OpenSUSE Hardware :: Internal SD Card Reader Not Functioning In 11.4 On HP 630 Laptop?
Sep 2, 2011
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:

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 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.
When I insert the xD card into the built-in 5 in 1 card reader of my laptop it doesn't work. An SD card for example does work with this reader, so it is not a "faulty hardware" problem we are talking about right now, and neither is a "HW is not recognized" kind of a problem. My card reader is seen as a
Code:0f:06.2 Mass storage controller: Texas Instruments 5-in-1 Multimedia Card Reader (SD/MMC/MS/MS PRO/xD)in the lspci output.I use debian testing with a 2.6.32-trunk kernel (what is this "trunk" here anyway?)I know this isn't a unique problem and with a cheap external USB powered card reader (I have one) this whole thing can be worked around, but still.
I have successfully installed Ubuntu 9.10 on an HP Pavilion laptop (dv6130US)Although I have not checked everything out, I believe the only hardware issue I have (so far) it getting the media card reader to work.I used the lspci command to determine if the memory card was recognized and got the following response (I've only copied what I believe to be the relative info)05:05.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Ricoh Co Ltd R5C8321394Controller05:05.1 SD Host controller: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C822 SD/SDIO/MMC/MS/MSPro Host Adapter (rev 19)05:05.2 System peripheral: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C843 MMC Host Controller (rev 0a)05:05.3 System peripheral: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C592 Memory Stick Bus Host Adapter (rev 05)05:05.4 System peripheral: Ricoh Co Ltd xD-Picture Card Controller (rev ff)I then created a directory in /dev called mcr sudo mkdir /dev/mcrand created a directory in /media called mcrsudo mkdir /media/mcrI then tried to mount the cardreadersudo mount /dev/mcr /media/mcrbut I got the following errormount: /dev/mcr is not a block device
Based on [URL], I'm having I believe the same issue. FC12 x64, Inserting a XD card shows in messages: Apr 22 11:05:21 localhost kernel: tifm_core: SmartMedia/xD card detected in socket 0:0 However nothing beyond that. (no folder opening, nothing mounted). lspci says:
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.
I recently bought an Acer Extensa 5635Z and things were fine until I lent it to my godson for a weekend and got it back with the internal hard drive not functioning; he said it worked one night, and didn't the next morning; now, it's not recognised and an OS is not found during bootup. Whereas this was bad news for me in one way, on the other hand it was the perfect chance to switch to Ubuntu, something I've been wanting to do for years, and I've been really enjoying most aspects of it after using a live disk to be able to do my work over the last couple of days. Now, instead of buying another new laptop, I would like to use an external hard drive that I've just bought in the place of my broken internal hd, and have Ubuntu on it.I've read tutorials on it and they basically say that all I have to do is:
* Run the live disk - done * Uncheck these options - Mount removable drives when hot-plugged
Is that it? Is there anything else I should do for this particular brand or situation (will the BIOS recognise the hard drive?) or any issues I should know about beforehand? How do I choose the HDD as primary boot? Should I insert the external HD before or after unchecking the options? Should I leave any of the 250 GB to '/dev/sda1'? There being no actual internal hard drive won't provoke trouble with the process?
P.S. My computer is 64-bit capable and I've been using a 64-bit Ubuntu disc. I've had trouble viewing things in this interim period, particularly videos, and incapable of installing codecs. Should I just get a 32-bit Ubuntu disc? Or will the problems be resolved when I have a rewritable disc on which to operate?
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 have an HP Pavilion dv7-1243cl laptop. It has an internal wifi that works ok at home but when I'm traveling I stay at RV Campgrounds the wifi signal gets pretty weak. So I Installed an external antenna.(ALFA model AWUS036H). The signal gets a full 5 bars.
Now the problem. I dual boot OS11.3 and Windows 7 pro. Everything works as expected on MS. When In boot to OS11.3 I can only connect to the internal antenna. (real spotty). If I turn off the internal antenna I can't connect to the external one. Knetwork manager show/detects and shows the strength of both of the signals only when the internal is on. On MS7 I can turn off the internal and it will connect to the external one with no problem. Is there anyway to get OS to allow me to connect to my choice of antenna? I've been into manage connections and selected wlan1 (external). no joy.
I've recently acquired a little 10" netbook (Acer Aspire One D255) and am running Debian squeeze on it. It runs great except for the internal SD card reader, which doesn't do anything. If I have a USB card reader handy then it works fine, but it would be nice to have the internal card reader working if possible.
/var/log/messages says this:usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3 usb 1-5: New USB device found, idVendor=0cf2, idProduct=6250 usb 1-5: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=4 usb 1-5: Product: UB6250 usb 1-5: Manufacturer: ENE FlashBut no device is created and nothing can be mounted.
Doing a little searching reveals many similar complaints from last year, without particularly satisfactory solutions, but I can't find anything more recent. Does anyone know if there's a Debian fix for this yet? By which I mean a simple fix involving adding a module package or maybe upgrading to a wheezy kernel or something like that?
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?
I've got an Addonics AEIDDSAU multi-flash reader/writer that uses the SATA port LINK. I'm running XUbuntu 10.04, 64 bit on an Intel DQ45CB motherboard. The board has 5 internal SATA-300 ports and one external eSATA-300 port. The Addonics reader works fine on the eSATA port, but it doesn't work (properly) on an internal SATA port. By "doesn't work properly" I mean that when connected to the eSATA port, plugging in a memory card causes an immediate detection and the contents of the card pop up in a window (as they should).
When connected to an INTERNAL SATA port, a plugged in card does not show, and using CFDISK to look at the "drive" shows an unformatted 64MiB disk that really doesn't exist. Being an INTERNAL device, the Addonics reader is rather worthless if it doesn't work on an INTERNAL port, and there's no clean way to bring the eSATA port inside the computer. By the way, I'm sure this is NOT a "Linux" problem because the reader behaves the same way in Windows XP.
