    If I'm not mistaken, I seem to remember being able to see all my SD card drives under My PC even if there was no media in them. I need to know what drive letters are assigned to each one and I can't seem to remember what I did to hide them. Anyone know where the unhide them setting is ? Thanks

    Try this: Press [Winkey][R], type in diskmgmt.msc and press [Enter]. Down in the bottom pane you should see available "Removable X:" with "No Media" listed. You should also see them listed if you press [Winkey][E]. They'll be under something like "Devices with Removable Storage".

    I see the drives, but it's not showing any assigned drive letters next to them. Maybe windows assigns a drive letter when the card is inserted. I thought I recalled the drives were assigned and showing in My PC, but maybe not.

    For example, an empty SD adapter is showing up as drive "E:" here.

    I have the same, except I don't have the drive letter showing, which is most likely why they're not showing in This PC. I may have to try inserting a card when I get home and see if I can assign them a letter, if Windows will even read the card without an assigned letter. untitled.JPG

    I tried that and it made no difference. I just tried an SD card and it showed up and I can access and use it. I guess as long as it works, I'll just be happy with the SD drive not showing in This PC as long as it shows when I insert it and I can use it.
