I have an HP Pavilion here and everything works fine out of the box with ubuntu hardy, except that i cannot get the SD Card reader to read an SD card. The card is not locked and it works under windblows.


$ dmesg | tail -n 10

[ 155.566798] mmc0: error -84 whilst initialising SD card


is this a hardware problem? thanks


EDIT: It appears to be the card. I tried putting another card (SanDisk) and it worked. THe original is a Kingston
