    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.

    Try this, it worked for me, it seems to be a common problem with the SD cards, but it's a little involved, and must be done every time before you mount the SD card.

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

    All of us Evo owners just went through this.

    This fixed a ton of our issues.
