After you insert the card type
Code:
dmesg|tail
in a terminal.

dmesg will help you find out how Linux is seeing the card. More about dmesg here.

When you find it in the output of dmesg or dmesg | tail, the easiest way is to then enter it as root in your fstab and mount it using the mount command.

Here's what I experienced in mounting a USB drive. The drive was different, but the procedure is the same.

You can also use:

Code:
blkid
It is the one with the VFAT filesystem, I doubt anything else uses this, unless you have more than one.

For my money I always do a
Code:
su
fdisk -l
for Debian/Ubuntu distros replace "su" with "sudo su".

This will display all the disks and their partitions.

From the size of the disk I can find out if it is a USB device and its device names directly from the kernel.

A device, if has a vaild filing system, say it is sdc1 can be mounted manually by commands
Code:
mkdir /mnt/sdc1
mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/sdc1
ls /mnt/sdc1
The last command list the contents of sdc1. By such time the folder /mnt/sdc1 of the device will be displayable in the GUI to do drag and drop.
