- i know this may be a dumb question, but do you hook
it up, and *then* insert a card, and *then* do a 'df
-h' (assuming an automount daemon is running)?
- btw, it looks to me that not all readers are created
- for example, i went to Best Buy and bought a
whiz-bang 12-in-1 Sandisk multi-card reader...
packaging said it worked w/Software From Satan and
Mac OS X... it didn't work with OS X and barely worked
- took it back, got my money back, and then bought a
'GE 19-in-1 Card Reader' for less than $6 (and
one-quarter the cost of the Sandisk POS) at the local
Publix supermarket... and guess what? it works great
on *any* OS...
