    Cool Problem with internal SD Card Reader (Hrdy Hrn)

    Alright, here's the lowdown:

    I've got a Toshiba Satellite M35-S359 and am running an Hardy Heron/XP dual boot (Ubuntu is what I mostly use, though. XP is for games).

    Everything works great (minus all the partitioning I had to do, when I upgraded my HD), the only problem I've got is that my SD card reader doesn't work on my Ubuntu partition.

    It works fine on my XP partition.

    It's really frustrating and I cannot, for the life of me, figure out what's wrong. I'm sure that if I knew more about Shell and whatnot, I could fix the problem myself but I haven't had the time to learn the needed commands/procedures to even begin to know what's going on.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the forums and welcome to Linux in general. Post the results of
    lspci
    on the terminal and then you will get the exact model of your SD Card Reader and maybe we can figure something out. Greetings from Miami, FL

    Toshiba America Info Systems SD TypA Controller is your SD Card reader.
    Apparently this is a bug which has been reported on launchpad. From what I have read Linux doesn't support that SD Card Reader. Sorry pal

    Just get a USB xD/SD adapter. They are like $6 shipped off ebay and they work great.

    My Toshiba laptop has a Ti 5 in 1 reader and SD cards work but xD cards do not.
    Windows XP - Excellent computer virus detector.
    Windows Vista - Most bloat for the money.
