Default sdhc card on eeepc701 running gentoo

You are correct, the internal card reader was the problem, I tried today in a Dell Vostro running ubuntu, and everything worked nice, even tried in another Dell laptop with windows, and the card was recognized as well. It seems the problem is indeed my hardware, so I'm buying a usb card reader to shove it inside the eeepc to finally gain 16GB that I'm needing to do some more interesting stuff in it.

I would guess *the internal reader don't work properly for such modern cards.

Especially for the 701 there exist some reports about similar problems.

You may try on another (external) sd-card-reader which is specified for class 10 *cards.
