I have an HP hdx9494 (Dragon).  I am running 32 bit F8 with all the
applied updates.

/sbin/lspci:

My system mounts, reads and writes SD cards correctly, at least those
that are formatted FAT32.  I haven't tried other types.  It does this in
KDE.  I haven't tried gnome.

The thing about Live CDs is that they don't use the latest available
kernels.  They usually use the kernel that was available at the time the
distro shipped. A newer kernel may help your situation, or it may not.  

Good luck.
