Question Can Mount 1 GB SD Card But Not 4 GB SD Card


Hi all,

i am using Fedora 12.

i have a 1 GB SD card and a 4 GB SD card.

Using a USB flash reader, when i plug in the 1 GB SD card, dmesg shows

Code:
usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 11
usb 1-5: New USB device found, idVendor=058f, idProduct=6331
usb 1-5: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3

usb 1-5: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

 sdb: sdb1
sd 12:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through
sd 12:0:0:0: [sdb] Attached SCSI removable disk
The device then shows up in fdisk -l, and i can mount it.

However, when i plug in the 4 GB SD card, dmesg shows:

Code:
usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 13
usb 1-5: New USB device found, idVendor=058f, idProduct=6331

The device does not show up in fdisk -l, and i am unable to mount it.

What could be the issue here? Did i miss out anything?

(i was suspecting that it could be due to the 4 GB size being too large, but that's very unlikely, since i am able to mount a 16 GB micro SD card - through an Android phone though, not the USB reader.)

Any advice anyone?



Thanks in Advance,
Edwin

You might want to try the following:

If this is an SDHC card, there may be an issue with the reader supporting high-capacity (unlike the android phone reader). Try to boot into another OS or a LiveCD, see if it works like that.
If that works, there may be other things you can try under Fedora.

If not, try a different reader.
Also check to see if there is a firmware fix for your reader. I have one here that had this issue, and I had to download a patch for it.
