@DevelopNow @der-don Great that you guys got things working by re-writing the "config.txt"! Could you check in a day or two if those settings/that file remains intact?

@Ed Roket: I'm using a 4 GB "MAX 133x" SD Card. It's an 'old' card that I used before in my camera. It is for sure 2 to 3 years old. Is there an SD Card recomendation list?

Re: Turbo-mode "proof" SD card

Sorry i meant "Transcend" off course ;) So you expirience no problems with this card, with turbo-mode enabled? With this card, I *do* get corruption, even with relatively minor overclocks (eg. 750/255, see Overclocking thread), but the corruption is most apparent in OpenELEC - I haven't really seen...

Re: What are your temperatures?

I got up to 76'C from ambient of 24'C. Using hello_triangle2 running in parallel with three copies of scratch and a big wget download. That was with 1000/500/500/8 settings, plus I forced the GPU to 333. Needed current_limit_override enabled. I think you will only get higher if your ambient tempera...

Anyone else using one of these cards either successfully or unsuccessfully?

Re: Turbo-mode "proof" SD card

I did what you asked, set turbo in raspi-config and reboot with shift key pressed down. Config.txt is still scrambled.... Okay, I think your issue is not overclock related. It would probably fail in the same way if you changed other setting like overscan using raspi-config. Possibly "Transcent SD-H...

Turbo-mode "proof" SD card

With the excellent new "turbo-mode" overclocking option in Raspbian, it seems that this setting is not compatible with all SD cards. Using a Transcent SD-HC 8gb class 10 you change the setting in raspi-config and reboot, wich instantly messes up /boot/config.txt You can check this by typing; sudo na...

Re: Updating to the 2012-09-18-wheezy-raspbian image

I tried a new install on an other SD card i found, it is an older Sandisk "extreme III" 2gb... And the "scrambling" problem is gone! Turbo mode works fine, no corruption of the filesystem anymore :D

Maybe we should open a wiki section for "turbo mode compatible" SD card's?

Well all is done, removal of Mint has crippled the booting of Windblows again... :x even the Win7 system DVD could not repair the bootsector. But the installation of Debian Wheezy (testing) beta 2, re-installed Grub and Grub made Windows boot again! Where would windows be without the help of linux.....
