    ISSUE E:/mount /dev/block/mmblk0pl on /sdcard failed ( No such file or directory), now try read-only to
    mount again...
    E:read-only mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 on /sdcard failed (No such file or directory) !!!
    E:failed to mount /sdcard (No such file or directory)
    and it repeats about 4 more times

    The usb is formatted as per BurnCardMakerV2.0.2 and all options ticked and I've tried it also without the "To Partition
    and Format" ticked and the same result.

    The USB is 3.72 GB and BurnCardMaker completes the burning fine.

    Can anyone help?

    It seems like someone is just doing the firmware in their spare time as a hobby.
    Surely the final version of the firmware is ready by now ?
    I have two Minix boxes & am thinking of getting a new box for the main lounge before Christmas.
    I'm sure I'm not the only one in this position so come on Minix show a bit of loyalty to your customers & get a move on :(

    Okay, I am done with Minix, not even taking the decency to provide customers with some information on this. I switch to Raspberry Pi, maybe less powerful hardware specs, but at least the hardware can still be utilized to the maximum.

    Where do you read something about throwing in in the bin? I will sell it, just like I did with my X7 mini and X8-H.

    Seriously though, you can understand the frustrations of many minix customers as official support has completely gone AWOL for quite some time now......

    Hi All. Have encountered some unexpected behaviour with the firmware (from my perspective) and wondered if anyone could shed any light - might just be me! The system has begun to cache app data to the root of my SD card, something it has never done before. Seems to be caching in both SD card and on board memory from what I can tell. Anyone have an explanation as to why? Still plenty of on board memory left so just a bit confused
