Just thought I'd show this hint I stumbled across showing how to make your card reader show in System Profiler for 10.6.5, which subsequently gives cards new icons, instead of the generic white ones.

Code:
Built in SD Card Reader:

  Vendor ID:	0x0bda
  Product ID:	0x0181
  Revision:	1.00
  Serial Number:	xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


For the reader to be recognised like this you need to install and modify AppleUSBCardReader.kext and install a new AppleStorageDrivers.kext.

do you have a card ready tonymacx86? maybe this can be put in a guide somewhere or on the wiki? so people who havent seen this with card readers can make their hacks even more Mac like.
