If you were already past the black screen / white screen and replaced the card, then something went wrong in the magic memory mod itself. It might do that if your card was partitioned using GPT/EFI but that's highly unusual...
it definteley happened post card swap Initially I though it's taking its time re-formatting the new 32gb sd card, and then I thought it's taking time copying back from RAM. Seems like nickel failed to start....but what is nickel ??

Anyway using the usbit and the magic partition option was easy and at least give me a backup copy of my image to store for ever

Troubles

Hello, I am having trouble writing to my brand new 32gb class 10 card that I am replacing the 4gb with.
I can write to it if I put it in my SD card reader in the microsd -> SD card adapter with the lock set to unlocked.

But when I put the microSD card into my microSD card slot, I am getting a CRC error 32 in the USB Image program. But there is no way to slide the lock on the microSD card to unlocked position... So how do you write to a MicroSD card without using an adapter that allows you to unlock it?

Thanks

@p1r473: I'm not sure what you mean by microsd lock. microsd does not have a lock. If it did and was locked you could not copy new books onto your reader either. Maybe your card is defective, or your card reader / SD card adapter / imaging program is faulty.

If you're open to alternatives you could use my Magic Memory Upgrade Mod. It uses only the Kobo itself to upgrade the memory. (You'll have to copy your books back onto it afterwards.)

SD card does have a lock- see:
http://www.instructables.com/id/Remo...n-a-Micro-SD./

But I dont know if this is why I get the error. All I know is it worked when I put it in the SD card adapter. But putting it in the microsd slot alone, I got the error.

Full size SD cards have a lock, but MicroSD do not. If you see MicroSD as being write protected, it's a faulty cardreader, bad card, bad partitioning/formatting, a filesystem permission issue, or the OS fooling around with you.

I'm not sure what your issue really is - it's normal for Kobo microSD card to not be mountable in Windows because it uses two partitions Linux filesystems on them. If windows asks you to format the Kobo card, say no.

I followed the steps exactly.

I even wiped all the partitions on it so it was completely blank. No partitions. But still when I tried to use the usb writer tool on it I got that error.

I am only able to copy onto my microsd card when using a SD card adapter and I cant figure out why this tool gives this error when not using the adapter.

A CRC error does not mean the card has a write lock on it. It means that when the software did something and compared the result with the expected, something didn't match In this case, you can write to the card using one device, but you get an error when using a different device. That suggests that the second device is faulty. Just use the one that works.

They are the same device. Its just it only works when inside the SD card adapter. When I take the microsd card out of it, it errs.

In that case, I don't know what you are doing. It sounded like you are mounting the micro SD card in your computer in two different ways. One is via an adapter in a full size SD card slot, and the other is in a micro SD card slot. If that is the case, and one way works and the other doesn't, then one of them is broken and doing the wrong thing.

Or have I misunderstood what you are doing?

I just tried the procedure and didn't succeed.
Minitool Partition Wizard detects that the file system of the partition has errors (error code 12) and can't extend the the partition.
Does it mean that my original Kobo SD card is corrupted? If so, how to solve the problem? I'm working on a PC.
