how to access memory card in ubuntu??

I am sure this is a stupid question, but ....

Have downloaded ubuntu (because my linux lite died). Very pleased so far with ubuntu, but I can't figure out how to access files or photos from a memory card. Just can't seem to go to anything that even shows its existence. Any help would be appreciated. I'm a linux novice so an 'idiots guide' would be most useful. Thanks.

Is this a USB reader, or something internal? Nothing at all happens when the card is inserted? Are there any lights on the reader that indicate it is reading the card?

If it auto mounted, which it should have in Ubuntu, just pull up Nautilus file browser.

can you post the contents of
sudo cat /var/log/messages
while you insert the card.
