Hello,

This is a repost from the OE mailing, as nobody could help me there, at least until now.
I have a 256Mb SD card that has worked well on my 5500, until recently starting giving errors. Using it on my laptop (with a usb sd card reader) it also fails when doing a lot of reads. So, I bought a new card, a 1Gb card. But...
It's a 66x card, made by integral (www.integralmemory.com), and even though it works perfectly on my laptop, accessing it through a usb reader, on the 5500 it won't work at all. I've tried different partitioning schemes, file system formats (vfat, ext2, etc.), but I can't even write a partition table to it on the 5500.
Using a OE generated oz 3.5.3 (20050306) the first error I get after inserting the card is "mmcda:<3>sd : cmd [ 12 ] response [ 3f ]" and then a lot of errors as the z can't read boot sector and/or superblock from the card, so can't mount it.
I've also tried reflashing with sharp's rom, oz 3.5.1, 3.5.2, etc. and it didn't work.
Is my collie defective, is it sharp's binary sd driver, or what? The SD card works well on my laptop, and I just tested it on a friend's ipaq, and it also works well there.

Thanks, it is a different problem. My sd card doesn't even get properly detected, the errors I get are kernel level.

Looks like the theory on different brands is quite correct!
