I purchased Patriots also from amazon got the 5 pack of them.

Yes they are very reasonably priced, but ANYTHING COULD have happened to those cards, even after arriving in my possession, and face it, I have a LOT of MAG mount antenna laying around here, so I simply am going to suggest this, and I will defer to GEMiller for a "correct" or MORE-correct than simply scribbling zeros or random data across the card prior to any use or re-use, I personally could care less about "burning" a write session on the card........face it at some point THEY ALL WILL FAIL.  So weather it fails today, or tonight because I "burned" one Read/Write session on it, I could care less, this is why I carry backups......(enough about best practices)......

There is nothing whatsoever wrong with the "clockmaker" script / build recipe.......As gemiller said to me in an email it's very probable that I got a batch of "bad" micro SD cards because the exact same recipe failed after attempting on 4 separate but "brand new" micro SD cards, same brand, same source, same shipping method all together in the same package and even stored by myself in the same container / what ever may have effected one of them p

Hi Alan,

Would you be willing to share the brand/source/specifics of the cards that were bad? Never hurts to be able to scratch something off the list of potential purchases if they have a high failure rate.

Myself, I have both "Patriot" brand and "Silicon Power" brand in use on my Raspi's, with no confirmed failures (the "Patriot" ones in service for over a year, the Silicon Power ones in use only a few weeks, but no issues thus far). Got both brands on Amazon, 16gb sized (only because 16gb seems to be the sweet spot for having current/good specs and great prices - often less expensive than the 8gb's.)
