    Hi vpeter and Klojum thanks for such quick replies. I'm fairly new to linux so please bear that in mind if I say something odd.

    This is an HP laptop, model 15-1215dx (if I can read the label correctly. It's rather worn)

    Not sure if it makes a diff but I'm using a Micro SD card and it is identified in my system as /dev/mmcblk0

    sudo fdisk -l /dev/mmcblk0

    sudo ./LibreELEC.USB-SD.Creator.Linux-64bit.bin --debug


    And can you try using this sd card with USB reader to see who is doing this problems (sd crd or reader).

    Hi vpeter, regarding your suggestion to "try using with USB reader", I am currently putting the micro SD card into an adapter and inserting this into a slot on the laptop that reads SD cards. Here is the exact equipment I am using and it plugs directly into the laptop:

    I'm running Ubuntu 16.04

    I downloaded LibreELEC.USB-SD.Creator.Linux-64bit.bin
    Then changed it to executable and ran it as root with sudo.

    Immediately get the error: "Segmentation fault (core dumped)"

    But this ONLY happens when my SD card is inserted into the laptop.

    If I eject the SD then the SD Creator launches with no problem, but then soon as I insert the SD card the program crashes: it just exits.

    I have been using the SD with no issues. It's a Toshiba 16GB. And I just tried partitioning and formatting it to see if that would help, but no luck.
