You have several problems:

1] You have hi-jacked this thread.
2] You are talking to yourself (see [1], and previous posts, by yourself)
3] You are running an "old" kernel, which very few people have any interest in: things move on, and improve, and generally "get better" with newer kernels, Eg kernel 2.6.xx
I having kernel version 2.4.xx with NO usb_storage, scsi_mod, sd_mod etc
I'd like to keep the older version I having.
Ok, keep it, if that is what you want, but things are changing fast with linux, and improving all the time. I don't have the time, or inclination to back-port all this stuff to a person who is complaining that "it doesn't work on my 2.4.xx kernel".
If you choose to install the latest stable kernel you will find many improvements.

Please try to keep up to date: You are the equivalent of someone saying "I am running MS-DOS 3.0 and I cannot use the internet. I want to keep MS-DOS 3.0, but still want firefox."

Please wake up!

Who able to use Sony MS, XD or compact flash media in Linux
Many sony media devices are intentionally "closed source". Sony will not reveal how these devices are to be accessed. So I don't use them. (I have a sony laptop, and the SD slot will not work with any linux distribution, because the driver / module is owned by, and private to sony, and not usable, open-source, or yet fixable by the linux community.

Please just deal with it, and stop complaining at us for help in solving your problems.

Instead you should direct your complaints directly to sony.
It is their fault that this doesn't work with linux.


chroot, debian, flash, lilo, media, sfdisk, usb
