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


ikr, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any
activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If
so, could you please test for this with the latest development release
of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com
/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a terminal, as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux REPLACE-WITH-BUG-NUMBER

If reproducible, could you also please test the latest upstream kernel available from the very top line at the top of the page (not the daily folder) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested exactly shown as:

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil
icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description.

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's
Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your

  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".
