You could uninstall them then plug your SD card in and that should reload the driver, but run a command prompt as an administrator and enter

diskpart

list disk

If you just have the one HDD then that will display Disk 0

select disk 0

list partition

and see what that displays.

Enter exit twice to close the cmd prompt, but if you want to post the cmd window output, right click in the text area - click on Select all and press enter where you'll be able to right click in the reply box and select Paste.

I think a wheelbarrow would be better :D

Have you tried uninstalling those card readers and then plugged your SD back in - you could always create a restore point first.

That's my next step but have to figure out which ones they are in the device manager.
