USB memory card reader


LSUSB gives me this line..

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 05e3:0710 Genesys Logic, Inc. USB 2.0 33-in-1 Card Reader

Is there a way to get this device to work?

running Archlinux 0.8
Kernel 2.6.20-ARCH


Thanks

It would appear the system sees the card reader. Have a look on /dev to see is there is a device for it. On my system, if I plug in my card reader without a card inserted, the system creates a /dev/sda and lsusb shows my card reader. If I add a memory card the system creates two dev entries, sda and sda1. I treat sda1 as a disk drive. If the memory card is formatted, you should be able to mount it. Simple as that.

Have you got a card inserted? If not, plug one in.

I don't know much about Archlinux. Does the device get created for the memory card? Do you have to make the dev's yourself?

Once I plug in the card reader with a memcard, I see /dev/sda and /dev/sda1. At this point I opened a root konsole, added a dir to mount the card to. Then I did a 'mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/mountdir and the card mounted.

At this point I can read files on the card. only funny thing is, until I had files on the card, I could not see it. So I took my card, put it in my camera, shot some pics, stuck it back in the card reader, remounted the card, and voila files, pictures in .jpg format in my case.

I also have a mp3 player that I mount the same way. I can then drag and drop my mp3 files to the player.
