Windows 7: SD card not accepted as a drive by Windows 7 Media Player 12

SD card not accepted as a drive by Windows 7 Media Player 12

I have a Samsung Series 7 Slate with a 64GB microSD, and the W7 running WMP12. It wont recognize my SD card for the Music Library because it is a removable device. On my last tablet, a guy helped me build a shortcut from C drive to read the SD card. It worked well. But I dont know how he did it. The following link tries to explain it, but I can not find anything titled "Disk Management" or "Computer Management" in my Control Panel or Computer menus. Any ideas?

This is the link I found
The way to do this is to go to a known location on your hard drive—C:\ perhaps—and create a folder called Camera Card, or whatever. Then start the Computer Management program (Search the start menu for it) and click on "Disk Management" in the left-hand sidebar. Right click your removable drive and select "Change Drive Letter and Paths". Click Add and select "Mount in the following empty NTFS folder". Choose the folder you made earlier (e.g.,C:\Camera Card). Now if you look in the C:\Camera Card folder you'll see the contents of your SD card. Now, if you right click your new Library you made earlier and addC:\Camera Card to it, it'll work!

Windows Media Player and ejecting USB drive problem
Hi, I noticed this problem on all my computers using WMP. If WMP is in use, and if the USB drive is inserted, the WMP changes view into the library mode automatically. However, it will not allow the USB drive to be ejected. I have no idea why. The only way I can eject the drive safely is by...
