usb 7 in 1 card reader -- not working



This may be a case of operator error, but... 

I just received my "Syntax IC Card Reader - 7-in-1 external Card Reader"


when I plug the reader into a USB port, it shows via dmesg; 

hub.c: new USB device 00:10.2-1, assigned address 4 
WARNING: USB Mass Storage data integrity not assured 
USB Mass Storage device found at 4 

and tail /var/log/messages shows; 
Apr 7 13:40:15 riverside kernel: hub.c: new USB device 00:10.2-1,
assigned address 4 Apr 7 13:40:19 riverside usb.agent[16088]: kernel
driver usb-storage already loaded 

I insert my sda memory card, but not shows in dmesg or /var/log/messages


doing a "cat /proc/scsi/scsi" show;

my 2 cdrom/cd-writer, and the card reader.. 

Now, I'm "assuming" that the memory card will be sda/sda1, but nothings
shows up telling for sure. 

If I attempt to run fsck or fdisk on /dev/sda I get the following error
message(s); 

sudo fdisk /dev/sda1 
Unable to open /dev/sda1 

fsck 1.35 (28-Feb-2004) 
e2fsck 1.35 (28-Feb-2004) 
fsck.ext2: Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read
while trying to open /dev/sda Could this be a zero-length partition? 


Now I have no idea what else to try. 

This is for the memory chip on my Microtek S1 camera, recently reviewed
on MozillaQuest 

Thanks
