Not sure if this helps or not, but did you right click on winImager and run it as administrator? I just rooted a Nook Color on Friday night so that much is fresh in my head, but I had no problems getting WinImager to recognize my microSD card.
On other thing you might try is to put that microSD card in the Nook and use the Nook's format ability to format it. Then see if your computer can see it successfully.

What OS is your computer using? If linux/osX i cannot help you. If windows use this Free Partition Magic alternative & free Partition Manager Software for Windows PC, Workstation and Server - EaseUS. tool to help you with the project. First get your SD card formatted FAT32 and visible in windows. Run the manager as admin and apply the image. At this point the SD card will drop from available drives (this is normal). Then remove the SD from the reader and follow rooting intructions. Should work fine. Afterwards use the partition tool to restore your sd card to normal for use.
