Comment 49 for bug 111089

As reported on https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/311781 :

I have just tried latest daily kernel 3.5.0-999-generic_3.5.0-999.201206260421_amd64 but no different for the card reader.

Detailed test results:
- For both SD and MMC cards they are properly detected and auto-monted when inserted. You can see content list together with right size of the files but you can not open files greater then few kilobytes. This means that I can create and open text files but none of the pictures or videos
- XD and Sony Memory Stick cards are not recognised at all.
- Behaviour is exactly the same with Fedora 17

With current 3.2.0-25-generic kernel at least this card reader is not crashing OS.
