Hi, just a quick observation from my side that could possibly be related: Until yesterday, my 4GB SanDisk card worked fine with a recent (e.g. 2008-07-22 or 21) kernel - after an opkg upgrade this morning that got me a new kernel I was surprised to see the card not beeing recognized anymore -

Hi all, I can now reliably reproduce the issue, as dd'ing the mbr back to the card so far restores sane behaviour : If sd_drive is set to 0, then after a resume from sync apm -s the MBR of my 4GB SanDisk is wiped - so far I haven't noticed any other errors, but have not looked very closely. To

Hi David, After the the card settles (see above in this thread), i can do the following: 1) fdisk -l /dev/mmcblk0 Result: error ... No matter how often I call this, it never changes as the MBR is completely zeroed out. To re-ead the partition table just start fdisk /dev/mmcblk0, verify

Hi Andy, sd_drive setting isn't actually used until next time we access the card, so provoking an access will do it, eg, touch /something ; sync. Good point, but now it is getting really strange (all with sd_drive=0 prior to suspend): Adding a touch /media/mmcblk0p4/suspending and it works,

Hi Nicolas, search the list(s) or the wiki for the various parameters in ( I think ) /sys/module/glamo_mci/parameters/ : It boils down to either setting idle_clk=1 prior to suspend to avoid getting the MBR trashed, and/or reducing the sd cards max speed on bootup to get the card recognized
