Did you try as a user? As root? Any difference?

Open a terminal and run the following, enter the root password if required. You will see some output, but ignore the messages already there.

# su -c 'tail -F /var/log/messages -n 10'

Leave the terminal open and insert your MMC card. Instantly there should be some output. Paste that output here.

Basically if you see some sort of device ID then you can get it to work, if not then there maybe some other limitation.

For example, on my FC5 with an SD card:

Aug 23 19:26:18 charon kernel: SCSI device sdc: 1953792 512-byte hdwr sectors (1000 MB)
Aug 23 19:26:18 charon kernel: sdc: Write Protect is on
Aug 23 19:26:18 charon kernel: sdc: assuming drive cache: write through
Aug 23 19:26:18 charon kernel: SCSI device sdc: 1953792 512-byte hdwr sectors (1000 MB)
Aug 23 19:26:18 charon kernel: sdc: Write Protect is on
Aug 23 19:26:18 charon kernel: sdc: assuming drive cache: write through
Aug 23 19:26:18 charon kernel: sdc: sdc1

The 'sdc1' is the device ID I want.
