Windows 7: Computer doesn't see videos on SD card, but Canon Vixia camera does?

Computer doesn't see videos on SD card, but Canon Vixia camera does?

So I have a Canon Vixia & a 128gb Lexar Pro 633x 95 mb/s SDXC memory card for about 6 months now and everything worked perfect.

Record to the SD then transfer via special transfer cable to my computer.

The computer would always see & also "import video & pictures" automatically to my computer. I could also view the files by manually working through the drive files.

Now when I try the cable, import video & pics doesn't see any new videos or files at all. And when I manually go in and check, there is nothing in any files. And there's probably 100gb on there by now.

I can however see the files on a little chrome book I have when I plug just the card in and also still view them on the camera itself.

It just seems to be my computer all of a sudden.

I am running Win7 Pro 64

Any ideas on how to fix this problem? I do video for my computer so this is a major complication.

I also do not have a card reader installed on my computer. While I plan to have on in the near future, I don't have one now and need access to the files ASAP. And I also just want windows to work like it's supposed to.

Sorry this thread was out of wack, it is all back in order now.

I'm still having trouble with this. I don't know what it is. I see the files every where else but through windows when it's plugged into the camera.

Could there be an update I should do that could fix this?
