I saw something a few moments ago and thought I'd post it should anyone experience a similar thing.

While attempting to write "stuff" to an SD card, using a card reader, I got a message saying the database was corrupt.

I apparently accidentally slid the lock switch on the card adapter to the locked position. A pop-up window appeared on my second monitor saying the card was locked, but Sentinel also said the database was corrupt.

(Unlocked the switch and all is well).

I wonder if Sentinel ought to be changed so that in this condition, a different error message can be displayed? As it now is, it could be a little mis-leading.

I'm not sure the memory hardware has the ability to let other hardware know its locked. Since it couldn't work properly, since it was locked, it reports the same condition. If the hardware is locked or the DB is corrupted - the result is the same - its not useable.
