    jaunty 9.04 media sd card reader not working

    just bought a new hp p6270z. everything works except media card reading. even the media cards in my usb-connected printer don't work (the card reader in the printer worked on my old pc with jaunty). i tried 9.10 karmic live cd, and the card readers work (both the internal and printer). however, i tried 9.10 when it came out and i just hate it. so, does anyone have any ideas what i can do to stay with 9.04 and still get my card readers to work? i do notice a message on boot with 9.04 about unable to load some module.depend file or something like that but goes by too fast. should i try the newest kernel in the 9.04 repo? or try some other upgrade in the 9.04 repo?

    thanks.

    found the answer at http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-250856.html

    Code:
    modprobe tifm_sd
    and make sure to put the above line in /etc/modules so it works every time

    the above didn't really fix it - the media card reader would work if i had plugged in a flash drive first - weird. anyway, the real solution was here:
