    My wife's macbook pro is not mounting any SD card or USB memory stick automatically.

    Every time she needs to start Disk Utility and from there she sees the storage and with a secondary click she can issue a mount command which works as it should.

    Any ideas on how to fix this ?

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks will give it a try.
    Sorry for the newb question: this is her work machine so could not cope with downtime. Does resetting the NVRAM entail risks of the machine not restarting ?

    I've learned to never say never but the likelihood of it not restarting is miniscule.

    An NVRAM reset aside, I sincerely hope that you are backing-up. At some point, someday a computer you rely on won't work. You need to have a plan B.
