Windows 10: Retrieve device after hitting "Remove Device"

    Retrieve device after hitting "Remove Device"


    I recently put my camera memory card into my computer to download photos. I couldn't open them and need to leave so hit "remove device" figuring that I'd go back later when I had more time to get them. When I went back and reinserted the card it didn't show up. I've tried to "add a device" but it still doesn't work. When I hit the device and printers icon it doesn't show up.

    What do I do?

    Reboot the system and try again.

    Hi. I've done that a few times and reinserted the card a few times and still it doesn't pop up.

    Try accessing the card from the camera. There are utilities out there to retrieve from a corrupted memory card. Memory cards like USB sticks, do not last forever. Once the card starts to get corrupted, you have to resort to using the tools to get what you can from the card. Majorgeeks.com has the tools available on their website.

    Thanks. I'll try that.
