Get CF Card Info Using USB Card Reader

Hi,

Need to get CF card identification info.

Have CF card inserted in a USB card reader connected to USB port on laptop.

Manjaro recognizes the card and auto mounts it.

However, have not found a command in terminal that works to retrieve all the card info.

I have gotten info about the card reader in terminal, but need the 64GB CF card info.

Any suggestion about command to use?

Thanks,

Mark

:+1: Welcome to Manjaro! :+1:

You mean by lsusb?

You mean parted --list? (which will give you info on all attached storage devices)

:thinking:

Please also read this:


and post some more information so we can see what’s really going on. Now we know the symptom of the disease, but we need some more probing to know where the origin lies…

An inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host would be the minimum required information… (Personally Identifiable Information like serial numbers and MAC addresses will be filtered out by the above command)

:innocent:

P.S. If you enter a bit more details in your profile, we can also see which Desktop Environment you’re using, which CPU/GPU you have, …

Thanks for your help, Fabby!

Yes, tried lsusb…and a few other commands…

It gave info about the USB card reader, but not the CF card inserted into the reader.

I need CID info about the card.

Don’t have the laptop and card reader/CF card with me now. Can try the inxi…command on Monday.

As for profile details, I have about 5 laptops with linux on them. So, gets a bit complicated to list.

The Panasonic laptop I used with the card reader has Manjaro Cinnamon on it.

Best,

Mark

Please give the output of all commands in my previous communbication on the Manjaro machine. :innocent:

  • Just mention that then: Multiple Manjaro machines.
  • If only one Manjaro machine, give the specs of that one.

What do you mean by that?

:wink:

Will do tomorrow when I have access to laptop and card reader…

OK, will add specs too…

CID = Card Identification

:slight_smile:

a quick DDG for that still doesn’t tell me anything. What are you after exactly? The serial number of the CF card?

:upside_down_face:

For example, like this:

PCMCIA_DEVICE_PROD_ID12(“TRANSCEND”, “TS64GCF800”, 0x709b1bf1, 0x84382de1),

I need the info like the last two items shown above within the parenthesis:

(0x709b1bf1, 0x84382de1)

If I had an old laptop with a PC card slot I would use these two commands:

$ cat /sys/bus/pcmcia/devices/0.0/prod_id1
$ cat /sys/bus/pcmcia/devices/0.0/prod_id2

But I no longer have laptop with PC card slot, so, can’t get info this way.

Oh wow, that’s very specific.

:scream:

Here’s info requested and from lsusb:

:thinking:

When providing code/output, please copy-paste it in-between 3 backticks ``` at the beginning and end of the code/text so that the output looks like this:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

instead of like this:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.

Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

(as that makes our life much easier so you get helped more quickly and efficiently)

It will also get rid of the “no links allowed” error.
