Unable to access F:\ drive - refers to a location that is unavailable

Hello, when I put my SD card into my laptop I am unable to access the F drive as it says it refers to a location that is unavailalble. I have no idea why or how this happened. I added a screenshot of what I mean.

Please take a screenshot of your fully-expanded disk management lay out and upload it to WSF.

It may be something simple that can be cured by remapping your drives - it sounds as though the drive in question is missing a drive letter.

Hi vinkamon , re-install the ricoh card reader software Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States] this is most likely the problem you have

Hi vinkamon , just download the file from the link I posted , suggest you save it to the desktop, It will be a self extracting executable file , All that is needed then is to double click on the .exe file and it will install itself

It says select the folder where you want to unzip files too? What does that mean?
