Experience with SD card file system corruption, if used in mobile device


if I use the Raspberry in a boombox like device and don’t shut it down before I disconnect the power, will the filesystem get corrupted soon? I think, if there is not much write access to the SD card, it will not be a big problem.

Have anybody tried a use case like this?


You’d likely corrupt the card at some point. But you should be able to setup a read only filesystem, maybe you can find some ideas/help at PiMusicBox on ReadOnly filesystem GStreamer error (v0.5.2)

Thank you very much for the link. I searched the forum carefully for the word “power” to find similar questions without success.
