Hello. The screenshot you attached shows the device name of the card reader ... it seems to be reachable under /dev/hde. But it doesn't say whether the inserted card is partitioned or not ... to check the partitioning of the inserted card use the fdisk -l /dev/hde command from the root account.

Currently the DeLi(cate) Volume Manager supports Floppy drives and CD-ROM drives only, but I can add support for the SD reader and USB pen drives in the future versions. However, you can still mount the SD card manually with the mount command. Just create a mountpoint (for example /mnt/sdcard) and mount the partition with the mount command (both need to be done from the root account)...

Example:
mkdir /mnt/sdcard
mount /dev/hde1 /mnt/sdcard


Note:
You can additionally change permissions with the chmod command to allow read-write access to the mountpoint for regular users ...

Note2:
Don't forget to umount the SD card before removing ... umount /mnt/sdcard

"mount /dev/hde1 /mnt/sdcard" works well.
