Have a simple question for Lexar SD card owners, especially the ones with the (1Gb) platinum model. I bought mine especially to use (ext2) in my SL6000 because I've read almost only good things about it - after a lot of bad experiences with Sandisk cards I just wanted to be sure. The only problem is...I still have problems, less, but still it suffers from data corruption etc. I've read somewhere that cards made in China are known to cause problems, and cards from Japan generally are functioning without problems. Furthermore it seems that from China comes a lot of cheap/imitated hardware lately.

Could some of you Lexar SD card owners please have a quick look at the back of your card and tell me in what way the text on your card is put? I've heard it's usual imprinted with laser, in my case it are white letters just 'printed' on the card itself (3401-1GBSB 5005C Made in China). Maybe, just maybe, my card is a fake - which would explain the errors.

Thanks in advance.

I'm using Alt Boot to load into Opie - or well, that was the plan.

I stumbled (and got stuck) upon the 'new storage media detected screen'. Now I know that usually you have to remove the SD/CF cards after flashing/before booting, but since the loopfile is on SD that is not an option.
There should be some easy trick to bypass this screen, I searched on this forum and Google but I seem to be the only one that's stuck unsure.gif
Once I remember I got past it by loading into the console instead of the GUI and killing some SD related processes, but am not sure if this is ehhh...the appropriate way...

I'm using a SL-6000/Tosa and OZ 3.5.4, thanks.
