I had this same problem, only it was for my external hard drive. In the mount point, I entered /media/usbdisk because it was mounting as /media/disk.
I got the same error message, mount_point cannot contain the following characters: newline, G_DIR_SEPARATOR (usually /)
I found the setting by going Places | Computer. From there, was able to see my drive but it gave me that error when trying to mount. Right click | Properties | Volume Tab | Removed the mount point setting.
I found that if you want to change the mount point, you only have to put what it should be named. For instance, to have my disk mounted as /media/usbdisk, I put usbdisk into the box (an not the entire path).
Hope this helps someone!
And this is what I did:
Open gconf-editor in terminal:
In the left panel:
system -> Storage -> volumes
Here you will see the mount point you specified for the device.
Change it to just a single word (OR just remove it )
Thats it. Replug your device.
sudo mkdir /media/a
sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdx1 /media/a
sudo umount /media/a
sudo umount -lf /media/CardReader
