Can anyone confirm that dbus and/or hald have anything to do with this? (I thought those were specific to X...) When attaching a USB device to a USB port, the kernel will notice the device has been added and will do the proper enumeration. For example, when adding a USB hard disk or a USB pen drive, a umass device will be found, then a daX device should be created (which is what you use to access the disk; USB storage devices appear as SCSI disks). But in the case of a USB device that's already attached to the bus, e.g. one of those 7-in-1 card readers, I cannot see how adding a SD/MMC card would cause the hard disk to suddenly show up. You would need to run "camcontrol rescan 0", to cause the device to be re-scanned for any media which was inserted. -- | Jeremy Chadwick jdc at parodius.com | | Parodius Networking http://www.parodius.com/ | | UNIX Systems Administrator Mountain View, CA, USA | | Making life hard for others since 1977.
