I have an HP Pavilion Slimline s7700n PC that is running Vista Home Premium.
I also have just enough knowledge about computers to make me dangerous. :/
I was trying to wipe a Micro SD card using MiniTool Partition Wizard, something I had never done before. About halfway through I realized I was apparently wiping the disk drive, not the card. I cancelled right away, but now my SD card reader isn't recognized by Windows, rendering it useless. (The partition wizard sees the drive, though, although when the disk is inserted, it doesn't give the drive the letter name, which would be "G".) I went through every step of the Memory Card Reader troubleshooting article on the HP help site (for example, uninstalling and reinstalling devices, rebooting the system in various ways). Windows claims through all the diagnostics that all devices are working properly with up-to-date drivers. The USB port associated with the reader still works just fine.
The one thing I haven't tried yet is the step that asks you to remove the cover of the PC, disconnect the reader, reboot, shut down again, and re-attach the reader. I'm willing to try this if it might work. Or should I just get a new reader? I've posted the same question on the HP help forum with no answers after 2 days, so I'm turning to you folks.
All this from trying to save $25 by burning my own CM7 card for my Nook instead of buying a pre-formatted one.
Thanks in advance for any help.
