How to read SD cards in CentOS?


Hi there,

Just want to know on how to read SD cards in my CentOS box?

I have a Dell T7400 that has an SD card reader built in:
http://www.dell.com/us/en/business/d...00&cs=04&s=bsd

I have inserted the Sdcard but seems to not automount or recognize it in the system.

HDmicro SD 16GB.

Did a fdisk -l and df -H but only found my local drives.

Particularly wanted to format the card for this reason.

Please advise.

Thanks.
DB

There are SD cards and SDHC cards(not exactly positive on the name). All the cards above a certain size (2GB?) are of the SDHC variety. A SDHC reader will read both SD and SDHC cards but a SD card reader cannot read SDHC cards. I suspect that you have the older hardware.

Thanks for the response.

According to Dell, this is an Internal USB Media Card Reader 19:1 that Wave systems manufactured.

Probably the easiest way to check is to find a small (64-512MB) card and try it. If it works, then you know. If it does not it is a hardware support issue.
