Question Filesystem for SD card


I got a card reader, it is /dev/sdc,
when I type
mount /dev/sdc /media/sd (in linux suse),
it prompts me to enter filesystem,

You will want to read through the "man mount" and "man fstab" man pages. If "/dev/sdc" and "/media/sd" don't exist in /etc/fstab, then you need to give what filesystem the sd card uses after the "-t" options. Try "-t vfat".

As a side note, all the filesystems type that your kernel can do are listed in /proc/filesystems (good luck to find this in windows).
If you don't specify a type, linux will try to detect it and "pass the -t" option.

you could also try mounting the first partition on the sd card. you may be getting that error because you are trying to mount the entire device instead of the filesystem on the device.

I mount flash memory devices like this...

mount /dev/sdc1 /media/sd

note the 1 after sdc...

If you wouldn't mind to much, could you use the lspci and lsmod commands to determine which kernel module is used for the SD device. Is it one of those multimedia devices found on many of the newer laptops. Thanks, I'm just curious.
