The hardest part is finding a laptop with a proper SD-Card controller. You cannot use any USB-Cardreader - internal or external - they don't allow you to access the card in block mode, nor could they even access the location area where the CID is placed for legal reasons (USB consortium forbids this).

Most modern Laptops use a USB based controller, you need to use a laptop thats about 4-5 years old, like:

  • Dell Latitude E6410

You can tell if they have the right hardware by checking in Windows devicemanager to see if the card controller shows up connected to the USB bus or has a separate subsection for “SD-Card Controller”. In linux when you plug an SD card in, if you mount the SD Card using a prefix of sd<x> then it's a USB controller. mmcblk<n> is the right one.
