I am having some problems with my SD card. It is a Kingston 4gb memory card I use in my camera. I've had no previous problems with using it to upload photos from my camera to my laptop, and when it's in my camera I can easily see the photos, however when I plug it into my laptop it's like it isn't even there. (I don't get "USB device not recognised")
I have tried two laptops which have Vista and both recognise my memory card reader as a "mass storage device", however it does not come up in My Computer

Please help, i've looked everywhere for an answer, so stuck!

thanks x

Hi Lophiee,

Follow these instructions and see if the problem still exists:

1-Click on Start

2-Right click on my computer

3-Click on manage then click on storage

4-Click on disk management

5-Right click on your device and select add letters and path, a window will pop up then click on Add then select an alphabet different of C and click on Ok.

Good Luck!
for some reason, the usb storage device doesnt show up in disk management?

Looks as if your pendrive is corrupted. Unfortunately, it can't be repaired.
