I just went through something similar and IIRC the error you report is fixed
in recent STABLE.   During my initiation, I also became aware of GEOM's
limitation when dealing with SD readers.  After inserting the card, you have
to open the device for writing for GEOM to retaste device so you can see the
slices/partitions.   Do something like:

true > /dev/da0

If a recent stable doesn't help, I'd try freebsd-scsi@ or freebsd-usb@
