Problem Description:
I'm trying tifm in a new vaio VGN-FZ19VN, and this 
still happen in kernel 2.6.23-0.rc6, i insert two cards
one Stick and one SD and device nodes are not created.
(Firewire device is not recognized either but thats another
issue...)

Comment 1 Pablo Yaggi 2007-09-15 16:02:50 UTC
Sorry i reallize /dev/mmcblk??? are being created, but not inmediatly, after a while whence i introduced the card /dev/mmcblk0 show up, then after some time /dev/mmcblk0p1 did, and after a while /dev/mmcblk0p2 did, and so on to p3.
I think thats because i have 3 partitions in my card, but when i try to do fdisk /dev/mmcblk0 i get this:

Unable to read /dev/mmcblk0

and

dmesg |tail -10
mmcblk0: error 1 transferring data
end_request: I/O error, dev mmcblk0, sector 0
Buffer I/O error on device mmcblk0, logical block 0
end_request: I/O error, dev mmcblk0, sector 8
Buffer I/O error on device mmcblk0, logical block 1
end_request: I/O error, dev mmcblk0, sector 16
Buffer I/O error on device mmcblk0, logical block 2
end_request: I/O error, dev mmcblk0, sector 24
mmcblk0: error 1 transferring data
end_request: I/O error, dev mmcblk0, sector 0

Inserting a 128Mb MemoryStick (non pro) creates no device nodes at
all.
Comment 2 Pablo Yaggi 2007-09-22 08:59:28 UTC
I tried a 1G Memory Stick Pro and it didn't work either
Comment 3 Patrick 2007-12-24 20:13:18 UTC
Same problem on a lenovo X61 with the kernel version 2.6.24-2-generic (Ubuntu). With a 8Gb SDHC card.
Comment 4 Patrick 2007-12-24 20:38:21 UTC
It's working now even after mounting/umounting the SD card several time also after I reboot. I will try to reproduce the problem and post more details.
Comment 5 Natalie Protasevich 2008-02-11 20:17:25 UTC
Patric, any update on this problem please. Is this still working for you now?
Comment 6 Kjartan Maraas 2008-12-03 12:58:44 UTC
I've filed a similar bug about device nodes not being created for fedora earlier this year and still see it with their latest kernel which is 2.6.28-rc6+. Here's the link:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=441218

Description of problem:

My SD Card reader doesn't work other than printing a line in the log every time
I insert/remove a card:

Apr  7 09:58:58 localhost kernel: tifm0 : demand removing card from socket 0:1
Apr  7 09:58:59 localhost kernel: tifm_core: MMC/SD card detected in socket 0:1

So it looks like /dev/mmcblk0p1 or an equivalent should be created when the card
is inserted?
