Short: My SD Card is only discovered if and only if I first plug in a separate USB drive first.
Long: I’m not sure if this is a KDE or Manjaro thing, but I’ll start here. I have configured KDE, via Settings > System Settings > Hardware > Removable Storage > Removable Devices, to automatically mount removable media.
- With nothing else plugged in; when I plug in a standard USB drive, the USB drive mounts as expected.
- With nothing else plugged in; when I plug in a standard SD Card, nothing happens.
- With the USB plugged in; when I plug in a standard SD Card the SD Card mounts as expected. Also the USB drive is mounted too.
- With the SD Card plugged in (note but not mounted; see second in list); when I plug in a standard USB drive the USB drive mounts as expected, but SD Card is not mounted.
Any advice as to why this is?
Note: Prior to Manjaro I was a Fedora desktop user. Fedora did not experience the same problem using KDE as the desktop as I am now. However one thing did change. Prior to replacing Fedora I upgraded from standard spinning hard drive to a SSD drive; with the standard hard drive now as a secondary disc for storage. I also doubled the memory from 8GB to 16GB. Not sure if that is related or a red herring. But I thought I should mention it. Other than that, the system is pretty stock as is the OS. I update weekly and I updated to the latest prior to posting this on the forum.
