I've just plugged in a internal usb card reader

Genesys Logic, Inc. USB 2.0 33-in-1 Card Reader

$lsusb:

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub

Bus 002 Device 004: ID 15ca:00c3 Textech International Ltd. Mini Optical Mouse

But when I plug in a card nothing happens.

Any thoughts?

Hi Software Development, are you still looking for an answer? –  Luis Alvarado Apr 6 '12 at 0:33

1 Answer 1

If it helps, I had a couple of those "33-in-1" card readers. They never worked in Linux, Windows or anything with electricity. I am not saying all but from 7 I tested 4 had the same issue. Of those 4 only one slot of SD worked, the rest did not. So maybe the problem might be the device and not Linux. I suggest to test it on Windows and if it is bad, buy a new one and test it on the place you are buying it from.
