Images partitioned right?

I'm very heavily dependent on SD cards. In 2008 it was my
experience that using a particular hub/adapter to initialize SD
cards, I was often seeing partition table corruption. What I ended
up doing was to *only* use the XO-1 itself (built-in SD slot) for
partitioning and for filesystem creates on an SD card.
In 2009 I got an external adapter that is built like a tank (but
only does SD cards). I have had zero problems using it to
initialize SD card filesystems.
p.s. I have been cautioned to avoid guessing when I do not *know*.
But from using a large number of external USB devices with XO-1s,
my guess is that the XO system is sensitive to the 'timings'
presented by those USB devices - so that's something to watch out
for with USB->SD adapters. Maybe the more recent XO software has
gotten to be more tolerant than the earlier software was.
