Read a Sony Memory Stick?
 
How do you read/write to one of these cards??

I have this but it doesn't seem to be working:
sweex 9in1 usb2 with duo reader

It's seen in /proc/bus/usb/devices but can't mess with /dev/sd*

what does dmesg show?

does it make mention to it when you plug it in??

Does a /dev/sda or something like that pop up?

If so, you should be able to mount it.

Cheers,

It should say something like the above

I have a Sony Vaio notebook and the reader is incorporated and I use it
like an usb device by mounting the memory stick as follows:

mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/mmstick/

Try it
