sudo: rescan-scsi-bus-l: command not found
kenny@kenny-laptop:~$ sudo rescan-scsi-bus -l
sudo: rescan-scsi-bus: command not found
kenny@kenny-laptop:~$

And to make sure we are on the same page. this reader is built in to the computer. I take out my card from camera, put in slot. nothing. Thank you for your help!!! I really want to get this thing going. It did recognize my mp3 player, but thats all so far.

This last letter in the command, is it l (lower case L) or the number (1)?

It's an L, but it's strange that it doesn't find the command. Try running:

Code:
whereis rescan-scsi-bus
That should tell you if the command exists, you may need to use the full path.

Ok, this is what I got:

kenny@kenny-laptop:~$ whereis rescan-scsi-bus
rescan-scsi-bus:
kenny@kenny-laptop:~$ rescan-scsi-bus-l
rescan-scsi-bus-l: command not found
kenny@kenny-laptop:~$ whereis rescan-scsi-bus
rescan-scsi-bus:
kenny@kenny-laptop:~$

The "-l" is an option, not part of the command's name. It has a space before it, too.

How about:

Code:
su
Password: enter root password
rescan-scsi-bus -l
exit

well, the only way i can get it to accept the password (i guess its accepting it, it does not say authentication fail, is to type it this way:
kenny@kenny-laptop:~$ su kenny
Password:
kenny@kenny-laptop:~$ rescan-scsi-bus -l
rescan-scsi-bus: command not found
kenny@kenny-laptop:~$

what you need to type is
Code:
sudo rescan-scsi-bus -l
And input your password when it asks.

So you apparently don't have that command.

It's just that some commands are only accessible as root, so we asked you to try that.
