Ah, yeah that feature request is from me actually.

When I was on an older stock Kernel the 8GB SD card I had worked, although sometimes it required a few attempts to get recognized. But maybe this got even more broken with later releases or your hardware is indeed slightly different.

Hmm, but maybe check the formatting of these cards. Exfat might not work out of the box.

Sorry to not be of more help for now, but I hope you can enjoy your GPDWin1 with Linux never the less.

Oh Absolutely, I've already been really enjoying it. Thanks to Ubuntu only really taking up around 5GB (compared to Windows 30+) The onboard 64GB is actually pretty good, and since there are a ton of Steam games native to Linux along with Proton & GOG having linux games. Include all the free/cheap itch.io : having a handheld x86 based machine is just amazing. I'm very happy with Linux running on this even if I never get the SD card reader working.
