The messages from /var/log/messages would be helpful in trying to
solve this. It sounds like a HAL problem - maybe it is having a
problem figuring out where to mount it. I ran into that a few
updates ago, and fixed it by giving all the cards and USB drives a
label, so I don't know if they broke it again.
