I have an issue with my recent Ubuntu. Actually I have all drivers (USB, WiFi, etc ) working fine however when I insert the SD I can't detect it.

Also I find the following error kernel log:

[  242.936702] mmc0: error -5 whilst initialising SD card
[  244.856671] mmc0: error -5 whilst initialising SD card
[  245.756789] mmc0: error -5 whilst initialising SD card
[  246.657133] mmc0: error -5 whilst initialising SD card
[  248.577135] mmc0: error -5 whilst initialising SD card
[  249.480884] mmc0: error -5 whilst initialising SD card

Below some useful details about my pc:

There is a kernel compatibility issue with some sd cards (mainly SDHC or SDXC).

A workaround is below, but the IO speed is about 10x lower :(

Write a file called /etc/modprobe.d/sdcard.conf with this content:

options sdhci debug_quirks2=0x2

Let's remove and probe some modules:

 sudo rmmod sdhci_acpi sdhci_pci sdhci
 sudo modprobe sdhci; sudo modprobe sdhci_acpi; sudo modprobe sdhci_pci

After this, your SD card must be shown at notification bar.

To save all this configurations, run:

 sudo update-initramfs -u
0

Try this:

sudo apt install --reinstall udisks2

then reboot the Linux.

    @PabloFerreira: In that case you should link this question to the one in your comment and not simply duplicate the answer. Please note that the linked question describes quite different symptoms than this one. – David Foerster Feb 3 '17 at 19:53
  • That is why I said this again. I not upgrade from Ubuntu 14.04, I just did the clean install, but the problems is there in same way. – Pablo Ferreira Feb 3 '17 at 20:20
