    SD Card Not Being Recognised With Internal Card Reader

    I have the very latest Windows 8.1 update.

    My internal multi card reader has been working fine for just under a year but just recently it has stopped recognising SD cards. When I insert a card it normally opens an explorer window but now it does nothing and does not show in file explorer.

    Though if I click on .. file explorer/manage/disk management .. it then opens an explorer window for the card.

    I have the setting in autoplay - memory card and removable drive set to open explorer.

    I don't think the card reader is becoming faulty, anybody with any ideas

    The only issue I've had with card readers and SD cards has been the 2GB limit of older SD cards versus 4GB and above with newer SDHC cards, had to get a newer card reader.

TV card usually not recognised until reboot
Hi all Got a Compro S350 satellite TV card and have Windows Media centre. I boot my PC, start media centre, go onto live TV and it tells me no TV signal/device is found. I simply reboot and it works fine. Not that hard to get around but annoying all the same. Any ideas?

SD card reader
I just bought an HP P7-1414 with Wins 8. When I insert my SD card, the window that should popup to ask to what you want to do with the memory card doesn't popup. I can see it in "Computer" and can access it there but I don't have the choice of what to do. How do I get the popup to work?
