My micro sd isn't appearing like it's supposed to

I have very recently downloaded fedora.So if my research is correct it comes running nautilus. Earlier today on the file manager that is shipped with fedora I had downloaded a game to download on this sd card. the file manager told me that i had to erase something so I did what it said with gnome disks that is also preinstalled successfully. my micro sd card appears in gnome disks but, not it won’t appear on the native file manager now. If there’s anyway you can help it will be greatly appreciated.

if it shows on disks you need to mount it to enable on filesystem. More details would be helpfull, what did you erased

i’mnot able to find the mount button. i erased earlier successfully a random distro iso just to prove to myself that the micro sd works and it does. Just about ten minutes ago I was able to get another usb stick to be acknowledged by the system but,not again. I believe it’s a bug. what should i do? Something I forgot to add earlier is every single time my sd card goes into the usb drive it makes a sound. it just doesn’t appear on the file manager.

The sound probably means the system is recognizing it.
Please run ls /dev before connecting the device then repeat after connecting it and look for differences.

On my system the usb connected card reader shows the device as one of the sata devices. /dev/sde and partitions similarly as /dev/sde1.

Note that the sd card should only be plugged into the usb card reader device before the usb device is plugged into the computer. Similarly it should only be unplugged after being disconnected from the computer. It has been my experience that the sd card cannot always handle the sudden power changes of connecting and disconnecting, but the usb card reader device is designed for that purpose and protects the card from the surges.

I am not sure I understand what you are doing with the sd card.
If your system is x86_64 architecture then you would normally download the iso install image and write it to a usb flash drive to be able to boot and install.

If your system where you would intend to use fedora is arm based then you would download the aarch64 image and use arm-image-installer to write the raw image to the sd card.

What exactly are you attempting with the image and the sd card? What is your hardware you installed fedora on?

I usually run dmesg before I plug in a device to find the last line.
Then plug in the device and run dmesg again to see what new logs the kernel puts out.

If all is good you will see the dev name and its partitions showing up.
In the bad case you will see error messages.

I also use lsblk -f to see what going on with disks.
