    Toshiba A665-6050 xD Card Reader

    Recently purchased a Toshiba A665-6050 and installed 10.04. The card reader is not reading my xD cards. In the past when using Ubuntu once xD cards were inserted/removed they were auto mounted/unmounted.

    Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Have you tried to mount them yourself?

    If so or not and it doesn't work can you paste the dump from the command lspci

    I see the JMicron xD host controller listed. I wonder why it is not auto mounted as in the past?

    I did some poking around and it seems like this is a on going deal. I guess you tried another card to make sure it was not the source of your problems.

    I saw one post where the person changed the name of the card to sd. A lot of people are fiddling with the fstab ... which I am really green when it comes to working with that.

    You could give this thread a shot and see if it helps out. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=262696

    Maybe a fstab guru could help out.

    Thanks for the feedback, but after reading it does not seem like anyone really has a straight forward answer yet. Eventually after an update I will try and it will work, if not there is always Windows. I never will stray completely away from it for stuff like this. Thanks again my friend, I will see you around.

    Bluefoxox:

    I am interested in purchasing the Toshiba A665-S6065 notebook PC and installing Ubuntu 10.04 x64 bit on it. Other than the xD card reader problem, did you run into other technical problems during the installation process? Did you notice any other technical problems while running Ubuntu on your Toshiba A665-S6050 notebook PC?

    I would greatly appreciate a reply at your earliest convenience as this is the only thread that I found a fellow Toshiba owner who has a very similar model number.

    Thank you.

    Would you be able to walk me through mounting an xD card? I can not seem to be able to figure it out.

    I found a bug written in Spanish (I used Google's built in translator to read it).

    https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/111393

    There is a file recommended to make the xD card reader work. Being the eternal nOoB I do not want to proceed without some guidance. So, if someone has the time, please lend a hand :^)

    As I talk to myself on the forum...
    Progress! Contacted JMicron and was sent a file (it is attached). I can now mount and access files on an xD card via my notebook!

    Here are the steps to getting your xD reader to work. Go to the Ubuntu Software Center and search using the word mount. Install MountManager. Insert your xD card and go to System/Administration/MountManger

    Do you see your xD card? If yes you do not need to perform the next step. If no, continue.

    Download the file attached jmb38x.tar.gz

    Open the directory and unpack the file (I used Nautilus and dragged the folder jmb38x to the folder Downloads). If you are a command line junkie, do it your way.
    Open up a terminal: Applications/Accessories/Terminal
    Go to the jmb38x directory: type cd /Downloads/jmb38x
    Next Prep for install: type sudo make (enter your password when prompted)
    Then Install: sudo make install
    Reboot

    Insert your xD card (if you did not leave it in) and go to System/Administration/MountManger

    You should now see your xD card. You can simply go to Places upper left hand corner and you should be able to click on your xD cards mount point, FSpot may even ask you if you would like to import pictures if you have them on the card at this point (which is good). I have not figured out how to get the xD card to automount and show up on the desktop (as it has on older notebooks I have owned), yet. I am closing this post as solved, but feel free to contact me if you have any questions bluefoxox@gmail.com
