Unhappy flash card reader works on ubuntu but not fedora


So i just recently switched to fedora from ubuntu and my cell phone (which acts like a microsd card reader) doesn't work any more. when i plug it into the usb port i get an error message: "Cannot mount volume" and under details: "mount: no medium found".

dmesg returns:

Welcome to LQ, but people here will need some more information.

You switched from fedora (which version?) to ubuntu (which version? Please don't just say "the latest" - think about what that does not mean) and what exactly is "your cell phone"?

Otherwise my advice would be to stick with the distro that works for you. If you'd like to try another distro, but then find some things no longer work - Eg your cell phone, then there's some research you'll have to do to to find out exactly what is different between your distros. Such is linux: Improving all the time, but sometimes annoying. But it is "interesting", to some of us, to help make it all work neatly.

Sorry, i'm somewhat new to Linux. Been using it for fifteen days.

Ok, i switched to Fedora Core 9. I'm running the 2.6.25.9 kernel. I switched from Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Desktop Edition. My phone is a roker v6m made by Motorola. I really don't see it needing some type of special driver because its just a micro sd card reader.


i did manage to mount it using mount -t vfat /dev/sdc1 /media/flash but it shows up as 0 bytes used 0 bytes free with nothing on the card.
