    It really sounds like the SD card might be faulty. Can you try another one? – Elliot Alderson Feb 8 at 21:43
  • A. It sounds like the SD was either defective to begin with, or is damaged now - I wouldn't put it into any electronics you don't want damaged. B. It is quite likely the PI is now also damaged. What you describer sounds a lot like a short-circuit in the card. If you have a multimeter - you could try using on cards contacts in short-location mode. Also, what brand is the card, and how sure are you it is not a counterfeit? – Ivan Koshelev Feb 8 at 21:52

    your post is like my car is on fire, so i moved it to another garage, but it is on fire there too – jsotola Feb 8 at 22:03
  • @jstola - I've heard of cascades of dead PCs where a faulty video card was tried in several other machines to 'see if it worked' in them. It didn't, and neither did they afterwards. – Michael Harvey Feb 9 at 20:27
