very likely this is a permissions problem. install the commandline gphoto2 
program and then run the following from terminal, both as a normal user 
and as root:

$ gphoto2 --list-files

if it works as root, then you need to set the permissions correctly:

to use a card reader you will need to add it as a USB Mass storage camera 
(there is an faq here:
