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 :huh:

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.
