I am assuming I need some kernel option I did not choose, but am not sure. I have an AcomData 5-in-1 USB card reader from way back when. I am trying to use it but when plugged in it does nothing. None of the lights turn on but it is shows in lsusb as "0c0b:001c".
Code:

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 008 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 006 Device 002: ID 0c0b:001c Dura Micro, Inc. (Acomdata)
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 0a5c:5800 Broadcom Corp. BCM5880 Secure Applications Processor
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

How can I make this work in Gentoo? I have most USB options selected and the device works under Windows.

*EDIT*

Detailed info via "lsusb -v".

The_Great_Sephiroth,

Are you really sure you want to make this device work?
Code:
 bcdUSB               1.10
Thats USB 1.1 which at best is 12Mbit/sec.

If it works, you will die of old age before it does anything useful and it won't with with most current cards ever.

You need SCSI, SCSI Disk, Probe all LUNs (or only the CF slot will work).
You also need usb-storage support.

I'm always interested in making old hardware work.

We got this for a Windows 98SE PC eons ago. I need it because I just found a smartmedia card with pictures from the 90's on it. I want to get those pictures off of the card.

*UPDATE*

Where is "Probe all LUNs"? I cannot seem to find it.

The_Great_Sephiroth,

It was on the SCSI device support menu but it appears to have gone now, even if you press z to see all the hidden options.
Card readers with more that one slot appear as SCSI Devices that have several Logical Units as below.

Code:
[    9.436338] sd 10:0:0:3: Attached scsi generic sg11 type 0
[    9.436906] sd 10:0:0:0: [sdf] Attached SCSI removable disk
[    9.437646] sd 10:0:0:1: [sdh] Attached SCSI removable disk
[    9.439894] sd 10:0:0:2: [sdi] Attached SCSI removable disk
[    9.441389] sd 10:0:0:3: [sdj] Attached SCSI removable disk

That's SCSI bus 10, device 0, with LUNs 0..3 It used to be that without Scan all LUNs only LUN 0 would be detected.
My card reader works, so its clearly no longer a user configurable option.

Probably default now. It may be the reader then. After all, it was purchased in '98 or '99.
