Its seems that all of you are using the new 2011 MacBook Pro's.
As per my knowledge the new MBP's boot up n 64 Bit Mode.
Has any one tried the same using the 32Bit Mode.
One can boot up in the 32 Mode by pressing the "3" and "2" key at startup.
Can you please try this out and let us know if the problem persists.

I'm actually a little relieved to hear that I'm not alone.
I have a six-year-old camera that won't use high capacity cards, but I have a 2 GB Sandisk card which my card slot is having trouble reading. It took three or four insertions (and a little bit of cussing) for it to finally mount.
The fact that this is a common problem likely means that a fix is coming. I was afraid it was a problem with the card slot in my new MacBook Pro.
HAS ANYONE (DEVELOPER) TRIED TO READ THE SANDISK EXTREME CARDS WITH A MACBOOK PRO 2011 RUNNING OSX LION (beta) ???
Maybe the problem has been fixed.
I don't know anyone who is in the OS X developer program... so I don't know anyone who could test it... but hopefully OS X Lion will resolve the issue for us.
I recent upgraded my MBP from the 2006 15inch model to the latest 2011 15inch higher end series unibody, and I'm experiencing weird problems with the SD Card reader.
I use a Sandisk SDHC Extreme Class 10 SD Card and have problems getting it to read through the inbuild SD card reader.
I tried the following:
Reformatting on Disk Utility
Reformatting on my Canon 450D
Repairing Disk Permissions
All of these did not solve my problem. I have a card reader which when plugged into the MBP, works fine and detects the card.
The Weird Part
I plugged the card into a friend's iMac and it detects it every time. And then right after I do that, I plug it into my MBP, and it detects the card, but the problem is once I eject it, and slot it back in, it fails to detect again! However if I try this method again (Slot to iMac, remove, slot back to MBP), it will fail the second time.
Now when I take the card and put it into the camera, and take a photo, then slot it back into the SD slot, it detects the card once more, repeat the steps again, and without fail, the card is undetectable again, unless I do something like erase an image off the sd card using the camera, the MBP will then detect the card again upon putting it back in.
Does anyone here have this same odd experience or do I own a possessed MBP/SD Card?
I just upgraded to OS X 10.6.8 and the problem appears to be fixed... I was able to read 2 different SanDisk 16GB 30mb/s cards twice...
I still don't get it... I am still convinced that it's a software issue... and, as I said (above), the OS upgrade does fix the issue for me - and it appears to be true for others... yet some, like Bernard, are still experiencing the problem. C'mon, Apple, come clean about this one... please? (and yeah, I realize that they don't actively monitor these forums - they should.)
