This is actually harder than it sounds. When Shotwell reads files
directly from a mass storage "camera" (e.g. an SD card) or any other
camera, it doesn't access the camera directly. Instead, all of its
interaction with the camera is mediated by GPhoto, a standard Linux
library for communicating with digital cameras.
So my guess is that the crash you're seeing is actually coming out of
GPhoto, not Shotwell. So let's try to confirm this, and if it is a
GPhoto problem, I'll file a bug report with the GPhoto team. You can
help us find out where the problem is by capturing a log file and
stacktrace during a Shotwell run where the program crashes due to this
SD card issue. To learn how to generate a log file and a stacktrace,
following the instructions in the "I think I found a bug in Shotwell.
How do I report it?" section of the Shotwell FAQ here
