SD card transfer rate slow in SUSE 10.0 RC1


in windows, it is MB/s,
but in linux, only 40kb/s,
why?
SUSE autodetect my SD card and mount it in /media
what can i do to increase its rate?

in both situation, it is mounted to the same USB2.0 of motherboard

Did SuSE pick the right driver for your USB controller?
Check
lsmod
output.

Is the device plugged into the same port in both OSes?



Cheers,
Tink

Post the output of the command /sbin/lsmod

I don't mount sd cards that way. When the card reader is plugged in and an sd card in it, if you type the command as root ' /sbin/fdisk -l ', do you have one called /dev/sd**. If so add the line matching the drive ID and partition to your /etc/fstab and then use the command ' mount /dev/sda1 ' if it is ' sda1 '. Note you need to create a directory in your /mnt directory. Reason I asked I just wanted to make sure you did not have the ' sync ' option for your mounting info line in /etc/fstab. That really slows things down.
Code:
/dev/sda1               /mnt/sda1               auto    umask=000,users,noauto,owner,rw,dirsync   0 0
Hope this helps.

so, what i need to do is:
fdisk -l (to see where is my sd card)
create a folder in /mnt, let's name it sd1
then
mount /dev/sd*** /mnt/sd1

correct?

Anyway, suse autodetect SD card and automount it, but why is it slow?

Code:
/dev/sdd1               /mnt/sd1               auto    umask=000,users,noauto,owner,rw,dirsync   0 0
Mount command ' mount /dev/sdd1 /mnt/sd1 ', but since it is mapped in /etc/fstab then even ' mount /dev/sdd1 ' will work. It will mount to directory /mnt/sd1.

Hope this helps.

Read the man pages for fstab ' man fstab '. They provide lots of info.
Well umask is used to set the owership of the mount point. Making it 000 allows anyone to right to it.
noauto means it does not automount at boot.

Before mounting, i must umount it first, which is automounted by suse during bootup.
Then mount manually.

Suse 10.0 - Reading/Writing SD cards.

I recently purchased a Cisnet-80 laptop. The processor is the AMD Turion 64. There is an internal SD card drive on the side of the laptop.

The laptop is sold with Win-XP Home Edition. I loaded up my Suse 10.0 DVD and it loaded with only one hitch (the video driver for the ATI). Research on the Web revealed an easy fix for this (if interested, let me know and I'll point ya to it).

The SD card driver is the brick wall I hit. Reading the posts here sounds like you folks got it licked. However, the conversation seems way past "just getting it to work."

Can you folks back up a bit and review the steps on getting it to work?

Thanks!
