I have a 2GB Transcend SD card for my Camera but when I entered it in my laptop's SD slot then it is not mounted automatically by Lubuntu. I did not have the same problem with Ubuntu. I can not see it also in the graphical Storage Device Manager.

I tried the following workarounds on the bugs mentioned in 1 and 2 but the problem still persists.

Kernel Version: 3.5.0-25-generic

Ok, I tried dmesg and here are the steps:

dmesg output:

[ 9219.520160] mmc0: Timeout waiting for hardware interrupt. 
[ 9229.536177] mmc0: Timeout waiting for hardware interrupt.

How can I resolve this issue?

I tried it also with Linuxmint (Linux version 3.5.0-17-generic) in my laptop and it still does not work...

Have you tried another card? This looks like a bad card like I've had in the past. –  Drake Clarris Mar 11 '13 at 19:26

MmountManager Install mountmanager is described as "The program for mounting of storage devices, flash cards, removable disks in Linux". Even if it doesn't solve your problem completely, MountManager will make it easier for you to mount and unmount your SD card manually.

You can take a look at a screenshot of mountmanager by searching for it in Synaptic Package Manager and clicking on "Get Screenshot", and of course you can also install it from Synaptic.

The Mountmanager does not show the SD card as well. –  goun Mar 6 '13 at 14:18

I'm not sure if you're experiencing the same issue as me, but this gets it to automount on my laptop:

sudo -i
echo 1 > /sys/bus/pci/rescan
exit

First check if really not mounted:

mount  -l

If not, try to mount it manually: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/hardy/man8/mount.8.html shows you how to do this. Looks complicated, but is pretty simple after you have done it once.

I am not quite sure how to do this... There is also another problem. I can connect my Camera with USB anyway but for some reasons I can not copy large video files. When I start copying large files from my Camera to Laptop through USB (the USB is connected to the Camera) then the copy fails because after some time the device seems unmounted. Do you know why is that so? It works fine with image files or small video files. –  goun Mar 1 '13 at 17:31
    
Well, maybe a dumb question here, did it work with Windows/Mac OS X before? Else I would say it is an implementation fail by the camera . Had same problem with my HD Camcorder, both Ubuntu and Windows and couldn't fix it... –  GreyscaleImag3s Mar 1 '13 at 19:25
    
Yes, it worked with Windows and Ubuntu before but it does not work with Lubuntu anymore –  goun Mar 3 '13 at 13:38
    
strange, sorry no clue then... –  GreyscaleImag3s Mar 4 '13 at 11:10
