Default No card-reader support under MacOS X 10.5.7? - 10-01-2009, 04:53 PM

Today I determine that MacOS X 10.5.7 does not recognize the internal card reader. No mounting of SD-cards, no information about the card reader in the System Profiler. Under windows the integrated card reader works. What is the problem and how can I solve it?

Thank you in advance

My configuration:
Dell Mini 9 | 2 GB RAM | 64 GB Runcore SSD | Integrated Bluetooth, WLAN, WWAN, 0.3 Mpixel Webcam | USB Legacy Support Off | MacOS X 10.5.7 via DellEFI 1.2a5 method | Windows XP

My Kingston 16 gB works find for me. Although it seems, thinking back, It had some issues initially. I think I could see it in Disk Utility before Finder. I reformated for the Mac and didn't have any more issues. I'm using 3 SDHC card regularly. I have heard reference to people having trouble with different brands, but I've seen no problems.

Mini-9> A04 Bios | 32 gb SSD | 2 gb RAM | 16 gb Kingston SDHC | 1.3MP Camera | BT |
| USB Legacy Mode: Off | DellEFI 1.1 | Track Pad_17 | OSX 10.5.7 |
