    I have seen this behavior for some removable devices. If it was not detector on startup, just pop it out and put in back in and it should work. Before you pull it out, the device notifier in the icon tray has an eject button. You need to use this eject function before removing the sdcard. This makes sure any write buffer is flushed and it should then see a new sdcard as you plug it in. Perhaps not being detected on a reboot is a hassell, but the rest just takes a little extra effort to make it work. And, if you were going to leave the same sdcard plugged in all of the time, one could use the YaST Partitioner to add to your fstab file, but I doubt you really want to do that. I think by default it will be mounted in /media/disk_label_name. Make sure the sddisk has a name to use.

    Thank You,

    It was very strange, I booted today without sdcard, but when I have inserted it, it works, I removed it, and place again: it works fine. I rebooted, it again work as I described in first post.
