Didn't work for me (Asus A8Sc), caused troubles like other people :
- Disconnect the mouses (trackpad and bluetooth mouse) BUT the trackpad buttons work.
- Massively slowdown the computer.
- Doesn't read any SD card.
- Made the computer stop not to work.

This is a Ricoh standard card reader :P

Good luck !

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 and would like to know if my Card Reader will work...

My Hardware Card Reader is:

Ricoh RL5c592 Memory Stick Bus Host Adapter
Ricoh RL5c822 Bus Host Adapter
Ricoh RL5c832 IEEE1394 Controller
Ricoh RL5c843 MMC Host Controller
Ricoh RL5c852 xD-Picture Card Controller

well, I do not know what is right, but when you see the description of computer hardware appears all these above. If I download this driver that is available in the 1st post, will work my card reader normaly?

I await answers...=)

Thanks

Bye

The only way to see if it's going to be 100% functional is to install and test! Remember to repair permissions after installing the kext. Please, post your results here!

Kexthelper. You can search a little....

I've tested a verbose version of fc1, this is what i get when i insert SD card :

16/01/09 16:25:38 kernel SDHCI: BaseClock = 33MHz 
16/01/09 16:25:38 kernel SDHCI: SD Clock = 257KHz 
16/01/09 16:25:38 kernel powerSD:  0x1f021a1 
16/01/09 16:25:39 kernel SDHCI: [b]No Response from CMD8[/b] 
16/01/09 16:25:39 kernel SDHCI: BaseClock = 33MHz

Then mouse block... Any idea ? Ricoh one...

Yes it works, read the other post and what others have to say about it. I also have a Dell Inspiron 1525 and SD/SH~ SD Cards work great. You have to unmount it before you remove the card or it will crash your system. But other than that it works perfectly.

Also is there a way to keep proper revisions and info so that we know whats going on and when a new version comes out. As far as I know I have the lastest version, but then again I am not sure, cause I downloaded it from the Dell Driver Package 1.4.

You don't have the latest version because the last update of Sonotone's Dell laptops Post-Installer (V1.4.1) is dated 12/26/2008 whereas latest SD card Reader update dated 05/01/2009 (Final Candidate V1), you can check news at Sourceforge's developpement page, as mentioned on the first page of the thread...

:angel: something very strange is happening . i have HP dv2700 . the first time i installed the kext it worked perfect . but after a couple of days it stopped working . so i tried anything u can imagin. from IOPCIFamily.kext to IOUSBFamily.kext and a lot of other stuff . and different IOSDHCIBlockDevice.kext . but it did not work anymore . i tired it inside vista it works still so it's not the SD card nor the card reader.

so i gave up and i did a fresh install . and installed the driver . and it didn't work . once i insert the SD card it freezes . that's all i get and it's very strange cus the first time it worked very nice . but now it's not working anymore. i'm sure the problem is not the IOSDHCIBlockDevice.kext . it should be from somewhere else . please help anyone.
