Hardware :: Card Reader/writer That Will Support Most Current Card Types?
Jan 20, 2010
Looking for a card reader/writer that will support most current card types. I am running Fedora 12 x86_64 on a home-grown desktop. Are there any gotchas, that I need to watch for?Also, Internal vs. external, any benefits of one over the other, or is it just personal preference?

very much like everybody i am also waiting for centos 5.3, because 5.2 could not sit on my notebook due to obvious driver issues. would anybody tell if centos 5.3 support my x3100 graphics card and bcm 4311 wlan card?
I'm trying to find out when QME2572 (Qlogic) card became support by the kernel. We have a RHEL 5.1 system that is moving to new hardware, however the kernel at this release doesn't support the new hardware, due to the Qlogic card change. I tired the Redhat KB and Bugzilla. Is there a Kernel change list etc I can search. Never really played around with the kernel too much so I'm just after some pointers for looking up this information. Offically its not supported until Redhat 5.3, I'm trying trying to research kernel info so I can tell the customer they have to upgrade.
I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 in my system. I have plug in th USB card reader but it is not detected. Eventhough the same card is detected when I'd pluged in at last night and I have just browse the folders in the memory card.Then I just right click on the icon in media folder and click eject the texts in file /var/ log/messages for above operation.
I am very new to Linux. I installed ubuntu 9.10 on my Acer 3050 aspire. It works very well except for a few issues. I can not use my 5 in 1 card reader, nothing shows up in "computer" except "cd/dvd" and "file system". My lg phone does not show up when using my data cable as mass storage, and the touch pad is too sensitive, (i have adjusted the settings listed under mouse/touchpad but to no avail. The biggest problems is the card reader and phone. Can this be fixed?
I've recently purchased a Lenovo Ideapad z470, and installed Debian Wheezy amd64 on it first thing. I was pleased to find that almost everything worked "out of the box." The only problems were the hotkeys and the card reader. I don't care if the hotkeys ever work, but the non-working card reader is more aggravating than I anticipated. I would be most obliged if anyone could lend a hand.So, first things first, here's the output of uname -a:Linux cerulean 2.6.39-2-amd64 #1 SMP Tue Jul 5 02:51:22 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/LinuxHere's the syslog output upon inserting an sd card into reader:

I could use some instructions on how to get firefox to read and use my cac card. Under Yast the card reader shows up in hardware. I have install pcsc ccid and coolkey through Yast but not sure if I need to do anything else. I have followed instructions for loading the device in firefox but it does not load my certs off of the card.
My PC is an Intel Core-i7-950 with 8GB RAM. The motherboard is an Intel Extreme, DX580G. Ubuntu (64) 10.10 is the only OS run on this system, and uses the entire hard-disk.
Today, I purchased an internal USB card reader that connects to the USB socket on the motherboard. Once I connected it, the PC started hanging on boot. When it hangs, there is nothing but a non-blinking, still cursor on the top left corner of the screen.
Earlier I had set the Grub2 boot delay to '0', and therefore I guess I do not get to see any messages or the Grub2 menu.
The story is the same with an external USB card-reader. If I connect the external card-reader and try to boot, the PC hangs in the manner described above.
If I disconnect the internal / external USB card-reader, everything is normal.
The following web-page describes the problem in the manner I can understand. But it does not provide a permanent solution.

I can't seem to get my card reader to work. The USB port on the reader works and sometimes I can read my SD card. Usually, nothing shows up in the media/ folder. I looked at this write-up [URL]... but I'm not sure if this is what I should do. Here are some info I was able to pull up:
I just did a fresh install of OpenSuSE 11.2 for my fiancee on her new HP Mini 110-1030NR, and everything works great, except for the 5 in 1 card reader. Here is the information I believe you may find relevant:

