  • How do I check if it is?

  • I’m not sure but if I recall well can you give the output of

    sudo lspci -v

  • Does the drive show up in the Gnome Disk Utility (pacman -S gnome-disk-utility) or in the output of this command:[command:p4vwxjf0]sudo fdisk -l[/command:p4vwxjf0]

  • No it does not.

  • What’s the make and model of your laptop?

  • It’s a Lenovo G580

  • Try creating the following file and then reboot.

    [config=/etc/modules-load.d/card_reader.conf:3os7ebya]rts5139[/config:3os7ebya]

  • Still doesn’t appear.

  • Change rts5139 in file you create to rtsx_usb

    [config=/etc/modules-load.d/card_reader.conf:3od0vjca]rtsx_usb[/config:3od0vjca]
    Rts5139/5129 is gone in kernel 3.16.
    You can try if it works:
    [command:3od0vjca]sudo modprobe -v rtsx_usb[/command:3od0vjca]
    Put your card to reader and try it

  • That worked. Thank you
