New SD card won't auto-mount, will only mount as read-only
#1
I just got a 256gb, off-brand MicroSD card (it's actually Onn brand, which is a Walmart generic brand). Anyway, I formatted it on my computer, and everything seemed fine. But when I put it into my Pinephone, it won't mount. I can only mount it like so:

Code:
sudo mount -t ext4 -o ro /dev/mmcblk0p1 /storage/0000-0000/;

And if i put 'rw', it won't mount. It says 'bad superblock'. This is no matter how many times I reformat, if I recreate the partition table, If I disable journalling. I have even formatted it from inside the pinephone and it won't mount. Does anyone know what I can do to make my card auto-mount, and make it writable?

Sounds like the SD card is defective.

Yeah. I'm just going to mark this as solved because that is the most likely answer. I'll just return it and get a higher-quality card.

I have the same problems with USB pen-drives or sd cards from the grocery store and I don’t know what it is; they never work.

Thank you PineTeam for your outstanding work!
