Acer Aspire 5920G + fedora 10 : Memory Stick Pro Duo not detected


Hi there !

I have an Acer 5920 and Fedora 10 installed on it. Everything works well and out of the box.
However, today I encounter a problem :
my 5-in-1 card reader cannot read a Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo in a Memory Stick Duo Adapter.
Other cards (like SD) are immediately detected.

Is this a problem of the linux kernel or a problem of Fedora 10 ?

Can someone tell me how to overcome this problem ?

Thanks.

Unplug the reader with the card in it and reinsert the adapter, open up a terminal and type dmesg, paste the bottom lines which should be about the adapter being connected and post it here.

I cannot unplug the reader. I'm not going to disamble my portable...

But I can search through dmesg and search for something that relates to this card reader.

I'm not going to go and search for your laptops specs, so i assumed you were talking about a usb card reader, anyway, take the card out and put it back in, do dmesg.

I have the same exact setup

The hardware
Code:
[root@saturn ~]# lspci | grep -i ricoh

0a:09.3 System peripheral: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C592 Memory Stick Bus Host Adapter (rev 12)
0a:09.4 System peripheral: Ricoh Co Ltd xD-Picture Card Controller (rev ff)
The Issue
Code:
[root@saturn ~]# dmesg | grep ricoh
ricoh-mmc: Ricoh MMC Controller disabling driver
ricoh-mmc: Copyright(c) Philip Langdale
ricoh-mmc: Ricoh MMC controller found at 0000:0a:09.2 [1180:0843] (rev 12)
ricoh-mmc: Controller is now disabled.
Modules
Code:
[root@saturn ~]# lsmod | egrep 'mmc|ricoh|sdhci'
