Incompatible SD-Cards

Honored Contributor II



I have tried to prepare a new SD-card and I ran into a problem: 

- I use the Socrates-board 

- I have used the image from the website (socrates-training.tgz) 

- The SD-card was prepared on different Linux-PCs (Ubuntu in VM, Ubuntu on Microserver) 

- The SD-card was connected with a USB-to-SD-adapter (Transcend) 

- The script was running with success 


When I install the SD-card in the socrates-board, nothing happens.. 


This was reproducible with two SD-cards: 

- Transcend 8GB, SDHC, Class 4 


With the SD-card, shipped with the Socrates-board, everything is fine, but this is the same card, but another supplier: 

- Toshiba 8GB, SDHC, Class 4 


When I use another Transcend-card, it works also: 

- Transcend 16GB, SDHC, Class 10 


Is this a known issue? 


Thanks and best regards,
