Bug Description

Binary package hint: udisks

While testing the internal data card reader for Natty Beta 1, I found out that the mini SD is mounted the first time you insert it in the card reader, but after unmounting it, if you take it out and re-insert it in the card reader it does not mount anymore.
It looks like bug 743303.
I also have an HP laptop: G62 Notebook PC.
I have the same card reader as in bug 743303: ID 0bda:0158 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. USB 2.0 multicard reader.
I'm attaching file lsusb.txt.

Same behavior here - here's what my dmesg shows on card insertion:

[ 86.537936] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdc] 31457280 512-byte logical blocks: (16.1 GB/15.0 GiB)
[ 86.539926] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdc] No Caching mode page present
[ 86.539931] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through
[ 86.543804] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdc] No Caching mode page present
[ 86.543812] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through
[ 86.544743] sdc: sdc1

Then nothing. The card worked on the Alpha, and it worked in 10.10 (and even in the beta over the weekend, prior to updates).
This is on an Acer 5742, via the integrated reader.

Plugging the same card into a USB reader it pops right up.

When you right click on the cards icon you should have 2 choices, I'm running Linux Mint and don't know if the choices are labeled the same in Ubuntu, but in Mint the choices are 'Eject' and 'Safely Remove Drive'. The internal card reader is 'mounted' and all you want to do is 'Eject' the media from it, not unmount the internal card reader. When you plug an external card reader into a USB slot, the reader is mounted and if it contains a card or one is inserted the card is made accessable, and I believe if you unmount the external card reader it also will not be able to access another card plugged into it until it is unplugged from the USB slot and plugged in again which would remount it. The internal card reader is hard wired so you would have to reboot to remount it, or remount it manually with a terminal command.

It failed on the first 4 attempts and worked on the 5th?
