Check the device manager for any errors.
Also check the event logs (event viewer) for errors.

It might be just the notification Window that has gone.

Check in My Computer to see if you can see the contents of an inserted card there.
If so we can suggest a fix.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Happy to report, all it took was to clean the gold contacts of the sd card with a lens cleaning card. Couldn't believe it, something that simple. Thanks for the help!

Well done and thanks for popping back. One for us all to take note of.
Pencil eraser also works well on edge connectors if they are very bad.
