It's a common problem when you do a OS upgrade, Is that the only device in Device Manager that isn't working? Any Unknown Devices? You didn't supply the Model of Toshiba, or the original OS? Download and save the Card Reader driver for Win 7, Change the Compatibility of the driver and install.
When you improperly ejected the card you messed up the MFT (master file table) on the card. You will want to format the card.
You could have hosed the drivers. In Device manager look under the driver details there should be some files listed. You will probably need to delete these and replace them. Since they may be system files you would need to replace them in a live boot environment such as a linux live boot cd (ubuntu.com) would be the easiest. Get the drivers it has listed copy them to a thumb drive. Boot the computer to the live CD, delete the driver files and replace with the new ones.
Some SD and MMC have a security feature in them. If so you will need the disk that came along with it. After you install it then that's the time you can fully utilize your SD/MMC. SD means Secure Data / MMC means Multi Media Card.
If your card reader is not appearing in the My Computer then check if it is detected in the Windows device manager. Go to START > CONTROL PANEL > DEVICE MANAGER. Usually it is under the category of Disk Adapters or Human Interface Device. If it's not present then unplug and plug the device back in. Or try a different USB port to see if that will work. If it doesn't then most likely the reader is defective. But if it is detected and still not able to read the SD/MMC and the SD is being read by a different computer then the issue could be that the SD is not compatible with the reader.
to use the cardreader, place in the SD card into the reader, it comes up automatically and asks you what to do or you will have to open "my computer" or "computer" which you will find from either your desktop or from start menu.
the sd card is most likely one of the removeable storage devices and the content will be inside there, double click to open.
Have a look into the device manager, right click my computer, select manage, then on the left side of the management window click on device manager, plug in the sd, do you see any ? or ! or yellow marks or unknown devices that a driver would be missing from or malfunctioning?

check in the device manager :- my computer/control Panel/System/device manager. And look if you have any yellow exclamation marks ( yellow boxes ) if yes, you have to re-install the device driver.

Right click and open to locate your files from SD Card.
