I have tried a couple of things that you have suggested in your two emails.
1) Started computer (card reader not attached)
2) Ran dmesg
3) Connected card reader to USB (with card already inserted into reader)
4) Waited for 10 seconds
5) Ran dmesg again
The only difference I can see between the output of 2) and 5) (which was at the end of the printout) is as follows:-

1) Restarted computer (card reader not attached)
2) Connected card reader to USB (with card already inserted into reader)
3) Opened the Computer File Browser in the Places menu
4) Found two relevant icons
b) Generic STORAGE DEVICE
5) Double clicked on 'smartcard' and got following message
Unable to mount the selected volume
mount special device /dev/smartcard1 does not exist
6) Double clicked on 'Generic STORAGE DEVICE' and got the following message
Unable to mount media
There is probably no media in the drive
7) Right clicked on the 'smartcard' icon. Tried the 'Mount Volume' option, but got message as in 5) above.
8) Right clicked on the 'Generic STORAGE DEVICE' icon. Tried the 'Mount Volume' option, but got message as in 6) above.
I have put the following in my fstab file...
/dev/smartcard1 /mnt/smartcard vfat user,noauto 0 0
...and I have created the following directory...
Also, the card reader has four reader/writer slots (does this explain sda to sdd in the above printout?).
Hoping the above clearly shows what I'm doing wrong.
Thanks for your previous emails. Much appreciated.

Does an entry for the card appear in the Places menu? If so you can
define an action for it to take in the system->preferences->removable
drives and media capplet. (From your description you probably want to
select the mount and browse options)

Ubuntu uses UUIDs instead of /dev/sdb1 etc, so I *think* that this
should work fine anyway.
Hope that helps,
