    memory card use problem - will not show in Windows Explorer


    I know this problem has been raised before and I've tried all the suggested remedies to no avail.

    The cards show in Disk Management with a drive letter assigned but not in Windows Explorer.

    I have looked at the hide attribute for empty drives and it is unchecked. I have uninstalled the

    device in Device Manager, rebooted and let the system reinstall it. No success. I have also tried

    updating the driver and the system says it is already using the recommended driver. I can open the

    drive from Disk Management and work with it then but no Windows Explorer entry. The device

    shows in Device Manager and says it is operating normally. The entry in Device Manager is under

    Disk Drives. There is no entry for MemoryTechnology devices.

    All of this is on a Windows 10 1909 system. Cannot update to 2004 or later due to Conexant

    sound chipset issue. The problem also manifests itself on a Dell laptop running Windows 10 20H2.

    Except there it also cannot write to the cards because something is telling it that all the cards I

    try are write-protected. And yes the cards are not write-protected because the same cards were

    writable on the desktop with the aforementioned initial problem.

    So, anyone have any ideas without reiterating to try the solutions already tried?

    :)

    Windows Explorer crashes and thumbnails problem

    Hi, I hope you can help me.
    Windows Explorer is no longer showing thumbnails on files played by Windows Media Player. I've run cmd and regsvr32 shmedia.dll and regsvr32 shimgvw.dll. That seemed to solve the problem...but it created a different one. Now when I try to open a folder on an external hard drive it crashes. I read in an old 2008 post it was an avi file causing the problem and suggested the run cmd regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll. That solved the opening problem but recreated the thumbnail problem. Any help to achieve both functions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
