If you have a memory card reader it is probably plugged into an internal USB connector and is recognized as a USB device. You may need to reload your drivers for this to be corrected. Go to Device Manager and look for the warning about the device and uninstall it there. Then use 'Detect New Hardware' to reinstall the device and load the newest drivers.

Could also be your internal webcam, assuming this is a laptop

How would you fix the web cam? When I try to open the camera it says it's not found.

Download the newest drivers from the mfg's website and install. If that does not work, delete in Device Manager and then 'detect devices' or restart the machine. Windows will reinstall it with the new drivers you installed.
