    Morning I just woke up...Is the SD card unlocked? The little tiny white switch on the side. Sometimes when I don't pay attention that happens to me any I wonder why I can't access it.

    Yup, card is definitely unlocked. Tried it on my Mom's computer and the card works just fine.

    Have you tried that card reader on another PC?

    Yea, tried it in my Mom's PC. That time it seemed to also show the SD card along with the adapter but still couldn't access anything.

    My guess is its an issue with the card reader, either its defective or it needs drivers to work. You have plugged the SD card in without that reader to verify it works?

    Yes, verified that it's not the card. Oh well, any suggestions for a working one?

    Depends on what type of cards you use. I only use SD and Micro SD. I already have the Micro SD to SD card adapter.

    Mine does that sometimes, but it is because it is old, sometimes just jiggling the SD card works.
