Well, you are better to chown it to your user than run as root... once
you start running stuff and creating files as root it kind of leaks out
everywhere until you have to do everything as root.

No some larger cards break us right now, can you let me know your exact
card type and I will do a little shopping spree today to reproduce this.
~ I think someone else mentioned Sandisk 8GB is going to make the same
