I have system76 laptop (Gazelle Performance Black) with an SD card reader. It worked for all SD cards I have. But today I tried mini SD card using SD adapter. System recognizes the card but doesn't mount it. I can mount it manually, but I'm not sure it's a safe method. Here's corresponding piece from /var/log/syslog:

Dec 4 15:00:14 gazelle kernel: [ 2098.655887] mmc0: new SD card at address 0001
Dec 4 15:00:14 gazelle kernel: [ 2098.656047] mmcblk0: mmc0:0001 SD 1994240KiB
Dec 4 15:00:14 gazelle kernel: [ 2098.656099] mmcblk0: p1


If I use normal SD card, it's mounted automatically, and log looks like this:

Dec 4 14:58:30 gazelle kernel: [ 1995.190753] mmc0: new SD card at address b368
Dec 4 14:58:30 gazelle kernel: [ 1995.191033] mmcblk0: mmc0:b368 SD 975360KiB
Dec 4 14:58:30 gazelle kernel: [ 1995.191090] mmcblk0: p1
Dec 4 14:58:30 gazelle hald: mounted /dev/mmcblk0p1 on behalf of uid 1000

OS is Ubuntu Hardy (8.04) with all latest updates.

Any ideas?

Yes, it is safe to mount manually from a terminal. Just remember to unmount it first before you unplug it.

I have had similar problems with micro sd cards just not being recognised, formattable or working, using the SD piggy back adapter (that usually comes with the micro sd card). I got hold of a usb adapter for micro sd cards and that solved all my issues.

Upgrade to 10.04 solved this issue.
