seen that issue before,
- it's more likely to be a hardware issue, than what the O/S is.

fixed it by using a multi port, usb type reader that plugs into a usb port.
- plug the SD card into the appropriate port.

- especially older laptops, that come with a SD card reader.

SD cards, especially those formatted for cameras are a bit screwy with Linux. If you insert the card then reboot, it will probably show up in up in your file manager. I have also had luck with this method. Just insert the card, then run these commands from terminal.

Code: Select all
sudo su -l
echo 1 > /sys/bus/pci/rescan

Now reopen your file manager and the card should show up there.
There's no Windows in my house. And it's a brighter and happier place now.

Is this a built-in card reader? Run
Code: Select all
lspci

Is it a usb reader? Run
Code: Select all
lsusb

Post output of whichever is applicable.

That second-to-last line is the culprit

Apparently there is a known bug with your reader, https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=67491
Comment 2 (near the bottom of the page) includes a workaround.

have you tried to install another kernel or follow the work around?

Run
Code: Select all
uname -r
to ID the kernel version.

That's always an option, but first see if the workaround fixes the hardware you already have.

Try the workaround. The bug affects kernel versions >3.2.0. The workaround is supposed to work for ubuntu 13.10 (which was originally released with kernel 3.11).
The only way we'll find out if it works on your system is for you to try it.

I've tried the workaround but at the fifth step is not really corrected because the path=5. Blacklist rtsx_pci in /etc/modprobe.d/rtsx_blacklist.conf doesn't exit.
I mean exists just blacklist.conf and trying to edit that one, anyway, with the command
Code: Select all
modprobe rts_bpp

rts_bpp results not found!

You can either add

Code: Select all
blacklist rtsx_pci

to blacklist.conf or create a new file (convention would be blacklist-rtsx_pci.conf) in modprobe.d
New file would be along the lines of

Code: Select all
# Problems with sd card reader using default driver.
# Stop rtsx_pci from loading by default to allow rts_bpp to be loaded instead.
blacklist rtsx_pci

This won't take effect until after you reboot.

Then I think it should be

Code: Select all
sudo modprobe rts_bpp

then

Code: Select all
lsmod

to verify it loaded
