So, I had 2 kingston SDHC 16 gb cards. They used to work fine on my raspberry pi B until there were a few power outages. When I used them on my computer or video camera they work perfectly fine. But whenever I try to re-install Noobs 1.4.1 on them for my Raspberry pi B, I get these errors seen here.

Is the card somehow corrupt or is it the Raspberry Pi? if the card is corrupt, why does it still format and function properly? Is this version of noobs incorrect for the B?

  • Looks like it got corrupted. 1. You can try scanning it with e2fsck and fsck.fat on a linux box. If it doesn't work. 2. Try re flashing back up image or fresh image of noobs. – dhruvvyas90 Jun 26 '15 at 5:57
  • @dastaan I don't have a unit that runs linux, when I scan the disk on windows: i.imgur.com/rEnSCjc.png Also I've formatted and reinstalled a new copy of noobs many times with the same results. – Sickest Jun 26 '15 at 6:10
  • The problem is that corruption is in its rootfs and windows can only access its boot partition and not ext partitions. However, since you've formatted it, it should work fine with fresh copy. Not sure what's going on. – dhruvvyas90 Jun 26 '15 at 6:20
  • You say you have formatted and reinstalled many times. What commands did you use to format the card and reinstall? – joan Jun 26 '15 at 8:00
  • If the exact same thing keeps happening after you've reinstalled the OS, with multiple SD cards, there is not much you can do. If you get a linux VM (virtual machine, you can run it inside windows) or live CD, you could check the filesystem before and after with e2fsck to see if it really is corruption. Note the author of the duplicate said the problem was fixed by using a better power supply. – goldilocks Jun 26 '15 at 10:25
