That's a good point to start looking. I poked around and by setting
host->ios.clock to 10000000 instead of 25000000, read from a 16GB card
is no longer giving any error.
I still don't dare to do any write. Already burn one 16GB SD and not
ready to trash another. I asked earlier but haven't got any reply as
to how to recover an SD that says "No medium found". Any chance of
recovering it?

Here's what I did. If set too low (1000000) or too high (25000000),
random errors appeared.
