    "failed to enumerate device in port..." issue when plugging SD cards

    Hi


    I've been having this issue since I installed Ubuntu 12.04 (32bit) in my new laptop (an HP envy4 1050ca) a few months ago. It doesnot read SD cards, even when plugged to a an external reader, or directly to the built-in reader.
    dmesg command gives the following message

    "failed to enumerate device in port #" (# is the port where I had connected my sd cards)

    I have tryed a few possible solutions, like installing usbmount, but none worked

    Does anybody have any idea on this?

    Thank for the help!

    Re: "failed to enumerate device in port..." issue when plugging SD cards

    Hi


    I've researched more into the issue, it happens that it is a problem concerning xhci_hcd.
    The output to
    Code:
    tail -f /var/log/syslog
    was

    Code:
    usb 3-1: new full-speed USB device number 4 using xhci_hcd
    usb 3-1: Device not responding to set address.
    usb 3-1: Device not responding to set address.
    usb 3-1: device not accepting address 4, error -71
    hub 3-0:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 1
    any idea? hope anybdy has any clue about this

    thanks

    Are you attempting to connect SDHC or SDXC on a card reader not capable of that? Does the card reader work for those cards on any other computer or OS?

    All my cards can be read (both using an external reader or the built-in one) under my windows partition

    Re: "failed to enumerate"... SD card reading and unsuported built in reader

    So finally I kinda got on top of this. So I still have the problem with the external reader (although now it only happens sometimes), but I made the built in card reader work just perfect. So

    -my external reader works SOMETIMES. I upgraded to linux mint 14 (12.10 based) so I guess the upgrade fixed this partially

    -however, the built-in reader continued not to work. When typing lspci in a terminal, the output was


    Code:
      Unassigned class [ff00]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device 5289 (rev 01)
    This is the sdcard built in reader. If you have this same one you can solve this by:


    a)download this package
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/9718...ts_bpp.tar.bz2

    b) follow these instructions

    * In Dolphin (or equivalent) right click and "Extract > Extract Archive here"
    * Open a terminal window
    * Navigate to Downloads / rts_bpp
    * At the command prompt enter
    su root
    * Enter root password
    * Type the following commands:
    make
    make install
    depmod -a
    * To get the driver working instantly type the following or reboot

    (see original thread here http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php?topic=109447.0)

    And voilá! The card reader works perfectly! I dont know if it will work with other card readers, with mine works just perfect

    Hope this helps
    Cheers
