Sdcard not formatting..

Recommended Posts

Hi again... Im posting this issue to get some reply about a original sdcard i've used to install armbian to an orange pi device,.. as told before i flashed armbian on it an it just worked fine.. but i need to erase/format now and in any partition type it'snt working.. i've tried this o a windows machine and on a linux machine.. thats it.

i couldnt format this 8gb sdcard in any partition type.. (on a windows machine i've got a warning concerning its protected, but on a linux machine no warnings just doesnt work)..

Can someone tell me how to format this sdcard?.. (there is armbiaN for orangepi win plus on it)..

Thx a lot..

Board: Orangepi PC+

The supported way is to use Etcher, where you shouldn't have to worry about partitions nor formatting, AFAIK.

 

Maybe double check the links in my sig.

I found Etcher,.. and run it but the sdcard is locked.. itsnt instaling nor formmating..

Etcher don't need to format sdcards. If Etcher produce errors, maybe you should throw that sdcard in the trash bin ... :P

Can't even trust Amazon any more, either, IMO... I had good results so far with "real" stores like B&H, NewEgg, Micro Center, etc...

 

This is assuming US of course. Substitute whatever reputable "brick and mortar" electronics / computer shop you have in your country...

 

Then as soon as you get it, do tests as outlined in links in my sig...
