Thanks, that is exactly what happened. I plugged the reader into a USB 
port, with a card already in place, and a dialog appeared asking me what 
I wanted to do with the data. I chose to open in a new window. I had to 
go through a couple of folders and there were all the photos from the 
card on screen. So I could then copy them to the hard disk with no 
problem. Great, thanks kubuntu.
