    I hope it's okay to ask this here, since it seems to be the only really active forum.

    I recently plugged in a microSD card (32GB Samsung) in a USB stick into my laptop and while the laptop signalled that a USB stick was plugged in, the device didn't show up in Windows Explorer. I used this particular combo probably about a month ago with no issues. Any thoughts on what I might try to recover what's on it? Thanks.

    First thing is to try a different USB port.

    Another thing to try is insert the card in a phone, see if it's properly read there. If yes, connect the phone to laptop via USB and access the card from there. That would mean the USB stick is damaged.

    Shutdown/cold booting the computer sometimes fixes wonky stuff. The port thing has happened to me since Windows 10, especially after a major Windows Update, and the reboot fixed it. :vbmad:

    Thanks for the suggestions. I did try a few different ports and devices and tried both a card reader and as mentioned, the USB stick converter. I have not tried my Mac Mini yet, so I'll try that.
