A funny thing happened on the way to copying a file


#1

Yes, so, um I called File.Copy…it hung forever and when I rebooted? The entire SD card was wiped.

This is certainly a new one for me. Anyone else run into this sort of issue? I was using a 4GB Kingston SD on a Raptor.


#2

How big was the file?


#3

The file was tiny. A couple of KB.

No repair options here. That was the first thing I tried, laptop told me it was blank too. Not corrupted, just blank.


#4

I wonder if that is related to the size of the card issue that was discussed some time ago. Something about wrong type used and an overflow.


#5

That’s my thought too. I’ve since switched out for a 500mb card. Coping the same file seems to work just fine. I am noticing copying a couple of meg seems to take forever.

@ Skewworks - Never had that problem. Maybe the SD is damaged somehow. Have you tried a replacement?
