sony vaio magic gate memory card won't work
« on: February 26, 2012, 04:47:24 pm »
hi, i have a problem with vector not letting me access my magic gate memory card, the os sees it but will not let me do anything with it; lsusb shows this:
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 054c:0056 Sony Corp. MG Memory Stick Reader/Writer

I tried to mount it in vasm and command and it will not allow me to do anything, i also tried disk utility, and that does nothing either, won't even see the size....can anyone help with this???

lsusb will show the card reader not the card.

Try as root using mount

That should show you where this device (the card) is.

If not you can try to remove the card. Then type
dmesg look at the output. Then insert the card and
type dmesg again and compare to previous.

i tried mount as root, then ran dmesg with the card in and out and this is what i get for output with anything i do:

[ 1743.018141]    : ASC=0x30 ASCQ=0x1
[ 1743.028120] sd 4:0:0:0: ioctl_internal_command return code = 8000002
[ 1743.028127]    : Sense Key : 0x3 [current]

theres a bigger list than that with the first numbers in brackets increasing but same output on the other lines...


anything we can do to fix this?
