How To: Mount a SD card in Linux

Just FYI and because I had to figure it, add the lines:


to /etc/modules and reboot with the SD card in the card reader.

Tada! SD card will automount. Mine gets mounted at /media/disk

sudo modprobe tifm_sd

Then insert the SD card and it’ll pick it up, no reboot required.
