Have a look on www.thinkwiki.org and see whether they have a patch that allows the xD card to be supported under Linux.

Re: Ricoh xD card reader in R61

I have already checked there. Some of the articles even claim that there's no support for the SD card reader, which is not correct. Anyway, no help from thinkwiki I'm afraid, that's why I wrote here, kinda hoping you will know the answer :smileytongue:

Cheers,

Tom

I am a Linux idiot, don't really use it. Maybe try Carbon_Unit the mod on this forum, he is quite into Linux, so he may give you a few pointers in the right direction.

Re: Ricoh xD card reader in R61

It might help if you mentioned the distro you're using, kernel version etc.  On ubuntu 8.04 I see this for my xD reader on my SL400:

 

 *-system:3 UNCLAIMED
                description: System peripheral
                product: xD-Picture Card Controller
                vendor: Ricoh Co Ltd
                physical id: 0.4
                bus info: pci@0000:0d:00.4
                version: 12
                width: 32 bits
                clock: 33MHz
                capabilities: pm bus_master cap_list
                configuration: latency=248

 

I don't have anything to plug into it.  The SD slot works a charm.  Is that related?
