I am trying to read a media card in my L530. I can read it on my wife's PC fine so it isn't the data card. The Windows 7 drive window to import or open the directories does not appear. When I open Explorer the drive is not listed under Computer. The device appears to be working properly as DM finds no issues and the drivers are current. Neither does Lenovo's toolkits. I rebooted just to make sure to no avail.
It seems as though this is a Windows 7 issue more than hardware related, but I am clueless as to where to look for the resolution. What am I missing?

Have you tried a different media card?
I am also clueless, I have never experienced this myself. So I don't know where to start. Usually I would reinstall the operating system and then all the drivers to rule out an installation corruption... But ofcourse back-up your data first. If the reinstall doesnt work then you might want to replace the media card reader.

The media card is fine. It works in my camera and also the wife's reader on her laptop. I did, though, solve it. I was close to the solution.
In Device Manager you go to the Universal Serial Bus Controllers and uninstall all of the USBs. They'll come back in Windows 7 as soon as you reboot. I don't know which one it is that controls the media reader so I just started uninstalling until there weren't any others to do. I re-booted, logged in, and I was good to go.
