  1. I restored Windows using the CD some time ago. Ever since then, I have not been able to get any kind of removable media to work with it.

    I have both a USB flash drive and a SD card reader, which are both recognised by Device Manager and Disk Management, but haven't been assigned a drive letter. Whenever I try to do it in Disk Management, it won't show up in My Computer.

    Someone please help me!
