SD card reader on laptop identified as hard disk.

I have several laptops with Beowulf and Ricoh PCIe sd card readers.
SD cards show up as hard disks i.e. they are labelled as non-removable in /sys/block/mmcblk0.... (Kernel issue?)
The devices are assigned to the disk group and not plugdev as I would expect. (eudev issue?)

Running vanilla Beowulf without the XFCE desktop and with TDE desktop.

The cards do not 'appear' on the desktop as all other pluggable storage device does.
Pmount run as my user still mounts them under /media/mmcblk0p1 without any problem.
Is this a problem for anybody else?

That is not my e-mail address :-)

Re: SD card reader on laptop identified as hard disk.

If they have cards in whilst booting up, then the system may consider them as hard drives, rather than removable - but it certainly wouldn't worry me - I prefer to manually mount all external media myself. smile

If you remove, & then reinsert the cards, do they show up on your desktop?
