Re: Plz help: Card reader in 12.10 not mounting SD card - Thinkpad Ricoh
Be careful when removing the cards with the GUI tools. I've had to reboot my machine because I have an internal SD card reader and clicked "Safely Remove" to unmount my SD card. What that actually does is "Safely Remove" the whole card reader, and not just the SD card, so they won't appear at all even after removing and re-inserting the cards until you reboot. So make sure you're selecting the "Eject" option to unmount your cards.
