Bug Description

I am running Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal on Fujitsu E8210 laptop. It has built in media slot / card reader which does not seem to be working with the latest release of ubuntu. It worked with previous older releases but I haven't used it for a while (the card reader) and am not sure when exactly (during which distro) it stopped working. I know for sure that it did not function in two previous releases.

I am running Win7 in dual boot and the card reader is working fine in windows environment.

I see this bug was tagged as expired, but this still affects me. I have a MSI M670 with O2Micro SD reader and I still can't read any memory card.

When I do dmesg | grep mmc this is the output:

[ 1.970791] mmc0: Unknown controller version (16). You may experience problems.

Also, a df | grep mmc shows no results, and lspci | grep SD:

keeper121, please do not adjust the status without at least a comment as to why this is. As well, given that gill_za is the original reporter, it would be up to gill_za if this issue is resolved or not.

Keng-Yu Lin, thank you for your comments. Despite the vendor being the same, it would appear that the device id being different would be enough for their not to be enough overlap between your device and the original report. What do you think?

gill_za, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If so, could you please test for this with the latest development release of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in the development release from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available (not the daily folder) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

As well, please remove the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your understanding.

I don't know what anybody did to resolve this issue... at least for me it still exists.

mmc0: Unknown controller version (3). You may experience problems.
mmc0: Hardware doesn't specify timeout clock frequency.

lspci shows following controller:

I am running ubuntu 13.10 on a Thinkpad W540

Oliver, thank you for your comment. So your hardware and problem may be tracked, could you please file a new report with Ubuntu by executing the following in a terminal while booted into a Ubuntu repository kernel (not a mainline one) via:
ubuntu-bug linux

From #1239938, this bug seems to be fixed in linux-lts-saucy (3.11.0-18.32~precise1).
Could you give it a try ?

If some mmc cards can't be read, could you try "options sdhci debug_quirks=0x40" mentioned in following link?
