I bought SanDisk Extreme 8GB 30MB/s class 10 BI1118216254G
(of course you can't know serial number unless you open box and get card in your hands).
R-Pi behaves the same with and without card. Power red LED is on but no activity on green LED. Monitor is blank
I used Debian Squeeze from download section and also updated version from GitHub.
There are other not working cards reported with similar serial number BI*****16254G (btw. can anybody add mine SN to not working cards list?)
[My R-Pi is tested and working fine with 8GB MicroSD HC class 10 card form Adata.]
My questions are:
- was anybody in the same situation and managed to work this out?
- is there any hope that after doing something my card will start to work?
What to do now? Go to shop, buy another one, test is. Then go to shop, buy next one, test it? It is waste of money!
Opened and used SD cards can't be return to shop.
PS: On veryfied cards list I see that thare are many Kingston
cards reported as working (even 8GB class 10!) and only one reported as not working. Would you suggest to start buying Kingston cards?
