Windows 7 64-bit is not recognizing a 4GB SDHC card. I can see the drive in Device Manager and it is assigned a drive letter (E:). However the E: drive is not visible in Windows Explorer, nor can I browse to it from a Command Prompt.

Any ideas how to make Windows 7 detect SDHC cards?

Can you format it in disk manager? –  MrStatic Jan 3 '10 at 3:41
    
is your card encrypted with password? –  Dennis Cheung Jan 3 '10 at 6:48
    
The card is not encrypted. I can see it in the device manager but cannot perform any operations other than assign a different drive letter. –  Rams Jan 3 '10 at 12:37
    
Have you tried it on any other PCs? What are you using to read the card? –  Connor W Jan 4 '10 at 0:11

Looks like my Alienware card reader cannot read SDHC cards. I returned the card and got a 2gb SD card which, the laptop is happy to read. Thanks everyone. Did try on another winxp laptop. Same issue. –  Rams Jan 4 '10 at 2:49
