What kind of SD card - please post what it says on the card (and maybe your camera's specs).
My first thought would be: have you tried a USB card reader? That is what I use - it is easy to plug in and saves the camera's batteries.
It's just a little 2G SD card. It goes in a Sony Cibershot I bought like 2 years ago. I can't find any of the cables for the camera so I'm just trying to rip my pictures straight from the SD card.

I didn't know Sony uses SD cards. I was so focused on answering your question re. a card reader that I had not looked at your profile. If you are using a 2010 iMac, it should have a card reader right next to the CD slot. If that is what you have - did you try that? Or, there are FW 800 > FW 400 cables which you could use for the current card reader.
Yes, it does have an SD card reader under the optical drive. That's what my problem is ... It won't read my SD cards.
A lot of Sony cameras use SD cards. It's just a normal little camera. Nothing professional or complex.

I had posted another reply, but suddenly the site said "we'll be right back"......
In any case, I just tried to check the specs for the 2010 iMacs to get some insight into the SD card slot, but couldn't find anything. I was wondering if your card is compatible with the Mac slot.
So, if yours won't read the card, you can either get USB reader, use a firewire 800 > 400 cable, or - and I would recomment that - take advantage of your warranty and either call Apple or make an appointment at your nearest Genius Bar. I am assuming you are still covered by the warranty if you have a 2010.

I thought of one more troubleshooting step to try - have you ever reset your PRAM? It won' hurt to do it and may solve the problem; here are the instructions:
