My laptop does not realize i have inserted my SD card.
I have been using my SD card to transfer pictures and video onto my laptop for months; I have a Toshiba laptop, and I am usually able to just put in the card, and access all information on it through My Computer. Now, though, the card just doesn't show up. HOWEVER, the card still works on my camera. HELP?!

Try restarting your computer before putting the card in. If it doesn't how up after a restart when you are in My Computer try hitting F5 on your keyboard to manually refresh the screen. It's possible there could be dust in the card slot but the connections are usually self cleaning. If this doesn't help try the card in another computer or if you can hook the camera directly to the computer eith the appropriate cord.

This is not my area of expertise, but I have done this a few times. Depending on whether you have a removeable SD card or not, you can remove the SD card from the camera and insert it into a reader slot on your Laptop.
Then you will need to access a Media program on your computer or have the Laptop read the SD card with an Autoread setting preprogrammed in the Laptop. If you use a Media program, you would use an "Import" command to transfer the images.
If you do not have an SD reader, you will need a USB port connector to wire the images from the camera to your Laptop. Also the camera may have recorded the pictures on Internal memory without a removeable SD card. You should get the images out of the camera and onto your Laptop as a permanent location for them.
Even with an SD card in your camera, sometimes you need to set up your camera to use the SD card instead of the internal memory.
Finally, if you do have an SD card and are getting nowhere in trying to do this with your equipment, Walgreens have photo equipment which may help you transfer your movies from one Media to another.
Like people, the equipment and capabilities may vary at different locations. Finally, using a service like Walgreens may help you determine if your problem is camera based or Laptop based.
I hope that in some way my solution has helped you.
