I'm running an Acer laptop on 13.04:
3.8.0-30-generic #44-Ubuntu SMP Thu Aug 22 20:52:24 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
The laptop has an SD/MMC card slot that has worked for me in the past. Now, however, when I insert an SD card (one that works in Windows), the kernel sees it but doesn't do anything with it:
Sep 9 10:02:49 adina-wired kernel: [ 52.552869] mmc0: new high speed SDHC card at address 0001 Sep 9 10:02:49 adina-wired kernel: [ 52.557819] mmcblk0: mmc0:0001 00000 7.46 GiB Sep 9 10:02:49 adina-wired kernel: [ 52.558974] mmcblk0: p1
Normally there'd be the part where it actually adds a
/dev/sdx mapping, but that doesn't happen. I've tried two working SD cards with exactly the same results.
I can provide
lspci, etc if that'd help. This sort of thing happens every now and then and I'm really mostly trying to learn how to poke around and diagnose the issue.
