View Full Version : [ubuntu] Texas Instruments PCIxx21/x515/xx12 & Memory Stick

August 15th, 2009, 11:24 AM
Hello, I have a laptop with this Card Reader "Texas Instruments PCIxx21/x515/xx12", the one I have read should work with Memory Stick cards, but when I plug in a ms card, nothing happend. I'd like to know if there exists any solution to this or why is this happening.
Extra information:
daniel@daniel-laptop:~$ dmesg
in -> [ 745.545043] tifm_core: MemoryStick card detected in socket 0:0
out -> [ 797.807184] tifm0 : demand removing card from socket 0:0

daniel@daniel-laptop:~$ lspci (all texas instruments computer has)
08:00.0 CardBus bridge: Texas Instruments PCIxx12 Cardbus Controller
08:00.1 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Texas Instruments PCIxx12 OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller
08:00.2 Mass storage controller: Texas Instruments 5-in-1 Multimedia Card Reader (SD/MMC/MS/MS PRO/xD)
08:00.3 SD Host controller: Texas Instruments PCIxx12 SDA Standard Compliant SD Host Controller

I have also tried to load manually the modules: tifm_7xx1, tifm_sd and tifm_core, but once loaded, the behavior is the same.

I hope you can help. Thank you very much for all.
