Question Howto mount a simple memory card ( NOT flash )

Hello:

This is probably an stupid question, but ...

I'm trying to access to a 512 Kb memory card from an Leica surveying instrument ( TC1100, an advanced total station ).

When inserting the card, heard two beeps ( frist low tone, second high tone ), and cardinfo reports an anonymous memory card. In /dev/ I can find the ./mem0b0b, mem0c0c and rest of previsible devices, but when I try to mount "mount -t msdos /dev/mem0b0b /mnt/Leica , I got a invalid filesystem error. ( Of course, I supose that the card has such a valid filesystem ).

┐maybe I should open the card as a ramdisk or so ?

Thanks in advance,

Francisco Escarpa.

None Maybe this isn't a DOS filesystem??

Your mount command looks ok to me.

You're just taking it on faith that the card has an MSDOS filesystem?
