The Libelium MicroSD module uses resistors for level shifters and many SD cards won't work with it.

The problem is that resistor level shifters do not provide fast enough rise times for the SPI signals and cards that use edge detectors often fail with this module.

Throw the Libellium module in the trash and buy one of these products:

http://www.adafruit.com/products/254

http://www.gravitech.us/micaad.html

http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9802

There are many other products but make sure what you buy has IC level shifters, not resistors.
