Try them on another machine, if they work there, then you probably need to update your card reader's driver.

you may need to disable antivirus software and try. I had this problem sporadically.

Please keep us updated so we know if we helped you or not.

DO NOT disable antivirus program when reading a memory card, even if you are sure it is infection free. Find the problem and solve it.
Sometimes a restart will fix this but usually you need to download the newest driver and install it. if this does not appear to work then delete the device from device manager and then detect hardware or restart the machine to reinstall the card reader with the uncorrupted driver.

In case you need it:
You go to the manufacturer's website and go to Support>Downloads>Drivers and search for your model and your operating system and look for the driver for your memory card reader.

faizy86:
Registry cleaners are not the answer. They are not the answer in MOST cases. They are risky and are known to do serious damage, especially to those who do not know what to OK to remove or change.

Keeping a computer clean does not involve cleaning the registry and Windows 7 is much better than previous versions of Windows for keeping it's registry in reasonable condition. I had a Windows XP system that ran for over 9 years and only needed a registry correction once in those years due to an infection, after the infection was removed. This was done manually with great care after much research. What I ALWAYS do is keep the machine clean of junk and this means cleaning out browsers DAILY and using the Windows Disk Clean Up feature every few months and a defrag two or three times a year (more often before XP). Windows 7 is definitely better at self defragging but maybe worse at collecting junk so clean up is important.

IN THIS CASE, I do not see the need for any of these other than for normal maintenance and the suggestion of updating the relative driver was already mentioned above.
