On a quick look you are copying some data to cardTab_detail->itemcode which is a pointer to char. Unless what you are trying to copy there is a char * that operation will cause issues. Compile your program with debuging symbols and no opitmizations (that means "-g -O0" gcc options) and run it with gdb. when it segfaults run backtrace. That should give you some more insight.
