How to mount xd picture card?


I’ve got an Olympus 256MB xD picture card that I would like to have mounted on my SuSE. In windows, a few seconds after putting it into the slot on my Toshiba laptop, it is mounted as a drive. In my OpenSuSE 11.3 (KDE 4.4.4), nothing happens. Is there some software that I can get or some setting I have to tweak in order for it to be mounted?


You can manually mount it by first identifying it.

fdisk -l 

That will show all your disks. Then you can mount it by using the following…

mount /dev/devicename (replace with your device name) /mountlocation

You can create a directory and mount this anywhere you want. A common place is in media. For example /media/XD/.
