I do not mean to sound insensitive to your situation or to come across as flippant ....el cid ...

But ..
Have you considered an android phone as an alternative?
Because...your n900 appears to be doing everything it can to stop you from using it.
Have you two had a falling out?
Did you say something to it and hurt it's feelings?
Because I am sensing that it is mighty pissed off at you ...
And is getting back at you for something you did or said to it...

I think you need a "Maemo Whisperer"....
To calm it down...


Actually...
all you have done is just post a couple of links...
No one has any idea exactly "what" problem you are having with your card slot...
if it is even a problem with the slot...
you could very well have a problem with your system identifying the card...
you could very well have a card that is faulty...

Are you using a card that is known to play well with the n900?

Have you looked at the list of "problem free card types for the n900" in the wiki?

Have you tried a few different cards in your n900?...
that you are certain work?...
just to narrow down the possible culprits and verify that the card slot "is" the problem...and not a faulty card?

Lotta questions need answers before just posting a vague "Help me! Something is wrong!"

You're right. I needed to sleep for a while.
I write it to see if something interesting was written.


the mobile I bought its second-hand, and is the first time I insert micro sd in it. they have 2 weeks on my hands. I reflashed it with pr 1.3.1. the card is 16gb and on my tablet with windows 8 it works. on my android phone too. i go to install nitdroid and try.


put any other ideas here

Not a problem man...
I know it is a scary thing when a device doesn't want to work proper...

Now ...the card type and brand...
First explore that...

Just because it works fine on another device doesn't mean it will on the n900...straight out of the gate.

http://wiki.maemo.org/N900_Accessories#Memory_Cards

And if your card will work...then...it is possible it may need formatting...

I would also try a known working card type...as well...just to check that it is the card....and not the system or the slot that are the issue...
Then it is easier to narrow the problem down...

there are a few things to check before beginning to worry about the card slot.

Well now...
Should work...
May need to format it.
I suggest using the methods suggested in the wiki...

In fact you should be making the wiki your second home ...to talk Maemo...
So grab your sleeping bag...a comfy pillow...your favourite slippers ...hot chocolate and cookies ...
Settle in and start reading.

well if you have read all you can and nothing seems to fit your issue...

you have tried and tested in the n900 card slot other different cards that you know work fine ...right??

and the cards you have tested were formatted properly ...right??

If testing different cards in the card slot results in the same result...
It could be something os related possibly...

But you have installed regular old fremantle and you have no issues with the os ....right??

I am imagine that there is some terminal command on your n900 you could do... to test the card slot

I have n900's and know enough to get by...
But ..
I specialize with n800's and n810's ...
my forte isn't the particulars of the n900.....purely general and basic concerning the n900...
So I cannot say that any specific prompt I could suggest would be successful....
Diablo and Fremantle aren't the same OS beast...

Better if someone here knows the n900 inside and out ....
and chimes in with answers in that regard...

Having exhausted all other avenues of possibility ...os and card ...wise ...
It may very well be a physical issue...
I had an n900 with a sd card slot issue that WAS a physical issue with the card slot...
The contact pins inside the sd card slot were not making contact...
So it is possible...
that your problem may be the contact pins inside the sd card slot itself...
The contact pins may be sitting too low to contact the card to read it...

you could try to VERY VERY gently lift the sd slot contact pins a little bit...
If they do not stay up..possibly taking a very thin piece of card and placing it underneath the raised pins may keep the contact pins elevated enough for a continuous connection..

It may enable the card to contact the pins properly so that a good connection is made to enable reading of the card...

Those are 2 good physical solutions to a issue related to the sd slot contact pins being the culprit...
But be careful and gentle..

If it is a physical problem...
and not os related or the card itself...
and it is indeed the card slot...
Then..
That is your next best option..

If it is the connection of the slot itself to the board...
That is a whole other issue...
and replacing the card slot with a new one...or at least repairing the connection between board and card slot may be necessary...

That is the best I have to suggest at this moment..
I may come up with a few other ideas possibly...later...
And..
I am sure others will weigh in on possible culprits and possible solutions...

In my experience if the card works withother machines and is a clean fat32 formatting it is that the magnet that hlods the little kickstand around the camera apeature is missing. It also activates the hall sensor which sends the command to mount the SD card and unmount it if the cover is removed.
