Comment 11 for bug 275345

This bug is still present in the Intrepid release (2.6.27-7-generic). My SD card mounts fine (hal auto-mounts it), I just can't format it in gparted, probably because fdisk -l doesn't show it.

parted + select /dev/mmcblk0 + print shows the following, if this helps any:

Model: Unknown (unknown)
Disk /dev/mmcblk0: 2007MB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: msdos

Number Start End Size Type File system Flags
 1 131kB 2007MB 2007MB primary fat16 boot

Mathieu, I'd say there is a separate problem with your partition - perhaps you could try using "sudo fsck -a /dev/mmcblk0" to fix the errors or reformatting it using parted?
