Few weeks ago I mentioned that Sdcard can't be mounted under ubuntu 11.04 on eeeepc 901. I can see /dev/sdc and /dev/sdd, but no partitions on them /dev/sda and /dev/sdb are system disks, sdc was usually a card in card reader. Rebooted twice so far. This SD card works good in camera.

update: tried another SD card - mounted ok, then I returned back to previous SD card it mounted normally. weird. fsck.vfat returned no errors. –  Drey Nov 11 '11 at 1:00
