http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm running 12.04.2, and I've got an Alcor Micro Corp. Flash Card Reader/Writer (usb ID 058f:6362). Occasionally, I'll have a flash card fail, or get messed up, and the card will go "read only".

All cards will come up with the same drive name (ie. /dev/sdg), so when one card messes up it ruins it for everyone after, until I reboot and start over again. Things I've tried... Mounting, unmounting, remounting, all while trying to specify &quo (Hardware)
