Re: Transfer files to tablet brok sd card
This is not a general problem with 12.04. I boot both 64-bit Lubuntu and Ubuntu 12.04 (with common /home partition) from 32 GB SDHC card on a tablet PC with internally USB connected card slot (Acer W500P). I never had any trouble originally writing the operating system to the SD card or from files I wrote to that or another 16 GB SD card for 11.10 from the USB card reader my 12.04 desktop (including entire minecraft client and server directories) to both cards.
So there must be something specific about the USB hardware or connection method that results in the slowdown and eventual read-only. For example is the card reader directly connected to USB, short cable like 6" (15 cm) or less, or a long cable (how long)? And if [micro]SDHC what class card? A higher class like Class 10 may require more power than Class 4, although, any USB port (other than possibly on laptop or smaller) should provide 500 mA @ 5 VDC. Maybe that drops off on a battery powered computer device during extended use.
Maybe someone could find common ground on the issue from the output of lspci and lsusb or it might require digging deeper into the output of sudo lspci -v, sudo lsusb -v, and sudo lshw.
Just letting you know that it is not a general problem that most of us have not experienced. The only time I had microSD end up as read-only was when a tight slot on a card reader kept tripping the loose Lock switch on microSD to SD adapter.
