USB Sandisk card reader
 
Hello All Newbies,

I just bought a Sandisk Imagemate Smartmedia card reader
(Reference number is SDDR-55-02) which is connected
on USB.
It's claimed "Linux compatible" by the retailer.
Apparently Mandrake 8.1 doesn't know it.
Does anybody know this device and how to make it work
under Linux ?

Many thanks in advance !:cool:

sandisk sddr55 in mandrake 8.2
 
Hi,

I also have a sandisk sddr55 and use Mandrake 8.2. That recognizes the unit under the USB-unit tag in the Mandrake Control Centre - does not work properly in Mandrake 8.1 -, see information below (Sorry, default system language is swedish!):

ImageMate USB SmartMedia

However, it don't know how to get it working! According to the sandisk homepage, this card reader does not work with Linux. I did notice earlier that the usb support in Mandrake 8.2 is significantly improved compared with 8.1, but apparently, there is a lack of specific drivers.

I made a search on the web and found some interesting links:
http://www.geocrawler.com/mail/msg.p...1987&list=2571
which in turn refers to:
http://www.munton.demon.co.uk/sddr55/sddr55.diff

Now this is where my problem starts: How do I use this diff file in order to adapt my usb-storage driver in Mandrake 8.2 (2.4.18 kernel)??

As you see I am a newbie, ...
:(

Any help is appreciated!

Ralf
