NFC Tags can't be written

    Hi guys!
    I got my OPO yesterday. Love it so far!
    However, I've also bought some NFC Tags too which I wanted to use for switching profiles for example. I've bought a small package of 5pcs 512byte NFC Stickers but the OPO says for each of these Tags that they can't be written to. I've tried almost every app from the play store as well as the built in functionality. Nothing worked. I do not have any other NFC compatible phone here to test the tags with so I want to ask you guys if there're any known issues for NFC Tags combined with the OPO? The tags I had bought use the Broadcom 512 Topaz NFC Chip - if that's of any use.

    cheers,
    Holger

    OK, I've now got me an old Galaxy Nexus and that one could erase as well as reset and/or write to the tags I bought without ANY problems. This means to me that there's at least some kind of incompatibility between the OPO and these tags... any suggestions or tips which tags to chose that might work with the OPO?

    This is actually very weird if you ask me..
    I think I can't really advice you anything except just buy all different sorts on ebay(just cheap ones) and see which one works ...

    I guess so - problem is the OPO won't let me - no matter which app I try, I get the info the tag ain't formatted but I can't format it with the OPO.

    Guess I really will have to try some different brands. Not sure if Amazon.de offers Tagstand but I'll try these. If anybody here already owns an OPO _and_ has a suggestion which Tags definitely work - just let me know.

    I'm pre
    I'm pretty sure TagsForDroid are universal. Check them out, idk if they are in the german amazon though. Good luck.

    If you really need to use them, some sites sell pre-formatted nfc-tags

    Did we ever resolve whether the OPO is compatible with Topaz-chipped NFC tags??

    Can't really confirm Topaz chips work...

    I had ordered following two types of Tags which proved to work:
    • NXP NTAG203 chip
    • NXP NTAG216 chip
    Chips from Topaz I couldn't get working.
