Digital Camera Card Drive

My tablet PC doesn't have a 3 1/2" floppy drive, instead it has a universal drive for digital camera memory cards, however whenever I insert a memory card it doesn't pick it up or mount it as a storage device. I'm using a Gateway M275. Can anybody tell me how I could go about mounting the drive or where I could find the software to install the drive? I have a USB cable so if the drive doesn't work I can always plug a USB cable into my PC, but the DigiKam program that comes with my distro doesn't have my model of camera listed.(DXG Model 321) Help please.

" fdisk -l " will display all the currently attached drives. Find your device (you will find it quickly with the use of the information above the listings, they tell you drive information, size - being the most important) and mount it with this command

mount /dev/<device_name_from_above_command> /mnt/point/here

unmount it with

umount /dev/<device_name_here>

Good luck!

A working example below:

fdisk -l tells you the device name is /dev/sdb1 and you want to mount the device in your mount directory under the name Digital_Camera

mkdir /mnt/Digital_Camera
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/Digital_Camera

when finished -> umount /dev/sdb1
