I am trying to mount a Kodak A250 50 in 1 Memory Card Reader/Writer in Ubuntu 12.04 and am having a bit of trouble.

When I plug it in a USB port with a 256 MG FAT 16 card in it appears on my desktop but it isn't mounted (I'm unable to access it). Output below from my system.

--lsb_release -a output:
