    Ricoh R5C833 Card Reader not working?

    Ladies and Gentlemen -

    I recently purchased an M1330. I have since installed (and and am now using) 8.04.1 on it. I am conducting an experiment with myself to see if a strict Linux lifestyle (at least on my laptop) is feasible.

    I've hit a snag. In an attempt to accomplish all that I do in Windows, in Ubuntu, I have found that the SD card reader does not work.

    Ricoh R5C833 Media Reader and 1394 Adapter

    It should be noted that this is my first major foray into Linux. I dabble in Backtrack when the, um, need arises, but I'm not familiar, really, at all.

    When I insert the SD card, nothing shows up, anywhere. I expected a drive icon to appear on the desktop as one does when a USB drive is inserted, but nothing shows.

    Searching the Computer shows no additional drive devices. Synaptic Package searches yield no results for "Ricoh."

    I require assistance.

    Thanks

    This is the pertinent info concerning Ricoh. It seems I had the controller model wrong, but it seems to be recognized, right?

    well, its detected and it worked out of the box in mine.
    But theres no linux support for Sony MemorySticks yet.
    Is that the type of card you're using?

    No, I am using SD (who uses Memory Stick?)

    I tried to different cards and when I insert it, nothing happens.

    Where should I be looking?

    Sony cameras use MS.
    Sorry, thats the only one I have. And I have to read them in WinXP anyway.

    Did you find anything searching the whole forums?
