I’m getting an error lately when running OSMC Kodi on my Raspberry Pi 3. When I install and read all my movies into the database everything looks fine. However the next day when I startup my Raspberry Pi again all the movies are gone. And even worse I can NOT read them into the library again.
I have to start a new image all over again.
This happend a few times and is really starting to bug me.
Is there a sollution to this bug? BTW I think it has to do with the power save option but I am not sure.
It is with the latest image of 2019-08-08
It seems like your SD card may be problematic.
Some SD cards are not genuine or have a lower capacity than advertised. Some simply fail over time.
Symptoms of SD cards not working correctly are:
- Read-only behaviour, or changes made not persisting
- A filesystem corruption error
Symptoms of counterfeit SD cards are:
- Writing works until a certain filesystem size is reached, thereafter, writes seem to cause issues where existing data is lost or newly written data is not preserved.
- SD card fails after a short amount of time.
Counterfeit cards are usually found on Amazon and eBay.
SD cards have a limited lifespan. I recommend you change SD card and suspect that issues will no longer persist with a good card. If you would like to be a good quality SD card purpose manufactured for OSMC, then you can find one in the Store.
How are you shutting down your Pi and what “power save option” are you referring to?
Ok, the error seems to be"fixed" with a new sd. The old sd was 5-10 years old so I guess it was at the end of it’s lifespan.
That’s a long time when running an operating system off a card
