In further testing, it looks like I've just been unlucky (or, possibly, some SD cards' translation/wear leveling is very bad for ext2/ext3/ext4, as AngelaS's answer suggests - I'd love to have a way to better test this). A Wintec FileMate SD card worked perfectly, with partimage and ext3.
I am not familiar with Partimage, so I cannot help on that. However: both dd and gparted work perfectly well with microSD cards, so you should have no problem first dd'ing your image to the card, second enlarging the partition to the card capacity with gparted. Also, gparted supports a wider range of filesystem types than partimage. Lastly, are you sure ...
The sd card propperly have a littel switch on the side, try change the state of that switch. This youtube video shows how to do it: LINK
If you only want the card to be unreadable, you can do this by setting the NTFS permissions. But if you are looking for some kind of security, you'll need to activate the sd card by a password on each startup.
Here's an article with working link. And also a summary of how you do this: Start DiskPart by opening Start menu and typing in diskpart in the search. After giving DiskPart permission to start with administrative privileges, you will be in a console window with DISKPART> prompt. Deleting partitions Type LIST DISK to find out what disk you need to ...
The only thing that has ANY meaning is the speed-class or UHS rating of the card. Any other indication/name/label whatever is just marketing blurb and doesn't mean anything. This is the small number with a capital C around it for older cards (speedclass) or the number with a capital U around it for newer cards (UHS). Speedclass goes upto 10 and should be ...
There is no direct relationship between the physical size and performance. The form factor defines the size of the plastic shell. What is inside is based on the same chip manufacturing technology. Technology improvements, in the industry overall or by a specific chip manufacturer, can go into either form factor. Putting a MicroSD card in an SD adapter ...
maybe this will answer your question. It states that there are two reasons, why a full-size SD card might be the better solution: Price and Speed.
SSD's have a limitation on the number of times a memory location can be written to. All SSD's extend their lifetime by doing memory translation, moving the recorded bits to different locations so that all the locations get used evenly, and not just the first few kilobytes over and over. The algorithms used can vary from one manufacturer to another so to ...
