Have WinXP Media Edition on Dell Inspiron XPS 410. I bought a 4gb SDHC card to transfer photos from computer to put into digital frame. Inserted card and nothing happens. Looked under control panel and saw all drive letters but nothing showing for the drive I had the card in.
Later after reading Dell Support checked drives for updates. I downloaded All Recommended updates for computer through Dell. Now I don't have any drives except CD/DVD. I know very little about computers so am left to read forums and support sites for help-Have found nothing in reference to my problems. Any advise, suggestions of problems or fixes??
That's exactly what I did to get the photos onto the digital frame. But....Still doesn't answer the problem of the drives not showing up in "My Computer" anymore or why the computer doesn't even recognize that I have any cards in the slots. The CD/DVD-RW drives seem to be the only thing that shows in "My Computer" and recognize and work.
Go to your start menu and select the run command (or hold down your windows key and press ®. Next type diskmgmt.msc and see if your drives are listed. Under the disk number it should show basic, the total drive space, and Online.
