    Computer not recognizing my camera card


    I'm trying to do a firmware update on my Nikon camera. The instructions from the Nikon site are for Vista and Windows XP only, so that's not helping. When I insert the camera card into the slot, nothing happens. The drive doesn't show up in my explorer window either. I've transferred photos this way before with no problems, so I don't know what has changed. Help?

    hello ,hard to know what happing with the card ,but I would think the instruction for vista wouldn't be much different that win8 .
    plug in the card and go to device manager and see if any red x or yellow ! show for your card reader
