      G'Day,

      I chucked a SD memory card in the garbage after it continued to error out when I attempted to image it using Etcher 1.5.19 with a 2019-04-08-raspbian-stretch-full.img image file. Later I retrieved the SD card from the can after discovering if I switch img file and then try again with the original it worked. I have duplicated the issue on three different manufactures SD cards. I am using 32G memory cards. Maybe that is the issue......

      I recently upgraded etcher. I didn't experience this problem in the past. Curious has anyone else repeated this incident?
