Yes, yes, another USB card reader thread.
Couple of queries:
I have actually managed to get my Memory Stick reader to work in FC2 (after much messing about), however, it is only recognized if there is a memory stick actually in the card reader when I plug the card reader into the USB port. If I plug the card reader in without a card, then an entry won't be added to fstab because there's no 'disk' that can be mounted, and if I subsequently insert a card, nothing happens, because (I think) fstab is only updated when the card reader itself is plugged in. Is there any way of either:
i) getting Kudzu to update fstab when a card is inserted into the reader
ii) having the card reader listed as a mountable device regardless of whether or not there is a card in the reader (ie, behave like a cdrom device)
When the device is successfully recognized and an entry is added to fstab, is there any way to have the 'sync' option automatically added to it's line? - so it appears something like:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/memstick auto noauto,owner,kudzu,sync
Obviously I can add this manually, but it is removed whenever kudzu refreshes. The reason I want 'sync' added is that, as it is now, whenever I copy large files to a memory stick, the files appear to copy instantaneously, but without any I/O activity on the device (flashing light), and when I try to unmount the device, I get errors about it being busy. However, if I use the sync option, the files appear to copy normally, and I can then unmount the device.
My apologies if these questions have been asked before, but I have trawled Google and searched the forums, but I couldn't find answers to these specific problems. If more detail is required, just ask; as a relative noob, I'm not entirely sure what/what not to include here.
