flash card / memory card readers and linux?


I have a sony vaio pcg-frv27 lap top with a built in memory card reader. Also for my desktop I have a scandisk 8-in-1 memory card reader. When I google I'm not coming up with many results for linux drivers for these.

Does anyone know of a resource or guide to getting the flash/memory card readers (digital camera card readers) to recognize in linux? If I can get this done my family will be willing to switch 100% to linux (after I get the wpa-psk figured out for the wireless broadband .

If anyone has any experience with this please let me know.

I'm using Fedora Core 4 as set up and updated according to http://www.stanton-finley.net guide for FC4. I update using the yum repositories and configuration on the stanton-finley website.

I'm also not a commandline guru either and I've been spoiled by plug and play in windoze. I'm learning but it's slow. I learn by experience. It's hard to sift through pages of documents written for technical experts and try to weed out the information I need while researching what this means or what that is. So I do apologize for not being at the level of experience of most others.

Thanks for any help you can provide

With an up-to-date kernel these things shouldn't need a separate driver. Their all covered under usb mass storage drivers (built into the kernel) and mount as scsi devices.

What kind of messages do you get from 'dmesg' (type dmesg at a command prompt) when you insert any type of media into the slots?

I have been using a SanDisk card reader for years with no problem. In my current Ubuntu,it pops up on the desktop as soon as you insert the card.

sorry for taking so long here. I've been wrestling with getting wpa to work on my wireless (unsuccessfully)

When I type dmesg I get a HUGE output. I've tried to weed through it to see if I can recognize the card reader but nothing.

When I insert the memory stick into the reader the light doesn't even come on (in the stick) like it does for windoze. below is the very lengthy output from dmesg

# dmesg

Hello Im having the same problem, I bought a lenovo laptop and it came with a SD, MMC, MS, MSpro internal card reader and an internal webcam but i really have no idea of how to get them to work.

Im running Fedora Core 4 on the 2.6.14 kernel(currently updating to 2.6.15)

This is the output of the /sbin/lspci command:

00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/PM/GMS/910GML Express Processor to DRAM Controller (rev 03)

02:04.4 FLASH memory: ENE Technology Inc: Unknown device 0551 (rev 01)


I suppose the last four are the card reader.

dmesg gives me an error that repeats itself and some other stuff but couldnt find anything that had to do with the card reader, the error is the following:


ACPI-0412: *** Error: Handler for [EmbeddedControl] returned AE_TIME
ACPI-0508: *** Error: Method execution failed [\_SB_.PCI0.LPCB.BAT1._BST] (Node c14dc3a0), AE_TIME


Also i have an integrated webcam but have no idea of where to look for that one to get it to work? any suggestions for anything would be really gratefull.

I have an external generic card reader i can connect through usb and that works perfectly, didnt even needed to install anything but the internal one doesnt work at all, so Im supposing I need some drivers for it dont I?

I am not much more than a newbie myself but I would do some low level trouble shooting. Try to plug in a usb card reader into a slot and see if it will read from that. If the same you might insert a card, go to your partition manager and see if it is recognized. I have a serial hard disk that shows up as sda. My multiport card reader plugs into a usb port on the mthbrd. When I insert a card it shows up on my partition manager as sdc and is automatically mounted to /mnt/kodac. If it shows up as an unmounted drive then mount it.

Thats as deep as I can go; already over my head.

Card Reader

Any advice on how to list the device I have plugged in I know you can use lsscsi for seeing if external HD is plugged in.

To find out if your linux is recognizing anything such as a USB device or one of these cards, you can use the following command:
tail -s 3 -f /var/log/messages
You may need to be root but once something is plugged in and recognized, you will see a new entry pop up and tell you which /dev it is, such as /dev/sda1. To exit this command use Ctrl-C.
I don't know about getting these cards recognized. I just compiled a new kernel on my VAIO laptop and right now I cannot read from mine either. When I figure it out I'll post back.

If it is a multicard reader for a RH9 or 2.4 distro try adding to /etc/modules.conf the line

options scsi_mod max_scsi_luns=8

For CentOS4.3 or 2.6 distro try adding to /etc/modprobe.conf

options scsi_mod max_luns=8

Not sure about why single card readers would not work though.
