Write to SD card fails
I am using Sandisk 2GB micro SD card on ARM processor EP9307A.
The card is detected , mounted.
I can read data from the SD card.
But cannot write to it.
There is no error when I attempt to write to the Card.It appears as if its working fine.But after umount and re-mount , the data written is gone.
Here is the log when the SD card is detected:
# insmod drv
card size = 1977614336, sector size = 31, wp_grp_size = 127, wp_grp_enable = y
What is the significance of Write Group Protect Enable (wp_grp_enable=y).
Is it the case that the SD card is write protected.
Using CMD9 : SEND_CSD , I can read the Card Specific Data (CSD).
I have tried CMD27 : PROGRAM_CSD , to CLEAR wr_grp_enable : No effect seen.
I have tried CMD29 : CLEAR_WRITE_PROT ,: No effect seen.
Where is the issue,
1. I could not send commands properly.
2. Card cannot be set free from WRITE_PROTECT.
3. Some thing else
there is no protection switch on the card? Did yo try to connect it through sd adapter (sd adapters have this switch).
... the idea is that the write protection is "permanent" - i.e. you should not be able to just disable it.
From the Sandisk multi-media card manual 126.96.36.199 [pdf]:
It may be that there is another partition on the drive - the write protection is not supposed to be for the whole card. With in mounted: fdisk -l
