Notes on SD Card

The camera fails to work with some SD cards. I tried to use two identical micro SD cards by Transcend and in both cases U-Boot failed to properly load my kernel to the RAM. U-Boot complained that the CRC sum of uImage did not match in 90 percent of attempts. Well, there were a few successful tries actually but they were very rare.

Here is what a boot log looks like on a failed attempt:

The card that I tried to use was a 16GB microSDHC I, C10, U1 class card, Transcend TS16GUSD300S.

However an older 8GB Transcend card with only C6 capability worked perfectly. Also 16GB Kingston C10 cards work as well.
