    Centon SD Card - Jaunty SOLVED

    I have a dell mini 9 and recently upgraded to Jaunty. Jaunty seems slicker and smoother than Hardy. But I have run into an odd issue with the media card reader. For some reason it recognizes other SD cards, but will not recognize a 4 GB Centon SD Card that I purchased off woot. Prior to the upgrade the card worked fine, any help is appreciated.

    Additionally, I was wondering if someone could recommend a portable hard drive that can be used with Ubuntu. Thanks.

    Re: Centon SD Card - Jaunty

    There is a bug in Jaunty that causes certain SD cards to not work correctly with the Mini9. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/359323

    However, there is a workaround.

    In terminal type:

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/options
    Paste the following into the file:

    Code:
    options sdhci debug_quirks=1
    ProblemType: Bug
    Architecture: i386
    DistroRelease: Ubuntu 9.04
    Package: linux-image-2.6.28-6-generic 2.6.28-6.17
    ProcCmdLine: User Name=UUID=e309fb14-05db-4e9a-b137-c6bf63eeb6a4 ro quiet splash elevator=noop
    ProcEnviron:
    SHELL=/bin/bash
    LANG=it_IT.UTF-8
    ProcVersionSignature: Ubuntu 2.6.28-6.17-generic
    SourcePackage: linux
    Save the file and reboot. Your card should now be able to be read.

    I can't read my 'SanDisk SDHC card 16gb'.. tried your trick and still nothing. Any other ideas?

    What about people like me who are on the AMD64 version of Ubuntu?

    Really have to reboot? There's no other way to restart the required services?

    Re: Centon SD Card - Jaunty

    I also have a Sandisk SDHC disk, which I cannot read in AMD64 Jaunty on my desktop, or I386 on my netbook.

    Thank goodness I still have XP in dual boot on the netbook! I have still to try the cure above on the netbook: it is now so close to the release of 9.10 that I may try that and see if anything magical happens with my card first.

    In fact only "options sdhci debug_quirks=1" is required.
