Ricoh PCIe SDXC/MMC Host Controller does not detect SD cards

Hi,

My Lenovo Thinkpad X230 has an integrated 4-in-1 SD card reader (SD/SDHC/SDXCMMC), but it does not detect any card I insert. The two cards I have are working correctly under my sister's MacBook. My kernel version is 3.6.10. Here's the output of a few commands :

lspci -k

lsmod | grep sd

mmc_core               82791  2 sdhci,sdhci_pci

Nothing new happens if I type dmesg | tail after inserting a card.

I didn't find any solution after searching on Google, but it seems there are a few other people experiencing the same problem as me. I haven't actively tried anything yet.

I don't have much experience when it gets to this kind of things, so I hope there are some of you who can help me.

Thank you!

In case someone else has the same problem, there's actually a package in the AUR that fixes the problem : https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ricoh-e823-fix/
Install it and enables it with systemd and it should work correctly!

infoslaw, please don't necrobump.

Make a new topic about your issue and link back to this one if you think it's still relevant.

Closing.
