What are using the card for? If it is for a camera or other device, you should format it in the device.
What size is the SD card? Is your SD card reader capable of reading a card that size? (I have two older SD card readers that only read cards up to 2 GB and when I put a 4 GB card in that reader, it fails.)
If you are ONLY using the SD card on the Mac, try to Partition the SD card - after verifying that the reader you are using can handle it.
... and by the way, your tag line shows OSX 10.5.2
If that is correct, you should download and install the 10.5.5 COMBO updater from http://support.apple.com/downloads/MacOS_X_10_5_5_ComboUpdate
Run Disk Utility Repair Permissions once before and again after you run the 10.5.5 COMBO system update.
Hope that helps.
The three SD cards I use are as follows.
Kodak 512 MB
upgrading to 10.5.5 didn't do much of anything.
The Canon one started to work for some reason but it's too small on memory for me to use for everything I need to be using. I think as you said SanDisk might just be too big. But Kodak is most likely corrupted. That's just what I think is the deal, not 100% sure on it though. Does that give you any idea as to why it doesn't work?
Canon 16M ... upgrading to 10.5.5 didn't do much of anything ... The Canon one started to work for some reason
Are you sure that the 10.5.5 Combo installer didn't "fix" the 16 mb card?
SanDisk 4GB ... I think as you said SanDisk might just be too big.
Verify that your card reader can handle 4GB. Most likely, that is the problem.
