I'm trying to open my SD memorycard, but it doesn't show up when plugged in. Though it is detected when I look at the USB-devices

lsusb

and then I get:

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0ac8:c33e Z-Star Microelectronics Corp. 
Bus 002 Device 010: ID 058f:6335 Alcor Micro Corp. SD/MMC Card Reader
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 008 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

How do I open this now? Or how do I make it show up next time I insert the card?

Are you asking on how to access your files from the terminal? As in, mounting the volume on the SD card and browse into the folders/files on it? –  gertvdijk May 22 '13 at 15:08
    
Yes exactly this, I need to put some files on it –  Xavier Hofman May 22 '13 at 15:09
    
You should be able to use sudo fdisk -l to find out where your SD card is. Then you can use its file name to mount it as a device. sudo mkdir /mountLocation;sudo mount /dev/whatever /mountLocation. Is that what you're looking for? –  Vreality May 22 '13 at 15:27
    
The thing is, when i use fdisk, it doesn't list it. –  Xavier Hofman May 22 '13 at 17:25
