Windows 7, by default, doesn't show disconnected/empty media.

If you have a SD/Memory stick inserted into the system, and it's still not there, try a restart. Maybe a driver failed to initialize when you booted up.

You could also try reconnecting the media, if it's already inserted.

Your right...I found what I did wrong. I had Hidden Files and Folders showing, then I changed it and forgot that I did that. So, if you elect to show hidden files and folders your icons always show in My Computer. Thanks for the help!
