Monitoring a USB-drive / Card-reader using python?

I want to monitor a given USB-device, like a Memory Card-reader, and
when a memory card is inserted I want to move the data on the card to a
different location on the filesystem ( or do something else with the
files).

Does anybody know how to do this ( on Linux and/or windows ) or if it's
even do-able ?
