    Do you have a card reader installed? Can you post a screen shot of what you're talking about?

    Try right clicking on the drive and selecting eject--even though there is no drive connected. Second, reinsert the drive, and try the same thing. Finally, do a restart--or do this step first if you want.

    Got it. We were posting at the same time. Did you try the possibly simple fixes I mentioned above. Probably too simple to work.
