Greetings all;

I have a card reader plugged into a usb port.  I recognizes a 512meg pny 
cf card just fine, but wwhen I plug in a 256meg Lexar cf, the led comes 
on, but there is no reaction from linux. /dev/sda is not created, 
nothing.

Is this a kernel config problem, or is this particular cf known to be a 
bad bird?

-- 
Cheers, Gene

I do that with CF and memory stick, what kernel, distribution, etc? I 
would suspect something in hotplug not noticing.

I presume you have tried this from cold boot, so any issues with 
unplugging and plugging another flash are removed.

Ignore me, I opened the second one I'd bought at the same time and it 
worked as expected.  Bad card in the blisterpack.

No I didn't try that.  See the other ignore me message for the answer.

Thanks Bill.
