This sounds similar to my problem I posted to the list at the first of the year.  That thread was "MMC Read only" or something like that.  I'm running OS2007HE on a 770 and my 2GB MMC card suddenly went Read-only.  I blamed it on the kernel not being patched with the improved driver (your OS2008 wouldn't suffer from this, I think) but it actually happened one more time after patching, so I never determined -for sure- the cause of the problem.

To fix it, I had to run nkdosfs from my laptop on the memory card to reformat it.  I ended up with only 1GB of space on the card, but I attribute that to it being a cheap card from Hong Kong that likely wasn't 2GB in the first place.
