Surfstick with SDCard

Postby hirdel » 19 Mar 2014 06:50

... want to give a hint

when having a surfstick with a sdcard and surfstick is doing well
but you get no success to the sdcard - just install the package "pmount"
... thats works for me


surfstick huawei e173 has a simcard and a micro-sdcard 4gb included.
the mobil connection with simcard works pretty good, but almost always the datacard 4 gb is not been recognized.
After i ve installed the package "pmount" it was solved until next reboot .. so i removed it.
Have found a very complicated workaround in german ubuntuforum ... modeswitch
but i ve not given it a try ... to lazy.

Someone knows a more simply way to solve this - get both recognisation of surfstick and datacard ?

I guess that might mean something to someone who has a Surfstick, but it's a bit cryptic for anyone else.

Could I persuade you to provide a bit more detail of the problem you encountered, the path you used to arrive at a solution, and some sort of comment about what the solution is. Shouldn't take much more than a couple or three sentences but that added detail would greatly improve the usefulness of your information. :)

It seems to be alright with both modes together (surfmodem and datastorage) when entering these surfstick before booting.
3 times in a row it worked well. Let me see if this is the solution. I will post after looking at that issue for more than a couple of days.
