Now I have a problem that the SD card (inserted in to SD slot) is not
getting seen from fdisk. A USB stick can be seen though. Note that the
card is detected and works properly when accessed from WIndows Vista.
I also saw the correct drive J appears in /cygdrive.

Yeah, I've seen this before. Some drivers for built-in SD-card readers use *special* drivers that somehow avoid having the raw device visible in the normal way. The way I got around it was to use an external, USB-based card reader. IIRC, the raw disk device doesn't even show up in the disk manager application (under the XP Administrative Tools control panel program), which means this is probably not a cygwin bug.
