Description of problem:
The system does not detect a Lexar compact flash card reader that connects via USB. I have connected it to different USB ports on my machine with the same result. I have also connected the card reader and card to a Macintosh system which detected it successfully, so I am reasonably certain that this is not a hardware problem.
My system is able to detect my USB printer and also a USB memory stick. The card reader is the only thing it will not detect.
The card reader worked successfully under FC 5, this problem has arisen only since I upgraded to FC 6.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert card into card reader that is plugged in to a USB port.
2.Watch nothing happen.
Nothing! No new window in gnome, no /disk directory in /media
Under FC 5, I got Nautilus window in Gnome with the files on the card listed. I could also list the directory /media/disk and its subdirectories in emacs dired and move files to my hard drive.
