Description of problem:
When I stick a SD card into the 'unit' it is not detected, or at least not mounted.
Here's some information that might be useful.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert SD Card into the 'slot'
Nothing appears in computer.
No entry is added to /etc/fstab
The 'device' should be mounted and appear on the desktop (which won't happen at
the moment due to another bug (see:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=170068) but at least it
should appear in /etc/fstab and be mounted /media/???
Apparently support for this is/has been developed:
I'm not sure what sort of time line they are looking at for inclusion in the
kernel, but I'm signing on to the mailing list to find out more.
My laptop (asus s5a) has the same flash card reader, and it is working if I
manually modprobe mmc_block first. I only have mmc cards, so I have not tested
with anything else, but the card is detected as /dev/mmcblk0p1 and working ok.
*** Bug 185546 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I have a Dell Latitude X1 laptop with that same Ricoh SD/MMC reader, and last I
tried with FC development, when I put an SD card inside, "something happened"
but I couldn't see any /dev/something listed in dmesg output, so I didn't know
how to mount its content. Note that the driver seems to not like suspend on this
laptop. I don't have any more SD or MMC card at hand to reproduce, unfortunately.
Does this work with latest rawhide?
Hmmm, maybe I should go buy a cheap SD card to test it... or Rodd? Any news?
It works well with one exception.
I had to `modprobe mmc_block` before the card was automatically detected.
Otherwise it worked a treat. The card appeared in the Computer folder, in
Places and in the Disk Mounter applet in the panel.
File activity was quick and worked!
Apart from the need to modprobe mmc_block it's all looking good. Is there
anyway that this can automatically happen when you insert a card?
Can you do the following:
- eject card
- rmmod mmc_block
- run 'udevmonitor'
- insert card
Do you get any events from udevmonitor?
Glad to hear it works with HAL. Reassigning to udev as we probably need a rule
to load the appropriate modules.
After (and only after) I loaded mmc_core, my Thinkpad X41 (not tablet) properly
detected, mounted and unmounted both an MMC and an SD card via gnome-volume-manager.
ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="mmc", RUN+="/sbin/modprobe mmc_block"
in /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules makes things work automagically
Building a udev with the rule added
Zack, does the udev rule in comment 11 make things work for you?
Why yes it does! :)

[root@localhost ~]# lsmod | grep mmc
mmc_core 31049 1 sdhci
[root@localhost ~]# udevmonitor
udevmonitor prints the received event from the kernel [UEVENT]
and the event which udev sends out after rule processing [UDEV]
The first set of two is when I stick the card in, the second set when I pull the

I added this to (almost) the end of the file and it "works like a bought one".
MMC cards work fine on my new HP laptop using the Ricoh device on FC6. When the
card is added, the module loads, udev creates /dev/mmcblk0 and /dev/mmcblk0p1,
and I can then manually mount the partition
Can gnome-volume-manager be modified to recognize the device and mount the
partition automatically under /media? That would finish the process nicely.
