    Hi and Welcome !

    How do you connect SD Card? Which type SD Card reader do you have? Execute fdisk -l command. Does it detect SD Card?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Well Done !
    If OS is not auto mounting SD Card then create a mount_point (folder) and mount it using mount command.

    Wherever you like. We usually create mount_point in /media or /mnt folders.
    You must have root privileges to create folder inside /media or /mnt folders.
    Code:
    mkdir /media/sd_card
    mount -t <file_system> /dev/<sd_card> /media/sd_card
    Check the output of fdisk -l command and replace <file_system> and <sd_card> with actual filesystem and device name of SD Card respectively.
