Hello everyone...
I have an USB card reader connected to one of the USB ports and it is identified by the system:
Quote
vector:/~
root:# lsusb
Bus 2 Device 1: ID 0000:0000 
Bus 1 Device 2: ID 0dda:2005 Integrated Circuit Solution, Inc.
Bus 1 Device 3: ID 03f0:c602 Hewlett-Packard
Bus 1 Device 1: ID 0000:0000

I want to read a SD memory card with .jpg files on it.
I'm not able to read the card.
What do I miss?
Is this a 'mount' problem?
Is there a special procedure to access the card?

Try plugging in the reader with the card already inserted (that is, if you haven't already done it this way).

Thanks joe1962, It works....
Although it is a bit inconvenient because I do not have an USB port at the front.
OK, at least I know everything is right with my installation.... Smiley

I highly recommend spending a few dollars on a powered USB 2 hub. You can plug it into the USB port and sit the hub on your desktop where it's easily accessible.

If your port is USB 1.1, a USB 2 hub is backward compatible. It won't operate at USB 2 speeds, though.

I can live with it as it is....The computer is a 1997 veteran and more or less a study object.
Thanks for the thought.

There is a workaround that has been mentioned in the forum before. In VL 5.9 Std there is a "refresh media" (or something like that) option off the vasm menu on the toolbar. It works on some systems, but not all. When it does work, you can leave the drive plugged in and dismount / change card / refresh media, then it will mount. This runs "sginfo -l" as root, so in any other VL, you could run the command in a console.
