Anyone has any ideas, besides buying a new machine?
Maybe a quick check to see if the SD slot is broken or just a firmware bug ?
You could use a 1GB SD card and load it with the latest Bebook one firmware and try if it will read the firmware and wants to go update. (make sure you get the right firmware bebook one 2009 or 2010 edition, whatever bebook you have)
If it reads the firmware, the slot isn't broken, then an update might be usefull.
(could be tricky, you never know if it will finish on a not so stable SD slot ....)
If it doesn't read the SD card, you know it is hardware failure. Then you could check if all the pins/contacts inside the SD slot are oke (e.g. not bend or something like it)
