I'm using Lubuntu 11.10 on a VAIO notebook. Here is my uname output:

Linux vaio 3.0.0-16-generic-pae #28-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jan 27 19:24:01 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I don't know why but today my SD card is not working. When I plug it nothing happens.

I tried some hints from here but nothing. I don't have any sdf on /dev folder.

Here is the output of lspci:

Where did my card go?

ps: here is my unity utilities window, suggesting me to try sdb

Can you see data on the disk from another machine? If not, your card might be corrupt. More information will pop up on /var/log/dmesg (look at the last 30 lines or so just after you insert the card.) –  Stephan Feb 14 '13 at 20:48
    
I can use it on my sony camera. –  Sigur Feb 14 '13 at 20:49

The card got renamed from sdf to sdb. There could be a multitude of reasons. Does it work as you expect? How do you mount it?

I can not mount it. The last time I just inserted and a window appears. But today, nothing happens. –  Sigur Feb 14 '13 at 20:39
    
I'd suggest a reboot in that case. If that doesn't solve the issue, what does ls /dev/sd* say? –  schaiba Feb 14 '13 at 20:48
    
/dev/sda /dev/sda1 /dev/sda2 /dev/sdb /dev/sdc –  Sigur Feb 14 '13 at 20:52

You can find out what mount point it is currently using, now, by typing 'mount' in a terminal. Keep in mind, that mount point may change as you use other removable storage devices. –  Stephan Feb 14 '13 at 21:03

This is most likely a dynamic mount done by a daemon in your system. Thus it would not appear in the /etc/fstab. –  mdpc Feb 14 '13 at 22:04
