Does anyone know if there's a way to get the Microtech USB CameraMate
compact flash card reader to work under Linux?
I've searched all over the place but haven't found anything.
Specifically, I'm not sure if this is a generic type of thing that
should work on a plug and play basis (since it's similar to other USB
card readers which apparently do), or if it needs a special driver. If
it's supposed to work plug-and-play, as far as I can tell, it doesn't.
If it needs a special driver, either it doesn't exist or I need help
Since the instructions I've found are a shade obscure, I'd like to have
an idea as to whether it would work at all before I plunge ahead.
I have kernel 2.2.14, and would like to know if upgrading to 2.4 would
solve the problem. If this is generic, it probably would - but I have
no idea whether it is or not. My current distribution is Mandrake 7.0.
If buying and installing a different (upgraded) distribution would solve
this one, I'm open to that as well; I look forward to the time-consuming
task of upgrading my kernel with some trepidation.
Any help would be warmly appreciated.
