    SD card reader

    I've never needed my SD card reader up until now.
    And I've been forced to conclude it simply doesn't work.
    Sadly enough, the driver (available for download at RealTek) does not compile due to errors.

    Kind regards,
    Joris

    ps: I've included the output of sudo lshw, to give a fair indication of the exact hardware.

    Code:

    Re: SD card reader

    Mine (the built-in one) won't work either on one computer we have. Solution: bought a USB Targus SD (and related formats) card reader for about $5. It has never failed to work. Plug in and use. Wal*Mart (in U.S.A.) and other shops.

    Probably not the solution you are looking for, however.

    Re: SD card reader

    That's the one thing I generally dislike about these fora, peoply trying to modify your original question :-p
    It is indeed, not quite the solution I'm after.

    Thank you for putting in the time and effort to reply though.

    This command was executed without any medium inserted in the card reader.
