You do not say, but before ejecting an SD card you should use the Safely remove hardware feature. If you do not do so you may damage your SD card, and you run into problems such as you describe.

I want to put photos and music on my sd card in my phone from my computer


This can be done easily if your computer has a SD Slot otherwise you have to buy a USB SD card adapter and put the SD card in that to connect to your computer and transfer whatever you want from computer to SD card depending on the capacity of SD Card
When you connect SD Card to your computer by above method that will create a drive on your computer. Click on my computer to see your new drive. Now you can transfer files from C drive to your new E or F drive whichever letter computer assigned to your new drive. good luck!

Some ideas:
Did you go to My Computer - its where the card would appear as an external volume.
Go to Device Manager and check the SD card reader- reinstall the driver if need be.
Could it be the card itself is at fault? Try a different card.

Micro sd 2gb card, not read.


Sometimes when a flash memory stick fails because it was not removed from the USB port properly. If the device is removed by just pulling it out of the USB port, it can cause the flash device to fail, you must click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on the Task Bar and select the device you wish to remove and only do so when instructed to do so.

When the flash memory device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restore it by reformatting it. Insert the flash drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Healthy.

You need to format the external drive. Format the drive as primary drive and in FAT32. (FAT32 will allow data to be exchanged between MACs and PCs).
Insert the external hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Health.

Sd card reader not working


first you have to know that it´s not good to re-format any kind of flash card such as pendrives, sd cards, and etc...in windows never! ntfs could destroy it, even fat32 can make it crazy...
What you must have to do is to use a HP flash drive format utility...hp flashdrive tool....
using this might recover and bring your SD card to life!
Good Luck!

Reg mmc card reading


Normally you'd just be able to open My Computer, and plug the card in to the built in slot, and it would pop up as the next available drive letter. If the internal slot is missing or inoperative, you could buy a cheap MMC to USB adapter, plug the card into the adapter, and the adapter into a USB slot.
