I have been using Mint 17.1 for several months and do not think the problem is associated with the operating system as it has and still is working fine. Hopefully this is the appropiate forum for this question.
Yesterday I was inserting my ScanDisk card into the Mass Storage Device (Multicard Reader) on my mint desktop and my chair rolled on me which caused me to quickly insert card (Beep) remove card (Beep) and insert card (No Beep). After this the card which normally appears as 16GB volume in file manager was not displayed. I also usually get a dialog what do you want to do as I have it set to ask what you want to do etc. I tried the SD card in my laptop and it works as usual. My USB stick still works but I'm thinking thats a different system from the multicard reader. I think I killed the multicard reader. Fortunately I had a saved output from

I searched the forum for similar incidents and found some SD card issues under much different circumstances and even tried the fix's without luck.
Is there someway to restart this process (I'm assuming it is a process – I'm still pretty green with Linux)?
Can you destroy a built in system multi card reader this easily?
This is not critical as I only use this card reader for my camera card and I can still use the USB cable. However, I am wondering what happened, why, and what can I do to fix it.
