    Cool REALTEK SD card reader 5209 - help

    I am using ubuntu 12.10 - My SD card reader does not work at all. When I insert SD card nothing happens.

    Here is the lspci output
    03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 06)
    04:00.0 Unassigned class [ff00]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTS5209 PCI Express Card Reader (rev 01)

    It looks I am using rts_pstor module ..

    lsmod | grep rts
    rts_pstor 433804 0

    It is as if the card was not insterted correctly but works fine on windows

    Any help is greatly appreciated..
