|4gb formatted in fat32 and 4gb formatted in ext3 so no problem there. But what do you mean a limeted number of read/writes? is this a built in limitation or a device 'fault' (service life)? Seems pretty silly since most e-book readers have internal flash drives (usually micro sd chips like this one) and are constanly using them with every boot for data storage and retrieval.... |
However, I'm beginning to think that may be the problem. I can read from it all I want, but can't write to it, can't delete the files, can't reformat it, and it, even using gparted in linux often says success at removing the partition, then displays an unchanged partition when the process is complete. Does this mean the software seems to think it worked, but fails to complete the final write back as the last step? Grrrrrr, if so, I'm going to be stuck replacing the darned (being very polite here) chip every few months.
