Description Eric Hartwell 2004-12-21 10:14:55 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.3; Linux) (KHTML, like Gecko)

Description of problem:
Micro CF is a ROM/CF reader combo device. 

When a Compact Flash card is in the reader, it can be accessed using /dev/sda1. The internal flash ROM of the device using FC3. A previous kernel (not sure which - FC1 I believe) was able to access the internal flash as /dev/sda and the CF as /dev/sda1, using them concurrently.  

Trying to use the device without a CF card in, dmesg says: 

usb 2-2: new full speed USB device using address 5
scsi3 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
  Vendor: USB CARD  Model: READER            Rev: 0.20
  Type:   Direct-Access                      ANSI SCSI revision: 02

An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem.   Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.

If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.

Thank you.
