Issue 77: Cannot access SD card

Reported by Mike Riley, Jun 12, 2010

I had inserted a 4gb SD card and was able to use it just fine.  
After turning the machine off and back on I can no longer access the 
SD card.

Thanks for reporting this.
Which software are you running (OpenWrt?). You can see the version 
with cat /etc/VERSION. Have you reflashed to the latest version?
Do you have another microSD card to compare with?

Version is 2010-01-13.  I do not have another micro SD card to try.  
I can manually mount the mmcblk0p1 device and then can see the card, 
but it will not be mounted on power on.  Initially for the first 
couple power ups after inserting the card it was automounted, it is 
no longer.  Even adding auto to the fstab will not automount the SD

I apologize for the delayed response.
We just released a new OpenWrt image, 2010-06-15. Lots of fixes and 
improvements, so I think we should update your Ben. What do you 
think? Have you read about reflashing?

just installed 2010-06-15 yesterday.  Same problem here, SD card 
(4GB,vfat) is not auto-mounted.  Manually logging in and mounting 
from the command line works, though.

Mounting does neither work if the card is inserted before boot, nor 
when I hot-plug it during operation.


PS: the firmware image installed before was the one that my nanonote 
came with, when I got it at LinuxTAG (this one had no gmenufx GUI).  
That version did sucessfully auto-mount the same SD card.

 the NanoNote will not mount sd card partition when boot.
yes it will auto mount when you replug in the sd card.

if you want automount sd card partition when boot.
please edit /etc/config/fstab in your NanoNote.
