Just to clarify:

I doubt "jpag3074" means you to permanently disable UAC (which is a security feature), even if it fixes the problem. Just do this temporarily to help diagnose your issue. After that you need to turn UAC back on again and report back here.

EDIT: Improved wording.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Well... I disable mine, but that's because I understand it.

I would ultimately suggest understanding it, and making the decision for yourself. Asking any questions for clarification of course :)

You might be able to take ownership of the drive to make this one acceptable to security features

Right click on the Pen/SD card drive from the Windows Explorer window and click on “Properties”.
Click on the “Security” tab.
Click on “Edit” under “Group or User names” and select “Add”.
In the new window that opens, type “everyone” under “Enter the object names to select” and click on “Check Names”. OK
Select “Full Control” under “Permissions for everyone”.
Click on “Apply”, then “Ok”. Then Click on “Ok”.

"Well... I disable mine, but that's because I understand it"

No problem with that at all. Helpers on this forum are well aware of safe browsing and so forth. However, the average computer user is often quite different. My feeling is that "most" would be best to keep UAC enabled.

In this instance there is clearly an issue which it ought to be possible to resolve (somehow) without permanently disabling UAC, although temporarily disabling it could be very useful for diagnosis. Most folk can copy an SD Card to their computer despite UAC being enabled. #4 is a possible way forward but there might be others - we shall see.

If #4 does not fix it let us know what security programs you have on board - they have been known to cause this issue.

As per #1, let us know if temporarily disabling UAC allows the card to be read.

There is a "possibility" that this problem is virus related.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
