i am running a dual boot HP laptop about two years old. i am using windows vista and lucid lynx, having upgraded ubuntu from hardy heron.

i cannot get my SD card to be recognized or mounted on the OS. i have been trying a variety of ubuntu and linux help sites - which all state the bug is fixed - to no positive effect.

in fact, i have had to re-install linux twice due to my lack of knowledge with linux code.

i am very frustrated. Vista isn't looking so bad at this stage... if i could get access to it; grup has robbed me of that, too :( but that's a different issue that i can forgo once i get linux to see and mount my 1GB and 8GB SD cards... hopefully...

1. gparted 0.5.1 does not recognize my 1GB Lexar MicroSD card.
2. "sudo -lu" does not see the drive either.
3. "dmesg | tail" shows:
      [ 419.882063] end_request: I/O error, dev mmcblk0, sector 19
      [ 419.884992] mmcblk0: error -84 transferring data, sector 20, nr 4, card status 0x900
      .
      .

      [ 420.280755] end_request: I/O error, dev mmcblk0, sector 7
4. i can see the drive and format in using Gnome Format, but that's it.

did i mention i was very frustrated with the "out of the box" capabilities of Ubuntu?
