input/output errors

All of a sudden I'm getting tons of input/output errors when trying to
boot the Beaglebone on my 32GB SD card:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0084DWCTW

Could this card have some sort of incompatibility with the Beaglebone
even though it worked perfectly for 1-2 weeks?

I did 'fsck.vfat /dev/sdb1' and 'fsck.ext3 /dev/sdb2' but neither
found any errors. The 4GB card that came with the Beaglebone still
works fine. Is the 32GB card a lost cause or is there something I
should try?

Essentially your email is missing a snapshot of the "tons of
input/output errors", & the kernel version running on your bone..
Without which, anyone trying to respond will just be guessing at the
problem..

OK, I'm on kernel 3.1. I've been trying to migrate to 3.6 but I'm
having various difficulties. Here are my errors on 3.1:

I tried to tar up the contents of the card in an SD card reader on my
laptop and it seemed successful but I get:

# umount /mnt/p2
umount: /mnt/p2: device is busy.
(In some cases useful info about processes that use
the device is found by lsof(8) or fuser(1))
