  1. SD card not working when inserted; Troubleshoot Hardware and Devices gone.


    I've been trying to find ways to get my sd card reader working again. Since I've updated to the latest version of windows, I've had nothing but regret because now my laptop is unable to use my SD card reader and I can't even troubleshoot my hardware to even attempt to use it because now the "Troubleshoot Hardware and Devices" option is gone. It's really pissing me off that windows would decide to do this. Does anyone know a way to get around this? I need my SD card reader for my projects and I don't have any other devices to share my sd cards with.

    :)
