Pine Phone Doesn't Recognize New MicroSD Card
#1
I put a new MicroSD cad (class 10, 32GB bought from Pine64 a few days after i bought the phone) into the Pine Phone, executed lsblk and fdisk -l and the card isn't showing up.  The results list only mmcblk2 and zram partitions.  There should be mmcblk0.
Any response is appreciated.

Did you mount the SD card? 

What OS are you using?

Things I would try:
  • Try re-seating the SD card in the slot. Make sure it goes all the way in and you have it in the correct slot (the upper slot - NOT the lower SIM slot), and you have it oriented with the contacts facing down.
  • Is this the only SD card you have? Could you try a different card to see if it's the card or the phone?
  • Do you have an SD card adapter/reader that you could plug into a computer to see if it shows up?
  • With the back off the phone, insert the SD card into the slot, but don't push it in all of the way. Insert the battery. Power on the phone. Open a terminal. Check dmesg as you push the SD card fully into the slot (use dmesg -w)

Other details that could be helpful:
  • You haven't told us if this is an Original Generation Pinephone or a Pinephone Pro
  • You haven't told us what distribution (arch, mobian, ubports....) you are using.
  • You haven't told us what desktop environment (phosh, plasma mobile, sxmo...) you are using

@mark1250 and anyone else,
It's an original generation (but new to me) with the original software: Pine64 Pine Phone 1.2, Linux version 5.11.3-1-MANJARO-ARM.
wget output implies "error 22 whilst initalising SDIO card" and "sunxi-mmc 1c0f000.mmc: no support for cards volts".

I noticed: when I took the sd card out to run wget the devise stalled when booting. I had to do a hard reset and then turn it on again.
Also, yesterday, when I turned it on with the SD card inserted the first time the time was wrong on the screen for a giid 5seconds.

I had tried a different SD card a few days ago. It worked, poorly, at first, and then stopped completely to the point I'm at now.
