Communicating with 2 Pmods at the same time crashes SPI bus!

Hello,

 

I am using Arty board attached to 2 peripheral modules (PmodSD and PmodNAV) to write navigation data to SD card. To do so, I am combining the C example codes provided on Github for each module, and simplified it a bit which is attached.

 

My problem is that each one of the modules are working fine individually with their own code, as long as the other Pmod is not initialized in the C code, but when I am using them at the same time it destroys my output to terminal and writes zero to both terminal and SD card. I am suspicious that the issue is because PmodSD and PmodNAV are both using AXI_LITE_SPI to talk to Microblaze, and I do not have any control on SPI bus when I am writing data. So, Microblaze does not know how to communicate with both of Pmods at the same time. Does this make sense? What is the best way to control the AXI_LITE_SPI when there are multiple modules connected to the Microblaze? I am trying to keep this as simple as possible, so I can use the example codes. Any help is highly appreciated.
