    PC not reading USB SD Card Readers

    I need some help. Recently my computer won't show any files on SD cards I try to read with USB card readers. I have two different USB card readers and neither will work for me. I have also tried to access more than one SD card to make sure it isn't a faulty card, but none work.

    When I plug a card reader into a USB, Computer shows the drive as "Removable disk (E". Then when I double click the drive to view my files on the SD cards (which are jpg image files), I get the message "Please insert a disk into removable disk E:".

    I can view the images on these SD cards in my cameras and also on my photo picture frame.

    What can I do to use these cards and card readers with my computer? Does anyone know what is wrong? Thanks!

    Hi Pappy, are you clicking the correct drive, as when SD cards are inserted they tend not to show too clearly. Also check the light is illuminated in the usb port the card is in.

    Good ideas, thanks, but it is the correct drive I'm accessing and the card reader is lit too. Any other ideas?

    Crisis over. Don't know exactly what happened but I can now read the files on my SD cards. I ran a virus scan and fixed a couple of problems and I'm back in business. Thanks anyway. Glad to know so many helpful folks out there. 'til next time...
