I have a read many other posts on this issue and believe that Ubuntu 12.04 is not even recognizing my SD Card Reader as just that:
- Computer Model: Metabox (Australian builder of Clevo laptops) / Clevo P150EM
- OS: Ubuntu 12.04 (64 Bit)
- CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3720QM CPU @ 2.60GHz
- HD: 120GB Intel 550/520MB/s SSD
According to the people who built my computer, the specs of the SD Card reader in my comp are as follows:
- Manufacture: Realtek Semiconduct Corp.
- Location: PCI bus 3
- Hardware ID: PCI\Ven_10EC&DEV_5289&SUBSYS_51051558
- Physical device object name: \Device\NTPNP_PCI0015
Here are the relevant outputs of the following commands run from the terminal:
sudo lshw *-generic UNCLAIMED description: Unassigned class product: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. vendor: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:03:00.0 version: 01 width: 32 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress msix vpd bus_master cap_list configuration: latency=0 resources: memory:f6a00000-f6a0ffff sudo lspci -v -nn 03:00.0 Unassigned class [ff00]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.

Does the unassigned details of these outputs mean that Ubunutu desn't know that the SD Card Reader is one and what do with it? and if so how should I go about fixing it??
