Windows 7: SD card icon not showing correctly

SD card icon not showing correctly

Hi all.

Had a bizarre problem since installing Windows 7 that I'm hoping can be solved relatively easily.

The SD card icon in Explorer has always just shown up as a generic unknown file type icon.

I've tried rebuilding the icon caches and assigning an icon manually but neither has worked.

Apart from that everything is working spiffingly, it's just this one niggling issue that's stopping it from being perfect.

Hope someone can help.

Is there another section of this forums that anyone could suggest might be more appropriate?

Many thanks.

There isn't a better place to post, but I can't seem to find a solution for you. Another person had the same issue on Vista Business. There was no solution posted and there's nothing on the internet about it. I'd suggest that you ignore it for now.

How do you like it to look. This is how mine looks - like a disk.

File Transfer Status Bar not showing correctly
When I transfer a large amount of data, (I think it's over a gig that this happens) the file transfer window shows up, but I just get a scrolling green blob on the progress bar, instead of actually showing the progress. It's not a HUGE deal, but it's rather annoying. Is there a known fix for this?
