To prevent failures from shutting down abruptly, I always type sudo shutdown -h now. On this occasion something didn't work for me and I had to simply unplug the Raspberry Pi.

Now I get a this error:

mmcblk0: error -110 transferring data, sector ______, nr ___, cmd response 0x900, card status 0x200b00

enter image description here

Of course tried searching for the error code and wondered if my card is dead. It is a verified SD card (16GB by Kingston). Is there is a tool that would allow me to use it again?

I have completed full format of SD card and I wonder if my SD card is likely to be working fine or is inevitably corrupted. In each case I would like to know how to extend it's life/probability of success.

  • Despite all the horror posts on this Forum, SD cards are not that fragile (at least the quality cards). There may only be a couple of cells damaged. Just reimage and try again. – Milliways Jan 12 '14 at 23:16
  • I removed the section about the warranty of the SD card in my edit. Customer support would be a better candidate to ask that. – syb0rg Jan 13 '14 at 5:40
  • Thanks for edits - now it is much more clear. As an excuse: I was editing post couple of times, attaching photos, referring to links, etc.. – Mars Robertson Jan 13 '14 at 13:00

    I'm curious what's wrong here as well; I'm having the same issue. I hope you found a solution – audiFanatic Jul 11 '14 at 17:21
