Found it 

It is mount –t vfat /dev/mmcblk0p1

Thanks for your help I was on the wrong track looking for SCSI device but by
removing and inserting the card I found the dev that was changing mmcblk0.

Hi

Looks like its detected.

If its a multiple card reader, there will be a device for each slot.
A 4 card reader will have these devices in /dev - sda, sdb, sdc, sdd
When a card is inserted, you should see a partition created 
    check  ls -al /dev/sd*

Depending on the system, some auto mount, some will show the icon, which you
right click to mount and unmount.
As for the mount point directory, it will probably be /media/DeviceName
(ie.  /media/CameraName)

Check dmesg to see if it detected and assigned the devices.
Look for sd devices.

Also, if you run into permissions issues, check the group the devices belong
to.
In Slackware 12, its plugdev.   Just add your id to the group plugdev and
restart the messagebus.


Hope it helps
Rich

Now I can’t find the built-in card reader. I have an Acer Aspire 5610Z and
in (Shudder) Vista the reader shows as an 

 

“Storage Controller”

I ass_u_me I need a SCSI driver but being a newbie I’m not sure where to
look.