I just started messing around with openSUSE 11.3 (64-bit version, KDE environment).
My desktop computer has an internal fax/modem card (PCI version, mod. USR5610C). I am very confident that this card works with Linux and U.S. Robotics guarantees that much on their web site.
I connect to the Internet via DSL but I am attempting to set up the internal analog modem card as a back up should the DSL line be temporarily down. I went to YaST -> Modem and I see that my card was detected as "U.S. ROBOTICS 56K FAX INT Modem Not configured". I pressed Edit and the Modem Parameters page says that the device is in "/dev/ttyS4". I am not sure that this is indeed where the modem is located (is there a way to make sure?) but I accepted it and proceeded to entering the name of my Internet service provider, the access phone number, user name, and password. So far, so good -- I think!
Eventually, I come to a window where YaST2 wants to install the following: * jack Jack-Audio Connection Kit v. 1.9.5-2.8 * smpppd SuSE Meta PPP Daemon v. 1.60.46-1.1.1
So far I have not installed them because of the Jack-Audio Connection Kit software. Do I really need to install it in order to get the modem working? The reason I am being careful is that I just spent weeks and weeks in trying to get my audio card (ASUS Xonar DX 7.1, PCI-E) to work with openSUSE and I sure do not want to mess things up and start all over again!
I have openSUSE 11.2, 64 bits. I use Evince from the very beginning. Since a few weeks, when I want to open a .pdf file, Acrobat Reader appears and reads my file. It seems to have become the default reader now. However, I never wanted to change from Evince :this simple program is well enough for me. I tried various ways, but I can't define Evince as my default .pdf reader. How can I make Evince to become my default reader again please ?
I have a problem with the suspend button (fn+f5) on my hp pavilion dv2000 laptop. It is working but only after an intervention. So, every I boot up my system the short-cut/button is not functioning. In order to make it work I have to open the Power Management Preferences and close them. I don't even need to change anything there. Now the button will be working just fine until the next restart. It's pretty annoying to visit the Power Management after each restart, isn't it. Any ideas how could I fix this?
I've got a Toshiba Satellite L25-S199, and it includes an Atheros wireless NIC based on the AR2413 chipset, I believe. Currently I'm running OpenSUSE 11.4 on it, but I've previously had Xubuntu and Ubuntu, and this problem has always existed with WPA2.
Specifically, the LAN is a wireless WPA2 with AES encryption (no TKIP). The computer can connect to the network just fine, but the web is all but unusable; it is very finicky, mostly failing to fetch any pages, but sometimes succeeding (mostly with Google pages, and those from the local network's servers). Perhaps a DNS issue?
This problem doesn't occur with WEP or no encryption.
Here's the output of lspci

I just got a graphics card ATI installed on my fedora 10. I would like to see the functioning of the same with some kind of game. Any suggestions for game under fedora 10 to see the graphics application.
I installed 10.04 today, not having used this system for Ubuntu since 8.04. My wireless card (Texas Instruments ACX 111) worked perfectly in Windows XP and 7, and it worked on installation in 8.04.
I did a clean, full install of 10.04 (no dual boot or anything), but the wireless card is not working. The OS doesn't even seem to recognize that it is there because I can't even scan for networks, let alone connect.
The only reason I have a connection on this computer is because I am sharing the internet via ethernet from my Macbook.
I tried to run the XBMC live disc but could not fully boot. Each time I could only get to a command prompt after the XBMC splash screen with spinning circle. So I thought, "Maybe because my computer is sort of old (Pentium 4, 2.26 Ghz, 512 RAM) it doesn't like the XBMC Live disc. It will probably work if I install to the HDD." I installed it only to get the same result, XBMC splash screen then loading of command prompt. Does anyone know how to fix this? Is the computer compatible?
I was uninstalling some programs through the package manager, then restarted. When my netbook turned back on, I had no internet connection and the WiFi icon wasn't showing in the notification area as it usually does either. Says the card is functioning properly and everything. Other devices can connect to the WiFi.I'm kind of new to Ubuntu and searched around a bit, but am at a loss. HP Mini 110Ubuntu 10.10Broadcom BCM4313Edit: Quote:$ sudo ifconfig -s
I already posted this message on another thread but I'd like to start a new thread with it now, and add a few more details. My son and I are having trouble getting the graphics card to work properly in his computer. The resolution is good, but the graphics card is not fully functioning. He works on animation and graphics of several kinds, and the graphics programs cannot run without a fully functioning graphics card.
The computer will not run Blender and other graphics programs. Nor will it even allow for the "normal" "Visual Effects" in the "Appearance Preferences." (It comes up with the error: "Desktop effects could not be enabled," after it tries to find the driver.) The system is:
We know the graphics card works because it works in Windows. (We set up the computer to boot off of either of two hard drives -- either in Windows XP or Ubuntu 9.10, karmic.) Neither my son nor I understand much of the terminology on your forums, although I have been using Ubuntu for some years and have read quite a bit. (I also have the "Beginning Ubuntu Linux" book.) I love Ubuntu, but sometimes I just cannot figure out how to get some things running. We have tried many different ways of installing the drivers and setting up the xorg.conf file. We have followed the instructions on this and other threads. We also installed NVIDIA-Linux-x86-64-190.53-pkg2.run, as well as 173 and 185. The screen will only work at a proper resolution when we set the "Driver" to "nv" in the xorg.conf file. The screen goes completely blank and dead if we set the "Driver" to "nvidia." Then we need to reboot in safe mode and edit the xorg.conf file with VIM.
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?
