Thanks for the debugging info. /dev/hda/* are the partitions of your card
reader, and indeed they have the wrong permissions:

  brw-rw----  1 root   disk      3,   1 2005-09-08 07:21 /dev/hda1
  brw-r--r--  1 root   root      3,  10 2005-09-08 07:18 /dev/hda10

It seems that there is only actually one partition (hda1) and the device nodes
for the other ones were just gratuituosly created for some reason (but that does
not worry us, at least not for this bug).

Since this is a real IDE device, we cannot use the USB/Firewire bus test, but
really have to rely to the kernel here. Can you please check the output of

  cat /sys/block/hda/removable

? I strongly suspect it to be "0" (otherwise the device should have been in
group "floppy"), but let's see. Please also give me the output of

  ls -l /sys/block/hda
