Title: micro sd card issues
Post by: tmoney_wizfan on May 25, 2008, 04:49:24 pm
Hello.  I was wondering if anyone else was having problems with microsd cards on vector.  I have two microsd cards that I am reading in using a usb connector with a micro sd slot in it.  One card is a 1gb sandisk and the other is a 2gb kingston, both microsd.  I can read both of them and see their contents, but I can only write to the 1 gig.  I have both of them set to read and write privileges, but I can still only read+write to the 1 gig.  Could it be the size, the brand, the system???  Anyone else ever encounter something like this? It's pretty frustrating.  Help!

Does one of them have a program that when you insert the USB stick on say a Windows system loads something called erm, let me check my USB..

*checks USB*

U3 smart?

I think you have to disable that if you have it or something like it. (It's like a USB manager thing that automatically loads on windows based systems.)

Edit: Noticed its a card not a stick.

I only own a 1g card but never had any problems with it. Try the following steps and post the results here.
Code: [Select]
open a terminal and become root via the su command
tail -f /var/log/messages

insert the card
do this for both cards
