Hi,i need to send my pandora back but its going to be around two weeks to test and repair my unit and i really don't want to be without my pandora for that lenth of time so i am asking if any you guys have any other suggestions that i could try on a software level to see if i can infact get my card to read on slot2.
I am asking partially in a desperate attempt to fix this without sending it away but also because i found that my other sd card,a micro sd 16gb card was formatted and working in sd slot 1 but just today it stopped working in slot 1 but would still load up fine in windows and also that card shows up on slot1 if i hold down the right shoulder button at boot to flash the pandora firmware,so i think something strange is going on that my cards are just vanishing.
Mabe my cards are not formatted correctly
Mabe the old id for those cards are somehow not showing up in the OS
Mabe i am really unlucky and my cards have been damaged ????
Mabe my pandora has some crazy hardware fault
This is going to sound daft ... so forgive me in advance
My first pandora had a similar issue (since then it has been exchanged for a different reason altogether)
Slot 1 i had an 8gb microsd with adapter / slot 2 I had a 16gb sd
I noticed that taking the 8gb out and in, after a while it would not recognise it (but my pc would). So i just started using it in slot 2 ..
By mistake i put the 16gb (ie different sd card) in slot 1 and it was happy.
now the daft bit ... it was almost like somewhere on the os it had stored a blacklist of the SPECIFIC card on slot 1 becuase all other worked ??? I put it down to not being able to mount and unmount
In your shoes I would.
1) Apply Hotfix 3. Presume you have done this (some fixes on sd)
2) I would reflash completely, to try and flush the "memory" of the card
Sorry paddy just read the whole thread and saw you have pretty much tried everything i suggested
