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: Compatibility_List.txt

And maybe others with this device:

 

The driver is available in the development page.

Another development: http://forum.voodooprojects.org/index.php/board,14.0.html

 

Thanks.

Here is the original driver:

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)

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]

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.

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.

IoReg see everything I believe. Its a little different then yours but it show up. I think my problem is I have a SanDisk Memory Stick Pro (MagicGate) so its not seeing that. I need to go find my regular SD Cards I suppose.

Try changing the device IDs in Info.plist file to match the one you have.

There are two plist files in this kext.

 

1. IOSDHCIBlockDevice.kext\IOSDHCIBlockDevice.kext\Contents\Resources

 

and

 

2. IOSDHCIBlockDevice.kext\IOSDHCIBlockDevice.kext\Contents

 

Change the string in :

 

<key>IOPCIMatch</key>

<string>0x08221180</string>

 

to the device id you have.

 

 

The default value in the kext is for Ricoh i guess.

0a:09.1 SD Host controller [0805]: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C822 SD/SDIO/MMC/MS/MSPro Host Adapter [1180:0822] (rev 22)

 

 

I am not sure but try using:

 

<key>IOPCIMatch</key>

<string>0x803c104c</string>
