Re: Cloning a 16GB Class 10 SD card

It seems that Windows is generally not able to recognize more than one partition on a SD card (removeable media).

Win32DiskImager writes raw data, like 'dd' in Linux.

The Kingston 16GB car was even worse that the ones I normally use.

So shrinking the partition is needed. If only 'Partition Magic' still existed and could cope with Linux Partitions ! *LOL*

You're likely to find that even two Kingston cards that are ostensibly the same, aren't.

Kingston (as with a great many brands) doesn't manufacture what goes into their cards like, say, SanDisk does, so two seemingly identical Kingston specimens are probably completely different internally, leading to the same result as you've already experienced.

I've been having good results with the 'Paragon Backup & Recovery' tool (free version) for cloning Raspbian images in Windows. It's pretty fast, creates compressed image files, and deals with the problem of different cards being different sizes.

I've recently had the same problem with Lexar Patriot 32GB SDHC. Darn!
