In my experience, because:

A) The card reader doesn't send a signal that a card's been inserted (mine 
doesn't...in fact, it didn't even mount when I popped the cord out and 
back in...and I set "auto" on from "noauto", just to test).

B) Even with CDs, which often automount when the drive drawer closes, you 
can't "auto-unmount" because once a disc is and mounted, the drive is 
locked, so that the eject button doesn't even work.

I'm fairly sure putting the card in and running the command is the only 
way to go.
