So I bought this 16gb Sandis card, swapped it for the 3200's internal microdrive. Used it for a day, no prob. Then something happened don't know what, and the card wouldn't work, the Z was locked.

So took it out again, and now I can't mount it / see it, on any computer that I've tried.

This is what dmesg says:
CODE
Jul 13 16:01:36 debian kernel: pccard: PCMCIA card inserted into slot 0
Jul 13 16:01:36 debian kernel: pcmcia: registering new device pcmcia0.0
Jul 13 16:01:37 debian kernel: pcmcia: request for exclusive IRQ could not be fulfilled.
Jul 13 16:01:37 debian kernel: pcmcia: the driver needs updating to supported shared IRQ lines.
Jul 13 16:01:37 debian kernel: Probing IDE interface ide2...
Jul 13 16:02:07 debian kernel: hde: no response (status = 0xd0)
Jul 13 16:02:42 debian kernel: Probing IDE interface ide2...
Jul 13 16:02:42 debian kernel: ide2: Wait for ready failed before probe !
Jul 13 16:03:18 debian kernel: Probing IDE interface ide2...
Jul 13 16:03:18 debian kernel: ide2: Wait for ready failed before probe !
Jul 13 16:03:47 debian kernel: Probing IDE interface ide2...

and so on...

How can I fdisk the card if the need, assuming I can't fix what's wrong? I'm really at odds end here, have got this 16gb card and no way that I can think of how to use it.

I think Trisoft experimented with swapping the MD for a CF card and went through a few CF cards and couldn't get one to work on a long-term basis (see this thread: http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=23002 ). It is possible to get a CF card working long-term (some successes have been reported), but you may have to go through a few cards. In the end I don't really think the speed increase is worth the risk of CF card destruction, but that's just my opinion.

I would try reformatting and repartitioning the card and try again, but your card may just be dead. sad.gif
