Second sd card reader!!
Ok, Im a little bit pissed right now, this should not be so difficult! A month ago I bought a pny usb hub/card reader and can only use it as a hub, the card reader does not show up in windows....recently I bought an iogear 12-1 card reader/writer and am trying to format a couple of different micro sd cards and can do nothing with them because windows does not recognize the reader! Well it does show up in device manager, but not in explorer and I can not add/delete files...what gives?

Remove all other external storage devices, plug-in only one card reader and check the following.
SOLUTION 1 - Verify the reader's status under Device Manager.
STEP 1 - Connect the reader to the PC
NOTE: It is recommended that you plug your card reader to the back USB port on your PC to ensure that there is enough power from the USB port for the card reader to be detected properly.
STEP 2 - Check under Device Manager
1. Right-click My Computer.
2. Select Manage.
3. On the left pane, click Device Manager.
NOTE: The card reader will appear in two places: Disk Drives and Universal Serial Bus controls as USB Mass Storage. If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) next to the device, try to refresh the drivers.
STEP 3 - Refresh the drivers
1. Right-click the entry with the error mark, select Uninstall.
2. On the top menu, click Action, and then click Scan for hardware changes.
STEP 4 - Verify if the reader is detected
1. Double-click My Computer.
2. Look for the card reader under Devices with removable storage.
SOLUTION 2 - Try other USB ports.
A yellow exclamation point (!) under Device Manager usually means that the device is not receiving enough power. If the reader is not receiving ample amount of power from the USB port, it may not function properly.
SOLUTION 3 -Get into Disk Management and change the drive letters.
