Ubuntu Karmic Koala 9.10 Where’s my SD Card?

I’ve had one heck of a hard time getting the SD card to mount on my Ubuntu Karmic Dell Precision 90 laptop.  Not a thing.  Searched through the forums and found a solution that worked for me.  Now the SD Card mounts on my Dell Laptop just fine.  Just takes a quick command-line call and a cut-and-paste into “gedit”.  Once the edit is made, close and reboot, and the SD card problem with your Ubuntu Karmic Koala is gone!

First, at a command line, do:

sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/options

Then, in gedit, cut and paste:

options sdhci debug_quirks=1
ProblemType: Bug
Architecture: i386
DistroRelease: Ubuntu 9.04
Package: linux-image-2.6.28-6-generic 2.6.28-6.17
ProcCmdLine: User Name=UUID=e309fb14-05db-4e9a-b137-c6bf63eeb6a4 ro quiet splash elevator=noop
ProcEnviron:
SHELL=/bin/bash
LANG=it_IT.UTF-8
ProcVersionSignature: Ubuntu 2.6.28-6.17-generic
SourcePackage: linux

Save the file, then reboot.

Your SD Card should show up.
