[maemo-users] [maemo-users] mmc card corrupt

Has anyone seen any problems with the beta and formatting mmc cards?
This may actually be a hardware problem with my mmc, but I wanted to check
here and see what people thing.

With the 2005 software I had a couple of directories on the card that would
give me I/O errors from both the 770 and my linux desktop.
Today I decided to try to fix that by formatting the mmc card using the 2006
beta sofware. After several seconds, I got an error that said:
memory card corrupt or unformatted

On repeated attempts, it gives no error, but then says no memory card is

I plugged the usb into my desktop, and was able to fdisk the card as well as
create an ext2 filesystem on it. I got no error from mkfs, so I thought maybe
the card was OK.
I've tried various combinations of fdisk and using the 770 to format it, but
so far no luck.
What do you think, is this a hardware or software issue? Unfortunately I only
have the 64MB card that came with the 770 because I never needed another one.
