Does anyone know how to get a built-in media card reader to work in Ubuntu 10.10? My laptop is a Gateway NV52.
It should "just work" and automatically mount when you insert a card.
If it's not, try this. Insert a card with something on it. Take a look at System > Administration > Disk Utility and see if the device appears as one of your storage devices. If you can see it in the disk utility, look at its partitions and make sure the format is something we can read (ext, ntfs, fat or others).
I have a similar problem.r I dont see my microSD card in nautilus or anywhere. However, I see my microSD card in diskutility but it is not mounted. And when I try to format it, i get the following error:
Error creating partition table: helper exited with exit code 1: cannot open /dev/sdb: No medium found
Can anyone help?
