:( 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.




i fixed it by flashing bios to older version . the newer Hp pavillion 2700 bios version had support for SD card . so that was changing it's behavior. now it's working fine actually perfect. thanks.

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...


Just wanted to point out that the FC1 is dated 1/5/2009 not 5/1/2009.

It does work with M1530s. Try the one that is linked in my Guide.

Attached is a current SVN build. I didn't change anything including the vendor/device IDs in the Info.plist. I have not tested it because I don't have an SD card with me at the moment.

Sorry, in France we write dates like that : day/month/year, anyway it is not a kext from the future...

The driver works fine with my Dell Inspiron 1525. No workarounds needed.

Is it possible that stormcracker is using different versions of kexts on which this driver depends like IOPCIFamily.kext that may be causing diffrent results on the same hardware ?

Beta 1 with the device ids updated so basically nothing.

Attached is an SVN release build with device ids updated. Haven't tested this one.


This one worked with sleep for X60s. Thanks a lot.

Somehow this one didn't work at all in the same system.

It is the IOPCIFamily.kext that needs to be replaced. If you need it feel free to drop me a PM.

does not work on:
09:04.3 System peripheral [0880]: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C843 MMC Host Controller [1180:0843] (rev 11)
09:04.4 System peripheral [0880]: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C592 Memory Stick Bus Host Adapter [1180:0592] (rev 11)

this is on a vaio tz90s, where the sd seems to be tied with the MMC Host controller (under windows atleast)

tried to change the deviceid to that, results in KP/frozen screen

I'm the developer who originally got this working on the Mini 9. It's not a matter of enabling the other card types, it's a matter of writing a driver to support their card protocols. Frankly, this isn't a priority for me at all. I'd be more than happy to answer questions for someone who wants to develop this (you can port it from Linux). However, skill in kernel development (preferably drivers) would be required.

While I'd be willing to attempt it at some point (I want to finish my network driver first) I am not sure even Linux supports the full array of cards these readers support. Last time I ran Linux on my laptop only MMC/SD cards worked. Has this situation changed?
