I'm sorry to have caused offense, Andries - I realise I'm a newcomer,
and I should not have been so presumptuous.

You are using the Compact Flash reader part of the device, right? I
don't think it is working with SmartMedia. I've tried the latest
kernel 2.4.5-pre1, which incorporates your patch to allow the device
to be recognised. The Dane-Elec / SCM eUSB adapter can be seen in
/proc/bus/usb/devices, but I cannot mount a SmartMedia card (which I'm
assuming I should be able to mount on /dev/sda; mind you,
/proc/scsi/scsi shows it only as a Compact Flash device, and doesn't
mention SmartMedia...)

This part looks good:

castor kernel: Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...

... this bit doesn't look good ...

I've also tried another hack I found in a news posting, advising that
CONFIG_USB_STORAGE_SDDR09 support should be added to the Config.in for
/usr/src/linux/drivers/usb and enabled; it hasn't helped.

The card will not mount as either vfat or msdos format (I note from
your earlier posting you mounted as msdos)

Aside from the card reader, my Fuji FinePix 4700 is recognised
perfectly by the USB / SCSI subsystems (although I can only ever mount
it write-protected, for some reason...); I can read the same
SmartMedia card in Linux via the camera, but not with the card reader,
so I know the partition table is sound.

Is this a discussion I should take to the usb-devel mailing list?
