I'm running Linux Mint 16. I have a external card reader that has CF, MS, SD, and SM readers in it as well as 3 USB ports. Is there a way to hide the card reader ports from nemo's my computer when there's no cards inserted? I know it's easy to do in windows but i don't know if it's possible in mint.

  • What card reader model and driver are you using? It should appear in lsusb -t if connected via USB. – Wilf Jul 19 '14 at 11:03

    I didn't understand any of the information given from the command lsusb -t. You can view it here: link. The device in question is a fairly old nGear USB 2.0 Combo Card Reader that doesn't have a model number or anything on it. – Elias Turner Jul 20 '14 at 4:01
  • Possibly this answer can help. I don’t have a complete answer, but in my case my external card reader creates /dev/sdd and /dev/sde and a card is inserted as /dev/sde1; so it could be possible (e.g.) to hide /dev/sdd (in fact in my case Nemo doesn’t show any sdd or sde when there is no card, so I don’t have myself this issue). – Seb35 May 26 '16 at 12:01
