SD Cards kind of wonky

Maybe there's something I don't get about the new system for removable
drives. Things have definitely changed, now that there are eject icons
alongside the drives that get mounted and all.
The thing is, it seems like whenever I insert an SD card, it's always
read only. I've double checked and rechecked to make sure the little
"lock" switch on the card is set to be unlocked.
But, whenever I put in an SD card, I can't write or edit any files.
The weird thing is, though, that I left a 2 GB SD card in the slot of my
USB reader over night, and this morning when I checked it, I was able to
write and remove files.
Did it just need time?
Is there something I'm not getting about how SD cards are not mounted?
In Hardy, I just inserted the disk and it was ready to go. Is there
something more to it now in Intrepid?
Enquiring minds want to know...
Any advice would be much appreciated.
