Postby joutlan » Mon Mar 24, 2008 7:09 pm

My card reader is not working I just noticed.....anything I need to do? It worked straight away in Mint gnome. Thoughts?

There are some "hidden differences" ....
Which card reader?

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

My Dell Inspiron 9400 has a Richoh reader built in for SD, and to get LM KDE to use it I have to boot with a card in the reader, after boot, eject the card, put it back in and then do a refresh in Storage Media. After that the card shows up and is readable. With out a card in the slot it seems to just ignore that the reader is there during boot.

I'll check the 5 in 1 reader I have in the desktop when I get back home over the weekend. I know I can read it as I double checked it when I did the install, but don't remember doing anything special for it, but its one of the first installable 5/1 readers that would fit in a floppy drive slot, I've had it for a while.

So:

Put SD card or media into a slot
boot
open storage media
eject media
insert media
hit refresh

Media should appear.

Unfortunately I've got an office full of 1g and 512MB cards.......and I think the card in the reader at home is a 1GB too.

I think Richoh has a proiblem with xd cards
Do a search for

Code: Select all

card reader Ricoh

in the forum. There are only some 8 hits but a few are useful
You could also try the spelling Richoh

Solved....I reinstalled without the darned SD card in the reader, and now it magically works, no problem :)
