Hi Kimmo,

thanks for sending a reply. I had a look at 
and changed it from

mount -t vfat ...
mount -t auto ...

It works as usual with vfat formated mmc's ;-)
However, ext2 formated mmc's are still not accepted. Manual mount works (see 
mail below)

So, if you have more ideas on this subject - let us know!

Regards Krischan

You might try editing the command line in /usr/sbin/mmc-mount file. It
currently assumes that the memory card is VFAT-formatted.
