I have a new MSI GX620 derived laptop, with an internal SD card reader. It works fine when I first insert a card. But when I "safely remove" the card with Dolphin, and stick in a new card, nothing happens. The SD card is not mounted and does not appear in fdisk -l (though I don't know if it's supposed to). It works again when I reboot.

This is my card reader:

Sounds like a problem with automount. Do other devices automount properly? (USB keys, external hard drives, etc.) –  Kenneth Cochran Jul 28 '09 at 12:37
    
I have an USB stick which works fine –  Bart van Heukelom Jul 28 '09 at 19:45
