to write the raspiblitz image i was using etcher v1.5.71 on linux (5.3.18 kernel on manjaro) to write to samsung 16gb evo micro sd card. the write operation completed successfully, however any further operations on the card was impossible.
So i thought, well sh** happens. and picked a second card same model to write the same image, but this time on windows (win10 1909 - etcher installed w/ chocolately). the write operation completed successfully again, but any further operation on the was impossible again.
to be honest, i won’t try a third time to destroy another card. I tried to write the image w/ rufus, and the card still works…
i don’t know if it is ether, or the model of image and card combination but never had 2 working cards borked so close to each other - why can’t be just a hard coincidence.
maybe somebody else who has some spare cards, can try & confirm. in case you need additional info, please ask.
btw: tried the recommended solution to recover cards but no luck.
