tail -f /var/log/messages with device un plugged and while plugging in you'll see the device get picked up if it's recognized.

Bob, buy a MicroSD card that comes with the adapter to convert it to
a normal SD card and get that SD<---->USB dongle.

1. Plug the MicroSD card into its adapter.

2. Plug the SD card adapter (with MicroSD card in it) into the USB

3. Plug the dongle into your desktop computer and note which device the
SD card shows up as (probably /dev/sdb, but have a look at the output
of dmesg to be sure).

4. Download the ISO that you want.

5. As root, "dd if=name-of-iso-file.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=1M" (assuming the
SD card shows up as /dev/sdb...change as needed)

6. When dd ends, unplug the USB dongle, pull out the SD card adapter,
pull the MicroSD from the adapter, stick it in your RPi and power up the

7. Voila!

Ok, I give up, what do I do next?

I have a card reader with a GE brand name on it

[root@box10 ~]# lsusb

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 058f:6362 Alcor Micro Corp. Flash Card Reader/Writer

And I see the following for sdd  through sdg -

[root@box10 ~]# ll /dev/sdd
brw-rw----. 1 root disk 8, 48 May  1 10:10 /dev/sdd

Which I imagine relate to receptacles on the device. First I have no idea which /dev/sdx is the one the micro-SD in adapter is plugged into or how to identify it? Also I am not confident that the SD device is even being recognized?

Any help appreciated,
