which seems to verify that it knows about the device. "usbview" also confirms that there's a "Multi-Card Reader". so far, so good.

now, as a test, look around, rip the SD card out of my sharp zaurus,
drop it in, the little green light on the reader comes on, good, and
... ok, what device do i mount?  since /udev/sda is the block device
of the two listed above, i try that but get "No medium found."

i'd try this with my CF card, but i don't have it handy.  anyone else
have one of these and know the incantation?  thanks.

I'd try /dev/sda1

i tried all of /dev/sda[1-4], and got "No medium found." given that /var/log/messages refers to a "scsi removable disk sda," that certainly looks like your best, first guess, doesn't it?


still puzzled ...
