Multi-Card Reader


Hi guys!

I have an Acer Aspire One AOD257 netbook with a built-in multi-card reader.
The problem is it doesn't detect the SD card I have.
I installed the driver for it (Realtek RTS5116) but without change.
I use Meego 1.2 - kernel 2.6.37.6-11.1.
Do you think you can help me?
Thanks in advance!

Andreea.

multi card reader

Have you tried to mount it manually?
You need to be 'root' in a terminal, and then type something like:-
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt ; then press return.
Do df -h in the terminal, if succesful you will see the disk on /mnt.

Hope this helps.

I didn't do it your way but it's working. I don't know what I did.
Thanks anyway! Have a nice day!

When you eject your SD card, do NOT select "Safely Remove Drive" when you want to take out the SD card. Select "Eject". I found out the hard way that selecting "Safely Remove Drive" actually disconnects the card reader itself from your system, and not just the SD card, and requires you to reboot the system to get it back.
