windows 7 pro doesn't recognize fat32

Microsoft Windows 7 professional - upgra...

Specs: Windows 7
I have an old laptop which I upgraded from XP MCE to Windows 7. Since the upgrade I've noticed that Windows 7 OS no longer recognizes my SD cards from a Nikon D40X DSLR camera or the Micro SD card my LG Shine Phone. A message pops up requesting that windows doesn't recognize the file system and that I format the disk. These cards are also not readable on my brother's computer which he also upgraded to Windows 7 - 64 bit. However if I put either of the cards into my dad's computer with Windows 7 they both read just fine. I checked the file system of the card while in my dad's computer and it says it is FAT 32 file system. Now if I put the cards back in to the phone or the camera and connect them to the computer the cards are readable on my computer. Also in the past when running XP MCE, these cards were readable by my computer if I were to plug them in directly. Is there a setting in Windows 7 I need to turn on? The only difference between my dad's system and my brother and mine are that we have the professional version and our dad has Windows Home premium. My dad's computer is also a SONY Viao touchscreen that was configured by SONY. My brother and I installed the OS ourselves using the Upgrade version from XP. Any advice?

Do not format the card with the NTFS file system, your camera won't recognize that format.
