Thanks, I think that has worked before, but this time it appears to have 
actually died. I have now twice tried the above command for the whole device 
and each partition separately, followed by fdisk, then mkfs for a single 
partition, then an attempt to dd fresh data to the device, and it still shows 
the original two partitions and the original data. None of the above showed 
any error message, all appeared normal. I will try again later using a laptop 
which has a known working internal SD card reader rather than a USB plug-in.
