Default Dynex DX-CRD12 Install help

Hello,
I am very new to Linux and just installed PCLinuxOS. I really like it. EVERYTHING installed and is running nicely. Except my sd card reader. We use it to pull pictures off of the camera.
I am so new to Linux that I don't know if it is recognized and just not shown in /Storage Media or I need to install it completely. The driver disk that came with it only has an .exe file. I looked at www.dynex.com and it says it will work with Linux...
Can someone point me in the right direction to get a driver?

Thank you!

I don't see the SD card reader in the list. Is it connected via USB maybe?

I guess this is your SD card reader. You should search for a Linux driver for a Alcor Micro Corp SD card reader.

OK, I searched for a while... nothing.
So I decided to call their customer support hoping they could point me in the right direction.
It seems this card reader is only for a plug and play OS. I then did some more searching and one of the threads I was reading was about an external and they solved it by unplugging and re-plugging the reader in...
So I decided to give it a shot... I already had an SD card in it, so when I unplugged and re-plugged it in.
It worked! I rebooted and it still worked!
