This problem occur often in windows 7 when you insert card ready or other storage (USB) in your computer.
In this post i will describe:

1. Overview : some information regarding the problems
2. Solution: To overcome the problem

Normally this happen when you insert CARD READER or Other storage (2ndary storage) and your computer failed to detect it. This normally happen in Windows 7 and may occur in other Operating system. Regardless of 32 bit and 64 bit the solution is still the same if you having the problems which i describe above.

So to see if the storage detected or not we open disk management to check the devices. for those who don't know how to open device manager, click start and type in DISKMGMT.MSC

After that the disk management windows will open and you can see your storage appear but when you right click you can't format, change driver letter or path or even select properties:

Here is the error you will get when you try to format or select properties.

2. Solution

1. Open device manager by click start andtype DEVMGMT.MSC

2. A device manager windows will open, click VIEW and click at the SHOW HIDDEN DEVICES.

5. Then right click again on any place there, select scan for hardware change.
6. The a new hardware Wizard will appear, follow the on screen instruction.

Your PC will detect the card reader after the installation finish.
