With the new driver (fantastic, btw) I've been using an 8 gig sandisk class2 sdhc card in my z3200 for the past couple months without a hitch.

Until now.

I can't fathom why, but I am completely unable to write to or delete files from the sd card when it's in my zaurus. In my netbook, piece of cake. I tried rebooting. I tried flicking the switch back and forth. I unchecked that box that said "protection" in the files menu. I even went on windows and un-archived, and un-read-only'ed every file and folder just for kicks. No soap. I can read files, no problem. But I can't save to or edit anything on it.

And if it's a hardware issue, I can't wrap my head around it--I put in a 2gig non-sdhc and wrote and deleted sans trouble.

I'm on Cacko 1.23. Any thoughts? I'd greatly appreciate it.

Could also be file system corruption on that particular SD card. Linux will mount damaged filesystems as read only. Did you try running a filesystem scan in windows on that card to see if it was able to fix anything? That doesn't explain why it works fine in your netbook though.
