[Bug 113552] Re: SD card is spontaneously unmounted when files are copied to it


[Sorry for multiple comments]

I managed to copy the files to the same card using Windows 7, to discard
hardware error.

>From Ubuntu, as reported above, the copy starts and after a few seconds
the card just gets spontaneously unmounted.

  SD card is spontaneously unmounted when files are copied to it

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have this problem in Ubuntu Desktop 7.04. Here's how it happens:

  - I insert a 2 GB SanDisk SD card into my laptop's built-in card reader
  - It appears a sa "NEW VOLUME" item on the GNOME desktop
  - I click the item and see the files on the card
  - With dragging-and-dropping, I start copying a few 30 MB files to the card
  - In the middle of copying process I get the message baloon at the bottom right saying that device was unplugged, and that's a bad thing to do. That I should use safe removal insted. BUT: I did not touch the card.

  So, what I do is copying files one by one, unmounting the card after
  each file, and mounting it back. Then, eventuallly, I manage to really
  transfer the files to the card. However, often this also does not
  work. A file does not appear on the card after the "safe removal".
