Problem with CF-card reader


Once upon I time my card reader worked just fine. I would stick in my CF-card (Compact Flash) and mount it from /dev/sda1. For some odd reason, this has stopped working.

Now, the following is the output from dmesg when I stick in the card:

Code:
pccard: PCMCIA card inserted into slot 1
pcmcia: registering new device pcmcia1.0
Probing IDE interface ide2...
hde: LEXAR ATA FLASH, CFA DISK drive
ide2 at 0x4100-0x4107,0x410e on irq 3
hde: max request size: 128KiB
hde: 31808 sectors (16 MB) w/1KiB Cache, CHS=497/2/32
hde: cache flushes not supported
 hde:
Same thing happens with a Transcend-card. I'll try booting with an ubuntu live-cd later on.

Any other ideas?

According to this howto, the cache flushes not supported message is normal:

Your message says that hde is detected so you probably need to mount hde1.

That doesn't work either:
Code:
mount: special device /dev/hde1 does not exist
I booted with an ubuntu live-cd yesterday, and it worked just fine there. I can't understand why something that did work in Debian has now stopped working :o
