I don't think I can help you, but those who can would need some further information:
First, which Mint version are you using, on what hardware?
You mention first memory card, and then memory stick. Is this a USB stick, an SD card, or what? How is it connected, via a built-in card reader, USB adapter, or USB socket on the motherboard? Do you have alternative sockets you could try?

If you give some more to go on, maybe somebody can help. :)

Can not read the resource is like i-saw-it-arrive-but-i-did-not-see-it-leave. Pretend it's still there and use safely-remove-device, then remove the device. Not every connection survives repeated use so it might just be a bit of grubby on the card connector or a bit of wobbly on the USB.
Seeing certain death staring it in the face, it attacks frantically, because doing something has to be better than doing nothing. This is not well adapted to the type of problems computers produce.

With the card in, see if you can see it with gparted (install if needed):
$ sudo gparted
Select the card in the upper-right corner of gparted's GUI. Check it for errors.
Mint 17.1/fluxbox/pulse-less - Ubuntu 15.04/fluxbox/pulse-less
Please edit your original post title to include [SOLVED] if/when it is solved!
