I was taking / editing a bunch of photos. I would take a bunch of shots then transfer them from the SD card to the PC, then put the card back in the camera to delete all of the files. After a couple of times of doing that the SD card is not registering when I push it in the port. I put the card back in the camera, just to make sure it wasn't fried somehow, & it's fine. I tried another card & it didn't work either.
This PC did not come with a port for a CF card (for my old camera) so I have one of the card reader hook-ups - I put the SD card in this reader & it's fine.

I restarted the PC & the SD port is still dead.

Any ideas?

Your post is somewhat confusing.

You put the SD card in a usb card reader. The card reader worked fine at first but now it doesn't?

1) Are you expecting the pictures to come up automatically when you insert the card?

2) Did you check under "Devices and Drives" to see if the external usb card reader was showing up as a drive?

3) What Operating System are you using?

4) Are you using the same SD card(s) and did you try a different USB port?

Thanks,
Ralph

1) a window has always popped up when I insert a card into either the port on the PC itself or the card reader. Even if it didn't (as my old PC had a tendency to do) I could find the drive looking in "This PC"
2) the external reader works...as stated in the original post, it is the port on the PC itself that does not respond
3) Windows 10
4) I tried 2 different cards on both (the port on the PC & the card reader)

The port on the PC had been working fine, just minutes (20-30) before.
Then nothing.
Tried 2nd card
Nothing
Restart PC
Nothing.
Tried the card reader...
Both cards work fine in the card reader
Neither card registers in the PC port

In Windows 7, and hopefully the same for Win 10, right click My Computer > select Manage > under System Tools select Device Manager. Expand each of the listed items and report back if you see a yellow exclamation mark next to any item. Especially check down near the bottom in the area called Universal Serial Bus controllers.

Thank you John...but no, there aren't any alerts there.


also, I'm sorry I neglected to mention a "Thank you" to Ralph as well.
