I have a SanDisk Compact Flash reader. I have a card with about 40 photos, but it won't read. In my /mnt directory there is a directory for my "Removeable Drive", but it does not recognize the card. I have Mandrake 9.1 and I am running the Enlightenment window manager.

Unplug the reader, then replug it and wait for 10 seconds or so. Then, open an app called KwikDisk - it's located in Start - Configuration - Hardware. Have a look to see if your /mnt/removable is listed as one of the disks available. If it is, right click and choose mount. Then right click again and go for open File Manager. That should sort you out, hopefully.
