I would think this is a bug, rather than a usability hoop through
which you have to jump.

Perhaps look here:

If you can find a reported bug which involves hardware similar to
your's, then you can help to fix it - even by simply confirming that
the bug exists.

AFAIK, card readers are well supported by the linux kernel, and so
your reader most probably works using another distro or even another
version of Ubuntu.  I am not aware of any card readers that simply are
not supported by the linux kernel (with the exception of this case,
where I think linux has the ability to support it, but a bug is
getting in the way).

Either way, when you plug in your card (regardless of whether the
reader was plugged into the computer first or not) the file manager
should pop open and show you your files on the drive.
