I would use the original PCB design. This PCB design has no warranties and you should verify before using it.

Can the SDCARD module like the V3 shield be used?

It is a lot easier to find and much cheaper than the waveshare unit

No because it only supports 1bit serial SPI connection while the Waveshare supports 4 bit parallel SDIO connection.

If you want to have it cheaper use the slot directly soldered to the pcb like Mike did above

here I have just mounted one.  assembly time entirely with the tests 2h30.  It's only 20 minutes longer than with a v3 so everything is fine.

I added a alternative layout which uses a cheaper chinese SDIO capable SD reader. The layout has not been tested by me but should work.

does it matter if its a arm 4 core? i bought another one of the Nucleo-144 boards, butits a arm 7 and it doesnt seem to be working. i have done a few using this exact model NUCLEO-F429ZI and it is now out of stock , but the one i just bought is a NUCLEO-F767ZI and the status led for programming is flashing red.

Only NUCLEO-F429ZI and NUCLEO-F439ZI are supported
