" ... If it doesn't, the Mac is having trouble recognizing the card. Make sure your mac finder is set to show drives (Finder>preferences>Sidebar>Devices....click appropriate boxes). ..."
These are merely the view options for the Finder; they have no bearing on whether the Mac can or cannot mount the drive. They are there to customize your desktop and don't change any underlying operations of OSX whatsoever.
Even if the view settings are not set as above, you will always find every mounted drive or device at [Finder] Go: Computer
You can cleanly unmount any device there by, in the Finder, selecting it's icon; Command-Click (also Right-Click) and selecting "Eject" from the drop-down menu (and there are a number of other methods to select and unmount a removable drive as well).

So i was having this issue to for the longest time...and then removed and re-inserted the SD card. next i checked to make sure mass storage support was on and then tried syncing again...all i know is it worked this time around.
sometime just removing the SD card and re-inserting works

I did exactly as you said and it worked like a charm! Thanks so much for the assistance. All of the music I selected from Itunes downloaded but it wouldn't play.......The phone showed it was on loud but it wouldn't ring either. I took out the battery.....essentially rebooting the phone and all is back to normal. Agai, thanks for the assistance!

At long last. The solution has been discovered!! I had tried everything under the sun and checked my mass storage settings 100 times. I knew that it had something to do with the BB as I had placed my memory card in another BB and connected it to my Mac with the same cable and it worked right away. Prior to finding this fix I had went to the length of "wiping" my BB to see if that would reset something to make it work - which it didn't
I tried the above fix using Windows 7 in VMFusion but the calfix.exe seemed to have an issue communicating with the BB and it never installed properly. I ended up installing Desktop Manager 6.0 on another computer running Win XP and then running the fix. The patch installed right away and the BB rebooted after several seconds.
Before running the patch, the media card wasn't recognized under Desktop Manager on the Windows computer either. As the tech bulletin indicates, the BB's mass storage capability is not properly configured even though the Options -> Memory settings appear to be fine.
I'm glad you persisted in finding the fix.
