    6 in 1 card reader

    I just bought a SanDisk 6 in 1 card reader. I already have a SanDisk compact flash card reader, but i needed this for my SD card. Well, I can mount a compact flash card in it, but not SD or Memory Stick. I am using sdb1 and when it mounts the compact flash, it is in /mnt/removable, but when I try the other types, it says there is no entry in fstab or mtab. I tried making those entries, but no luck. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    Okay, I think I got it, I had to put the entry in fstab and mtab and now it seems to work.

    Perhaps there is a stale lock file?

    This is my mtab:

    Re:6 in 1 card reader

    Here is an answer I received which did the trick (suggestion #2)

    The issue is that linux only looks for one 'drive'
    (aka. LUN) per USB device which works for most USB
    equipment (except for our X in 1 devices).

    Thus, I recompiled my kernel with the setting to let
    the system probe for multiple LUNs (one LUN per
    drive). It worked great.

    Of course, then a buddy of mine found that you can set
    the max number of probed luns in your
    /etc/modules.conf (thereby avoiding a kernel
    recompile).

    Here's the syntax to add to /etc/modules.conf.

    options scsi_mod max_scsi_luns=4

    It can be > 4, but there's no real need since there
    are only four LUNs for the Sandisk
