Buit in card reader not reading cards...

Postby goombakid on Wed Dec 05, 2007 1:50 am

New problem. I want to connect my Memory Stick and load some stuff on it for my PSP. On my Averatec laptop, there is a built in card reader that can read SD, MMC, MS, and MS Pro Duo. According to Device Manager, the product is OZ711M1/MC1 4-in-1 MemoryCardBus Controller from the vendor O2 Micro, Inc.

When I go into terminal and use lspci, the following comes up for the card reader:

00:09.0 CardBus bridge: O2 Micro, Inc. OZ711M1/MC1 4-in-1 MemoryCardBus Controller (rev 20)
00:09.1 CardBus bridge: O2 Micro, Inc. OZ711M1/MC1 4-in-1 MemoryCardBus Controller (rev 20)
00:09.2 System peripheral: O2 Micro, Inc. OZ711Mx 4-in-1 MemoryCardBus Accelerator

In case the information is needed, here is what is called up with lspci:

00:00.0 Host bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 760/M760 Host (rev 03)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SG86C202

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 661/741/760 PCI/AGP or 662/761Gx PCIE VGA Display Adapter

Any ideas on why it's not reading? My laptop is an Averatec 6110, using an AMD Sempron 2800+. Any help would be appreciated.

You might try installing "pcscd" with synaptic. I'm not sure if 02micro is supported or not. 02micro has given a lot of Linux users trouble. They don't release Linux drivers for their hardware. If it doesn't work, the only other solution is to buy a USB card reader.
