The OS doesn't seem to detect my SDHC card when I insert it. Does Linux support this hardware?

ls /dev/sd*

/dev/sda  /dev/sda1  /dev/sda2  /dev/sda3  /dev/sda4  /dev/sda5  /dev/sd

Maybe you need some drivers. My computer (Arch as well) didn't use to detect the touch-pad, I had to install an additional driver. –  JMCF125 Feb 9 at 19:55
    
@JMCF125 How did you find the appropriate drivers? –  ArchHaskeller Feb 9 at 20:57
    
Arch Wiki! I just googled "touch pad arch linux", and installed extra/xf86-input-synaptics. Possibly if you do the same with the card type, and brand if the type isn't enough, it might work. –  JMCF125 Feb 9 at 21:02
    
It seems we are in trouble. Have you considered this: ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1136196 ? Can we verify that at least does read simple small size SD and not SDHC? Perhaps trying it with a much earlier kernel version? –  user2383408 May 31 at 23:50
    
@user2383408 I don't have any SD cards. Is there a way to test the card reader without SD cards? –  ArchHaskeller Jun 1 at 2:36
