Im glad having my new Etherdue. Thank's Guys for your great work!

here is my Problem:

I like to access a 2GB FAT16 SD Card for reading some data from a txt file. Using the SD examples, there is no response. Testing the same sketch with my Etherten and the same Card - everything is fine. Any Suggestions? Is there anything more to know about for example Pin declarations, etc?

Sorry to ask a silly question, but when you push the uSD card into the ED, does the socket show some resistance and then 'lock' the card in?

Yes it does. Same as with Etherten.

Ok then. Next - if not already done so, please try IDE v1.5.6
http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software#toc3

and run the cardinfo example. If that doesn't work please email support@freetronics.com.

OK then, most likely a faulty socket. Please email support@freetronics.com to organise a replacement board.
