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.



Hi,

Won't a bsd port be much easier as compared to a linux one ?
Apple has recently announced that they will have SD card support in their upcoming mac book pros,does anyone know what bus PCI or USB will they be using ?

hi there - can you tell me how you did that? i have the 5920g and cant get the SD working...

i have a fairly good know how ability - but not sure what you meant by modify string...?

thanks in advance


He means the device id for the card.You can find it in the Info.plist file inside the kext.

I'd like to know that too. Hopefully we get some additional support :(

hi all,
it doesn't work for me! i have an HP DV5 1030el and an internal card reader (Jmicron i think). I installed the kext in the first page with kexthelper but after the reboot i wasn't able to use the card reader. Nevertheless, in the upper panel 4 unrecognized pci devices appears available, but without a driver.
these are the translated specs:

vendor id: 0x197b
device id: 0x2381 (from 0x2381 to 0x2384)
vendor subsystem: 0x197b (always the same)
device susbsytem: 0x2381 (from 0x2381 to 0x2384)
link width: x1
link speed: 2.5 Gt/s

have I to modify the kext? what have i to do?
thanks,

Nihil

Another update:

http://www.mydellmin...11-release.html
in spanish:
http://www.midellmin...c-en-el-mini-9/

Changes:

- retry on I/O timeout (prev. releases became irressponsible)
- detect card removals during operation
- lower CPU utilization (the driver is now interrupt-driven)

Download:

http://www.midellmin...m9-20090211.zip (0x2381197b Vendor & Dev id)
http://www.insanelym...p...st&id=51464 (0x08221180 Vendor & Dev id)


Wow!
Now thats called an update.
Will test shortly an update.Hope i do not get I/O kit timeouts this time.

For those,who tested this and/or earlier versions of the kext,does it have sleep support or one has to mount it again manually after system wake up.

It's not working for me :)

I am using the lspci shows this information.
05:05.1 SD Host controller [0805]: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C822 SD/SDIO/MMC/MS/MSPro Host Adapter [1180:0822] (rev 19)
05:05.2 System peripheral [0880]: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C843 MMC Host Controller [1180:0843] (rev 01)
05:05.3 System peripheral [0880]: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C592 Memory Stick Bus Host Adapter [1180:0592] (rev 0a)
05:05.4 System peripheral [0880]: Ricoh Co Ltd xD-Picture Card Controller [1180:0852] (rev 05)

I have used the 0x08221180 rc1 version of the driver and during boot it hangs on I/O kit timeout I have tried using the vanilla IOPCIFamily.kext and IOPCCardFamily.kext and Chun-Nan's pached versions both of which hang during boot.

Anyone got any suggestions for me?

I can't get this to work on my Vostro 1400 running 10.5.4. Here is the hardware information:

03:01.1 SD Host controller [0805]: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C822 SD/SDIO/MMC/MS/MSPro Host Adapter [1180:0822] (rev 22)
03:01.2 System peripheral [0880]: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C843 MMC Host Controller [1180:0843] (rev 12)
03:01.3 System peripheral [0880]: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C592 Memory Stick Bus Host Adapter [1180:0592] (rev 12)
03:01.4 System peripheral [0880]: Ricoh Co Ltd xD-Picture Card Controller [1180:0852] (rev 12)

This seems to be exactly the same as everyone elses that does work. I have tried and re-tried all of the kexts, read this thread several times, re-done my disk permissions tried a variety of sd cards and it just doesn't seem to work. Anyone got any advice?

The Original post with the text file listing needs to be updated to the latest versions that are working, and the Dell e1505/Dell 6400 and Dell e1405, along with the Dell 9400, need to be added to compatibility, since most if not all (some Latitude models, and Vostro) use the Rioch controller, and therefore are compatible with this.

Thanks!

After some scary reboots, hard restarts and endless spinning wheels....that appears to have worked. Thanks for taking the time. Much appreciated.

Does this work with the acer aspire one A150?
thanks. :)

Does SD card support come with certain installers or does it need to be added from the kexts here?

NO, this is a driver for the Internal Card Reader that is connected on the PCI Bus, the MacBook has it Card Reader connected to the USB Bus.
