Sony Memory Stick PC-Card Reader


I have a Sony CyberShot camera that uses Memory Sticks. I also have a Sony Memory Stick reader that inserts into a PC card slot (MSAC-PC2 I think). It appears in the hardware browser as /dev/hde and it says that it's a FAT filesystem. I tried to mount it from the shell (mount -t fat /dev/hde /memorystick). The shell then says it doesn't support FAT. The Disk Management app was able to mount a USB Zip disk, and if my memory serves me correctly it was a FAT filesystem. Any ideas/suggestions? If I loaded Wine onto my computer, could I access the stick the way I could in Windows ( E: ) ?

Thanks
Jake

If it appears under a browser then RedHat probably automounted it... also, the argument to mount is usually vfat or msdos.

Cheers,

I tried vfat and msdos but those didn't work... it said each was the wrong file type. I was reading other pages on the Net and some said that you have to load the FAT module before you can mount the FAT system. That module, and VFAT too, are already loaded but I still get the message that the fs is not supported by the kernel.

Do I have to recompile the kernel to get this functionality?

Here is the fstab entry for my Sony card reader: MSAC-US1, that's the USB version:

/dev/sda1 /mnt/memory_card auto user,iocharset=iso8859-1,kudzu,codepage=850,noauto,umask=0,exec 0 0
