Laptop cardreader, ENE Tecnology

13 08 2007

If you have a laptop and it has a cardreader that doesn’t seem to work on linux.

This one lspci reports as:
06:04.1 FLASH memory: ENE Technology Inc ENE PCI Memory Stick Card Reader Controller (rev 01)
06:04.2 Generic system peripheral [0805]: ENE Technology Inc ENE PCI Secure Digital Card Reader Controller (rev 01)
06:04.3 FLASH memory: ENE Technology Inc FLASH memory: ENE Technology Inc: (rev 01)
06:04.4 FLASH memory: ENE Technology Inc SD/MMC Card Reader Controller (rev 01)

Check, for /dev/ files that look lik /dev/mmcblk0 and /dev/mmcblk0p1. It may just work (on recent kernels).

mount with something like “sudo mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt”

All the files will be under /mnt/ in this example.

and don’t forget to umount it with “sudo umount /mnt” before you yank it out.

if it does work, and you see nice card inserting messages etc in dmesg | tail , file a friendly bug report on your favourite automounter. It should *just* work.

Yes, I personly don’t use automounters as it make that way I don’t forget to unmount it. But yes, most automounters should be configured for it now.
