    are you mounting the card ? did you try to restart the phone? did you try to manually remove the card and reinsert it and try again.
    If this does not work try the following
    settings>applications>development>check debugging mode>plug in the device> let it recognize your phone> unplug shut off debugging mode, and try to mount the card again.

    You are very welcome,,,, Debugging mode, i believe allows the computer to connect to the phones operating system, when you turn it on and plug it in i think it installs the drivers it needs on its own, like plug and play. once the computer recognizes the phone a developer can use something called android debugging bridge. and they basically can write directly to the phone.

    if i am wrong or incomplete someone please help elaborate.

    could have just pulled the sd card, and put it in a card reader, then in the computer, the computer would show it as another drive, then go to the DCIM folder.

    I didn't really understand the OP's post... the words were so... what?!

    Anyway, DroidXcon... debugging mode is only for running the adb. If the OP was trying to pull some stuff off of his phone, he could connect it to the computer and change the settings to Disk Drive, this allows the computer to recognize the phone when it's plugged into the USB port.

    The debugger allows you to, as you said, run the adb and start a shell to do things on the phone through the computer.

    I had this happen to me last week. I don't have an option to connect as disk drive if the SD card is not recognized. I had to remove the SD card and use a reader to recover my pics...

    Unrooted Evo. Only 3 connection types were listed while SD card was not recognized; Charge Only, HTC sync and USB Tethering. I replaced the SD card with a newer one. everything works fine again.
