Description Răzvan Sandu 2007-10-14 04:01:19 EDT

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)

    * SDIO

    * 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
the desktop.

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):

How reproducible:

Actual results:
Integrated card-reader on Dell Inspiron 1520 is not recognised.

Expected results:
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.
