Acer Travelmate 4500 card reader (Texas Instruments)


hello,

a few days ago i started using ubuntu linux on my laptop (acer travelmate 4500).
most of the hardware works ok. other things i could fix using the internet. the only thing that keeps bugging me is my cardreader. it's a 3 in 1 card reader built in into my laptop.

here is my lspci output:

0000:02:06.2 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Texas Instruments: Unknown device 8032
0000:02:06.3 Unknown mass storage controller: Texas Instruments: Unknown device 8033
the last device is the card reader (i think)

if i put a memory card in, there happens nothing in "dmesg", or in "fdisk -l".
i tried to mount it, without succes. it looks like drivers are missing.

i searched driverguide.com, but couldn't find anything. i searched this forum, and found a lot of similar problems, but no solutions. so, i would really appreciate it if somebody could give me some advice how to fix this thing.

kind regards,
digits
