Is the drive still mounted when you pull the plug?

If one is going to hot-plug like this, instead of an orderly shutdown, does the application running in ram at least unmount the card after loading in preparation for an end-user to just pull the plug later on?

When you use "copy2fs" you can set it up to dismount all disks. I actually removed the SD card.

Ah, I stand corrected.  Since pulling the plug is touted as an advantage on your website, I'd suggest not leaving this up to the user to set up the dismounts and do it by default.  Just good engineering practice.

Nice site btw.  Very modern and clean.  Looking forward to the support forum.

piCorePlayer based on piCore has hundreds, maybe thousands of installations. I prepared a "copy2fs" solution waiting for corruptions of SD cards. It never happened. We might be lucky that our application does little writing to the SD card.

We try not to use this forum for piCorePlayer support as it is frowned upon.  :(
