Help with a MicroSD card problem on Rock 64
I recieved my Rock 64 yesterday. Using a Windows laptop, I downloaded a couple of images for the Rock 64
I formatted a MicroSD card with SD formatter, then burned a image, using win32diskimg, all in windows {using a usb sd card reader/writer}.

It all went great, plugged the card in the rock 64, and booted up, no problems.

Here is my problem ... once I put a microSD card into the Rock 64, and boot it up .... I can no longer put that Microsd card back into the usb stick, and have it recognized,

I plug the usb stcik into the computer )windows, or Rock64 .. they recognize usb reader/writer, but not the MicroSD card inserted into it.

I will note, when I take the microsd card out of the usb stick, and put it back into the rock 64, the card works fine .. so the card is not destroyed is like .. the rock 64, once it boots up with the microsd card .. it sets some kind of .. bit or something, stopping it from being seen, in a usb reader/writer.

I have tried it with 2 MicroSD cards now ... I also have tried plugging the usb stick into the Rock 64, with a MicroSD card, that was used previously in a rock64, same result.

I have no idea why this is happening. I have re-written microsd cards many times, for the pi 3, never a problem.

I have not expanded the microsd card, to use all the space on it yet .. but can't see why that would make a diffrence.

I am a relative newbie,when it comes to Linux, so maybe this is just something I don't know {although, as I mentioned, never had this problem, with my Pi's.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Jake
