4 GB SD cards properly read under Linux

Remember how MacOS X ate my pics? In that post I explained that Linux had problems with >1 GB Secure Digital cards.

Well, apparently the problem was in the card reader, not in Linux (or the card itself). I recently acquired a SD card reader on eBay (actually, one like this one), and with it I can mount and read 2 and 4 GB SD cards without problem.
