This driver is intended to be used on any machine running Mac OS X with a PCI based JMicron SD Card reader such as the Dell Mini 9 or the Acer Aspire One.

It may also be extended to work with other SDHCI compliant hosts.

For compatibility check this file: Attached File  Compatibility_List.txt   371bytes   5907 downloads
And maybe others with this device:

The driver is available in the development page.

Another development: http://forum.voodoop...board,14.0.html

Thanks.

Works ? No

Or this is not possible because Apple laptops no have internal cardreaders ?

Thanks.

Yes, Apple has only USB cardreader. For PCI no any drivers. - edited: now yes!

This driver works fine for me:

http://forum.insanel...t...st&id=38976

Here is the original driver:

http://sourceforge.n...jects/osxsdhci/

This driver is in alpha development phase but i only changed the Vendor and device ID and works fine.



Hi quinielascom,
my specs for the same are:

07:05.1 SD Host controller [0805]: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C822 SD/SDIO/MMC/MS/MSPro Host Adapter [1180:0822] (rev 19)
07:05.2 System peripheral [0880]: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C843 MMC Host Controller [1180:0843] (rev 0a)
07:05.3 System peripheral [0880]: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C592 Memory Stick Bus Host Adapter [1180:0592] (rev 05)
07:05.4 System peripheral [0880]: Ricoh Co Ltd xD-Picture Card Controller [1180:0852] (rev ff)



Do you think i should give it a try....

I have tested the kext and works fine. I can confirm that it only read SD cards, but its an amazing start because it is stilll in development. I have got beta 2. My SD controller id follows :

SD Host controller [0805]: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C822 SD/SDIO/MMC/MS/MSPro Host Adapter [1180:0822]

Didn't work for me. If I'll get the sources (it is OpenSource or no?) then I'll try to improve it.

Is this going to be the page for this project or can we expect a new posting so that we can become beta testers

Congrads Onzarob. I hope that Slice will be able to make it functional for everyone. Glad quinielascom found the drivers and started up this cause it is hope for everyone that has build in card readers.

Thanks quinielascom for correcting me. I changed the value but it seems doesn't work either. What should I do to check if it is detected by Leopard? The kext is loaded but I can't find it in System Profiler.

Regards,
Ha Le-Viet.

using pci express card reader,

works, think it goes over the usb , so compatible,
does not stick out, also need to disable usb boot in bios,
otherwise, it will try to boot from SD ,...
works with SDHC .

hardware hack,... otherwise, to use a usb reader, and hardwire it to an existing usb port,
most usefull , for a netbook, without an express card slot.

This is interesting. I was planning on porting sdhci after I finished with my current project (I know, it's taking awhile, I'm very busy...). Anyway, the FreeBSD driver is just as functional as the Linux one (meaning SD and MMC card support). Here's the source:

J0hn Demented, what are your Vendor & Device ID ? some people (including me) got working the card reader with only change this value in two places into kext; first the under Content Info.plist and other Info.plist under Content/Resources folder. I not sure if edit the Content/Resources/Info.plist is necessary but i changed the ID also when i installed this kext.

Regards.
