Sorry about that...

I've stared at the code, but didn't find why that worked at all.
If the drive is "offline" (which basically means sd_get_parms()
did fail), I'd pretty much expect everything else to fail.
So the question is why sd_get_parms() fails... If I didn't miss
something important the error must originate in sd_get_capacity().
Could you instrument that code a bit -- there is some debug code
within "#if 0" which might just do it.

best regards
