Can The C700 Kill An Sd Card ?
« on: January 10, 2005, 01:13:11 am »
Heh..

Got me a new C700, installed cacko, love it.

I got a new toshiba 1gb SD card, works fine on pc and the zaurus.

3 days later, the zaurus keeps hanging on me, a reflash didnt work.

I plugged out the sdcard and it worked ! (grrr), plugging it in my pc detects as "no card detected"

So its busted, going for a 1-1 replacement later.

Just wonder, has anyone managed to kill a SD card before ?

OK, this is really bad..

1 weeks after I got my toshiba 1gb SD card replaced, its dead AGAIN. (After 1 week of normal operation)

Gonna get it replaced and maybe use it on my notebook/pc. Gonna try out other brands of SD.

Did you format your SD card with ext2?

I got 2 dead Panasonic 256 MB SD  and one dead Kingston 512 MB SD on my Z's.

All three ext2 formatted.

Now I do not format any SD-Card with ext2 any more...
