Just for fun: trying to reach the write limit of old SD card

Sun Apr 28, 2013 11:57 am

Hello everyone,

I'm trying just for fun to reach the write limit of an old SD card (256MB) since it has no longer any use.
I can't find a brand on the card, and it's an old card that was used in an old GPS.
I hope this wil show that write limit of SD cards aren't the issue.

I've made a batch script that copies 4 patterns from my pi to the card:
0x00, 0xff, 0x55 and 0xAA, this are files of 50 MB
Afterwards I do a diff to check the differences.
My pi is always running, since there's a lot of things going on... Don't know when the card would die...

Who's interested, can follow the progress:
