SD Card and USB Stick not recognised as removable

Seen a few posts on 'net about storage devices not being recognised as removable when saving password to them. I'm getting the same on Mint 18.3 Cinnamon 64, 4.13.0-32-generic - Thinkpad T420 - tried with 'normal' usb stick and SDHC card in the onboard card reader

path to SD card doesnt have anything fancy in it:
/media/john/key
mtab for SD Card looks OK:
/dev/mmcblk0p1 /media/john/key fuseblk rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,default_permissions,allow_other,blksize=4096 0 0

any way to get the card to be recognised as removable?

Cheers

Just tried same SD Card in Lenovo X201 and it worked, so looks like something specific to the hardware in T420.

Any ideas where to look further..?
