Hi all,
I was affected by the SD card failure announced on Ettus site (got some
devices not working).

I have a questions, my local store doesn't have SD cards, but only
SDHC cards (4GB), will those work as well ?

SDHC cards will not work.  Only SD.

I have some remarks to do as well, I hope Ettus will take those in consideration
to improve their procedures.

An email to all people that bought the usrp2 lately would have been better than
only a "news" on Ettus home page.

I sent an email to this mailing list. I considered an email to all recent customers of the USRP2, but decided against it because most of the email addresses we have are for purchasing departments, not end users, but perhaps should have sent one. Also, since good and bad cards were mixed in the same batch, we don't know who has the bad ones.

isn't written where to find it, I found it with a bit of luck at:
also there is no mention on how to install it. Anyway after having
installed it, and
successfully compiled the firmware, I found that at the link:


is already compiled and ready to be installed :(

The wiki documentation is a little thin, I agree. I have applied some of your suggestions to that page.

Thank you for your feedback and suggestions.
