My SD card won't mount when I put it into my lap top, everything was fine before the upgrade.

The information about the SD card appears just fine when I type sudo fdisk l it just says that it doesn't have a valid partition table.

When I type sudo blkid I get the following answer:

/dev/sda1: UUID="CCA8-9030" TYPE="vfat" 
/dev/sda2: UUID="8a1d135b-384b-432d-b608-64dcf09ada24" TYPE="ext2" 
/dev/sda3: UUID="7s6PtU-kj2Z-N8XD-0mzl-840i-i3HG-enlbAf" TYPE="LVM2_member" 
/dev/sr0: LABEL="Bamboo CD" TYPE="iso9660" 
/dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-root: UUID="c9b521c8-7c9f-493b-95c8-a7d79c465318" TYPE="ext4" 
/dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-swap_1: UUID="7f155ab6-e1b9-485b-a2bc-443c0622284d" TYPE="swap"

When I use lsusb:

Bus 003 Device 002: ID 046d:c52f Logitech, Inc. Unifying Receiver

I've read the other threads and I couldn't really find any good answers, my card reader was compatible with the previous version of Ubuntu, so technically it should still be compatible with the next version.

Also I can't erase what's on the card, it contains important data which I need.

If you need anymore information just ask, I'll give it as soon as I can.

I had the same problem after upgrading to 13.10. I unplugged my card reader then plugged it back in and it was detected.
