Thanks again for all your help though.
try theog's method if that dont work then we're all stumped ,just out of curiosity are you using the same usb port every time you try?
I'm using the SD Slot, of which there is only one.

I've just tried the other method and still no luck! I really appreciate all your help.

It is set to unlock. I've just found another SD card which I have literally just put into my laptop - it still doesn't let me alter anything on the card, so it's definitely something to do with the card reader and not my card. So annoying lol!

Tonight once I put my son to bed, I might restore to 'factory settings' and see if I get any joy. Although, I'm pretty sure it's been the same since I first upgraded to windows 7. Oh, I don't know. What would you suggest?

Go to pebbly driver link, reinstall the drivers, first.

If you go for the Factory recovery.
BACKUP,BACKUP,BACKUP,BACKUP,BACKUP,BACKUP first.

i would use that as a last resort , if everything else runs fine i would just reinstall the reader driver or invest a couple of quids in a usb/sd adaptor i use one myself for my sd cards

So, since nothing's worked, I've decided to buy a usb card reader. I didn't realise how cheap they were lol!

Thanks everyone.
