It seems like the tablets are plagued by similar -but not necessarily the same- issue.  I had something similar happen with my 770 a while back, and I've seen other posts to this list the gist of which, at least, is basically the same.

Were you writing data from your pc to the tablet's memory card via USB when this happened, or downloading via network?

In my case, it was while downloading an album or two worth of mp3 files.   After being mounted read-only, the tablet rebooted.  I put the card in my laptop, copied the data, and reformatted the card.  I haven't had any problems since, but I do worry about it.

As a side note, what would the proper way to format and prepare these cards be?  Especially if one has used the card in a different system (a phone or mp3 player) and want to make it more maemo tablet friendly.
