Something has recently happened where I am unable to reliably view card contents. I noticed this when I tried to read the MicroSD card in my Samsung Cell phone. The card shows up as "removable disk" but when I click on it in I get a window saying "Please insert a disk into removable disk (F
I do everything correctly with the phone including setting to debugging mode and turning on the USB storage. If I do exactly the same with my backup computer, all works as expected and I see the contents of the card in the phone. It's isolated to this computer.
I have a Rosewill USB 3.0 card reader for various card sizes and I discovered it no longer works as it used to in this computer but it works fine in the other computer. The only way I can get a card to be read with it in this machine is to insert the disk into the reader and then plug the reader into the computer. when I do this I see the used/free amount on the card and all looks fine. If I withdraw the card and re-insert it I get the error message above saying to insert a disk into it.
When I put a card in I see the icon for the data blacken at the end. If I remove the card or turn off mass storage on the phone the end becomes gray like the rest of the icon.
The phone is new and my inability to access the data on the microSD was I thought, related to the phone not being compatible with the OS but when I tried the Rosewell Card reader which used to work beautifully and now find it not functioning as expected, again I have to look to the OS.
Any idea what I can do to get the card reader functionality back? Although I can use the other computer, it's the files on this computer I need to get access to & transfer.
