Please provide more information. You can start with running lspci and lsusb in console and copy the results here. –  behnam Aug 16 '12 at 17:55

1 Answer 1

(this is not a response, just a long comment)

Okay, the good news is that you see that the USB device is already recognized: 0bda:0139 Realtek Semiconductor Corp., but the bad news is that now you need to look at the kernel logs to see what happens when you put a card in the reader.

Here are the steps:

  1. Open a terminal and run sudo -i to get login as root;
  2. Run tail -n0 -f /var/log/dmesg (as root);
  3. Put a card in the reader, and wait a few seconds. You should get a few lines of log printed on the screen.
  4. Copy those lines here (again in the question body) to see if we can get anything from it.

I have a probleme with this: this comand don't show anything, it just blinking, after inserting card the same. –  Z37 Aug 17 '12 at 11:25
    
Okay, not seeing anything there kind of confirms that the device is not recognized as a USB Mass Storage. You can try the methods mentioned on help.ubuntu.com/community/DebuggingUSBStorage to see if you can find any clue of what's going wrong. –  behnam Aug 17 '12 at 17:12
    
Anyway, I think I wouldn't be able to help any more, as I don't have access to a similar hardware. But you can update your question with more detail and someone else might be able to help you. :) –  behnam Aug 17 '12 at 17:14
    
ok.thank you :) –  Z37 Aug 17 '12 at 22:29
