Description (last modified by Nigel)

I'm running with mythbuntu plus deb packages available at http://www.avenard.org/media/Ubuntu_Repository/Ubuntu_Repository.html

I have on my box a card reader which supports several memory stick types.

I've I enable "use new media" in the frontend configuration, I get errors on starting the frontend "Failed to mount device: /dev/sde" ... but I don't have any media inserted.

It looks like myth belives the card reader has media present when it hasn't.

On stdout I see :-

Can you please try to reproduce this issue with unmodified Myth packages?

OK. Other users have had similar problems: http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/dev/293227?search_string=system%20flash%20drive%20and%20mythgallery;#293227 so I guess further debugging is needed. 1) Can you please provide mythfrontend -v media output. 2) What does udevinfo -q all -rp /block/sdb thru sde reveal? 3) What about udevinfo -q all -rp /block/sdb/sdb1 4) What version of hotplug/udev. 5)Does this card reader ever mount drives properly on MythBuntu?? 6) In that situation, what are the mountpoints, what does the mounting, et c.

Peter included a log 5 months ago, but it was hard to read. I have included it as a text file with anonymised dates (in case anyone wants to diff with their -v media log).
It seems that CheckMountable() and FindPartitions() need to exclude some askect of this device, or the udev config, on this system. Without the actual hardware to test with, or a lot of patience on an owner's part, I just can't work out what is happening.
