I can find nothing in My Computer after connecting the SD card, but I found that the SD card shows as an unknown device under Disk Management. However, I cannot access the SD card. When I right click the SD card under Disk Management, Windows pops up a message to say there is no disk in drive, insert a disk in drive and try again.