I'm using USB 3G modem and it has SD card reader embedded. I am also using USB hard drive as boot device. It is a Netgear WNDR 3700 router. I am posting it in here because it is a general question, not really associated with embedded installations. When loading the system from power up my HDD get's /dev/sda assigned and my modem SD card reader: /dev/sdb [although there's no SD card inserted]. But when booting after restart hard drive is sdb and modem is sda. Thanks to that I get kernel panic and all is over. I have to manually reboot. I cannot use initrdfs so I can't use UUID/LABEL to identify the device. Is there any way I could stop this SD card reader from loading? I believe it uses usb mass storage driver, just as my hdd.
I have a new computer with with an SSD internal drive, built in SD card reader, and USB expansion ports.If I populate media in all slots and type "fdisk -l" I get a listing of the partitions for the external USB ports but fdisk doesn't report anything for the internal media. If I unplug the USB drives and type fdisk it just goes to the command line. If I type "df" it locates the partitions for the internal SSD drive but doesn't report anything for the media in the built in reader. If I type "mount" the same thing.
I've looked in /dev/ but I can't find anything that looks like something I can mount. I'd expect something like sda1 or something similar but it's not there. The contents of /media/ do report something called "card" but going there and typing "ls" doesn't get me any result. There is also an entry for "mmc1" but it too doesn't report anything.
I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 32 bits version on a desktop PC. Every thing works OK, exept for a USB hub and card-reader combination from IN-WIN Inc. I could not find a clue on the Internet. The manufacturer and apparatus code is: ID 10df:0500 (as from "lsusb").
Below I have listed all the hardwire of the PC, as obtained from "lshw". The italic part at the bottom deals with the IN-WIN module. I suspect that it may have to do something with the "emulated scsi-host" thing, of which I just know nothing about.
I found a solution to my card reader problem in a another fedora post but when I type the code in terminal I get: all config files need.conf /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist How to write this code so I wont get this error and I can load these modules and also how to edit the modprobe.conf.
The code is below, using fedora 13. You must load these two modules to work with card reader. First : Remove the card from the Reader! AS superuser type in console : 1. /sbin/modprobe tifm_core <enter> 2. /sbin/modprobe tifm_sd <enter>
If you want to automate these modules loading do the following : edit the /etc/modprobe.conf file add these : alias mmc_core tifm_core alias mmc_card tifm_sd
I just installed opensuse 11.2 on my laptop in a dualboot configuration with windows 7.I prefer using suse, but also recognize, that once in a while, windows is useful.One of the things i like to do in linux is handle my photos with f-spot/gimp, but for some reason my laptops built in card reader is not recognized by the system. If a card is inserted, it doesn't even show up in the partition manager..?I'm not completely new to linux, but i'm not an advanced user either, so i can't figure out what to do here
I am trying to disable the built-in card reader in my MBP (5,3) running Debian testing. I've noticed that powertop lists the card reader as a major contributor of wake up events and would like to disable it as I rarely need to read SD cards.
I just bought a new Nikon S570 digital camera and I was trying to mount the camera via the USB cable in order to get the pictures off of it but either a) I don't know how to mount the camera properly or b) there is some sort of compability or program that I need to install in order to get it to work. According to lsusb it the camera shows up as being connected:
Code: Bus 004 Device 003: ID 05ac:8213 Apple, Inc. Bus 004 Device 002: ID 0a5c:4500 Broadcom Corp.

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub So maybe i just need to know how to mount it so I can access the files?
Also, I tried to plug the SD card into the built in card reader but it never showed up either. Do I need to do anything different to get the SD card to mount too?
This is the issue, and I have had this happen with a few card readers. I have a Alfa Usb Wifi adapter model number AWUS036H using the rtl8187 Chipset. It works fine, unless I plug in my flash card reader directly to the board. If I plug it in to a hub it works fine until I put a card in, I was also having the same issues using a USB Video Capture unit by the name of EASYCAP. This was also happening in XP. Must be some driver conflict of sorts.
I have an Acer Aspire One running Fedora 10.The Aspire One has a built in multi-format memory card reader compatible with SDHC, XD, Memory Stick Pro and MMC cards, however the card reader is only detected during bootup if a card is inserted otherwise the device isn't detected, the relevant drivers aren't loaded and the card reader doesn't work.
In other words if Fedora is booted without a card in the reader and I then want to use the card reader I have to insert a card and reboot in order to use it, after which cards can be inserted & removed and are detected and automounted with no problems.When the card reader is working lsmod shows the following modules are loaded.
If the laptop is booted without a card in the reader none this shows up. I've also tried manually loading the mmc_core, mmc_block, sdhci, memstick & jmb38x_ms modules to see if this kicks the reader into life but it doesn't. Is there a way of forcing the detection of this device during bootup?
I'm running openSUSE 11.4 on an HP 630 laptop with KDE. Everything works fine but cards inserted into the internal SD card reader are not read, and from what I can tell the reader is not recognized at all by openSUSE on my system. The reader does not appear listed in hardware information and is not listed with the command fdisk -l . There appear to be no references at all to the reader. The reader is recognized, however, on a live USB of Linux Mint 11, where the model is listed as "Generic - xD/SD/M.S." (the vendor too), revision 1.00. It is listed as an SCSI Controller scsi5. Typing lsscsi in the termal of openSUSE provides the following:
