Description of problem:
It seems the integrated multi-format card-reader on Dell Inspiron 1520 notebook
is not supported/recognised.
Reader seems to be manufactured by Ricoh. The 8-in-1 memory card reader reads
the following memory cards:
* Secure Digital (SD)
* MultiMediaCard (MMC)
* Memory Stick
* Memory Stick PRO
* xD-Picture Card
* Hi Speed-SD
* Hi Density-SD
Inserting a test xD card in the reader doesn't mount it - no icon shows up on
Here is the smolt hardware profile of Dell Inspiron 1520:
and here is the full output of /sbin/lspci -vv
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Integrated card-reader on Dell Inspiron 1520 is not recognised.
Integrated card-reader should have hardware support.
Inserting a card when running in X mode should mount it automatically and a new
icon should appear on the desktop.
A canonical way to manually mount/unmount the cards when in text mode should be
provided, including a way to find out card-reader's device name.
Only SD cards work, there is no kernel support for any other type. Upstream
developers know about this already.
