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.

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 18 Mate/fluxbox/pulse-less - Xubuntu 16.04/fluxbox/pulse-less
