On an ASUS BU201 Ultrabook Ubuntu doesn't seem to recognize SD card reader. I've tried this solution but nothing will be mounted when I insert my SD card. On another Windows machine the card reads fine, so it can be assumed the card has no errors.

ls /dev/ | grep sd of this answer gives me

sda 
sda1 
sda2 
sda3 
sda6
sda7

lspci gives me (with inserted card):

which relates to this question, but the answer didn't help me either.

Any help is appreciated.

Edit:

sudo lsblk with card (128GB) in reader gives

    I had this problem myself, and solved it buy getting a USB SD card reader. – Charles Green Jun 11 '19 at 17:13

I have MSI GE63VR 7RF and Kubuntu 18.04. I just wanted to share my solution.

You have 3 chances to solve sd card problem First Method : (my problem solution) fix kernel modules to load your driver at boot time.

sudo nano /etc/modules

add below line end of the file

tifm_sd

save and exit

reboot

sudo reboot now

solved !

#Second Method :

Reset and rework sdcard modules on kernel

sudo modprobe -r r852

sudo modprobe -r sdhci_pci

sudo modprobe r852

sudo modprobe sdhci_pci

#Third Method :

Reinstall Udisk packages !

sudo apt-get install --reinstall udisks2

##reboot your system

  sudo reboot now
