SD card reader works but no "removal of hardware" sound or icon

I have an Asus CM1630 desktop running windows 7, 64 bit. SD card reader works, after adding drive letter, but there is no hardware removal or insertion tone and the is no icon to safely remove the SD card. The SD card works fine when placed in an USB adapter and plugged into the USB port - there is both the tone and the safe to remove... icon present.

For a while I could not get the Drive it(SD card reader) was in to show up. So I labeled it as Drive G: which was the original labeling and it shows up as a removable storage device. Any solutions out there?

If you were to use the safely remove hardware function on the card reader, it would uninstall the reader itself.

Right click on the Card drive letter in Explorer (My Computer) and select eject.
