Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Do you have any indications that your SD card reader is recognized and working properly in Ubuntu? Please provide the output of lsusb and lspci -nnk | grep -iEA3 "(card|mmc|sd)" run from a terminal? And please also provide the output of dmesg | tail right after you put in the SD card. Provide this info by editing your question. –  gertvdijk Feb 1 '13 at 17:35
    
what is the code for providing the "lsusb" –  shreesh Feb 1 '13 at 17:37
    
You open a command line,type lsusb and add the output to your question. –  guntbert Feb 1 '13 at 17:40

Your card reader is not supported out of the box it seems: LP Bug #971876: Realtek Card Reader RTL8411 Device 5289 (PCI 03:00.0) Driver and udisks Rule (workaround in the meantime is posted there in comment #17) –  gertvdijk Feb 1 '13 at 18:15

@shreesh Just use another editor that is available, e.g. gksudo gedit .... instead of sudo pluma .... –  gertvdijk Feb 1 '13 at 18:29
