16 GB SDHC Memory Card Problem (RESOLVED) - 07-29-2009, 06:36 PM
My apologies if this has been posted before, but I was having a good time using the 9.04 Remix until I realized that my 16GB AData Card was not being recognized. After some web searching, I ran across this website:
Filthy Pants: A Computer Blog: Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope on Acer Aspire One
Which contained this info:
The left-side SD reader is otherwise not acknowledged, i.e. it doesn't create a /dev/ entry when cards are inserted and hotplug doesn't mount the disk (this problem also exists on the Dell Mini 9, so you guys can benefit from this too). To correct the situation, type into a terminal:
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/optionsand add (be wary of line breaks; I recommend copy/pasting instead of manually typing):
options sdhci debug_quirks=1 ProblemType: BugAfter a reboot, my card works as it should, and hopefully yours will too if you have this problem.
Again, not sure if this has already been discussed, I just wanted to point out a fix for a problem that some people might run into. Thanks to Hunter K. for the fix on this!
