Oh you absolutely innocent person. Laugh | :laugh:

Yeah you'd think that would work, wouldn't you. So did I.

But Microsoft has not fully implemented block device support in WSL, so it doesn't work for flash drives and SD readers.

It's certainly possible if you're willing to shim your SD card over iSCSI and TCP/IP.

As nightmarish as that sounds, it's not terrible once it's set up.

The trick is getting it set up. Read it and weep:
