Question about Intel Motherboard
The multi slot usb card reader or usb cord if attached to phone and computrer both dont read the memory card. it says I/o error
Posted on Sep 23, 2008
Here are a few possibilities to check: If you previously accessed, mounted or formatted the memory card while in root (Linux) or administrator (Windows), and are now trying to mount the card in some regular user account, you may not have sufficient "privileges" to mount the memory card.
Also, the format itself is VERY important with memory cards. For example, if you previously formatted the card in windows, and used a format unsuitable to the card (or the slot/reader) this will cause an i/o error report. Most memory cards below 512mb need to use FAT12 format (old DOS format). Most cards above 512mb work best with FAT16 format, but SOME can use FAT32. Some new, rare mobile phones can use NTFS media, but most card readers cannot use that format, and many cards will be unreadable, possibly even permanently damaged if you try to format them as NTFS or eclectic/now useless Mac HFS or HFS plus.
So check your phone specs, the computer's card reader specs, and the memory card specs, to make sure you have not created this type of problem. If so, mounting the card in Linux (as root) will usually allow you to identify the format if it is unconventional, and utilities there will let you repair it.
