    This seems a bit obvious but.....did you try unmounting it? It should automatically unmount when you disconnect the USB. You could try plugging in the USB and mounting it then unmount it. If that doesn't work try rebooting if you haven't already.

    Please Note! Make sure before you start your Droid is not connected to your computer.

    You need to uninstall the drivers each and every time you want to mount your SD card, but in order to uninstall them you need to be able to uninstall hidden devices in your device manager.

    I dont think his issues are with Windows recognizing the Card.

    All of us Evo owners just went through this.

    Bottom line, copy contents off SD card (like back it up to a PC!). Format SD card in Windows using default settings. Plug card into Droid. Format Card on your Droid by going to Menu>Settings>SD & Phone Storage.

    This fixed a ton of our issues.
