How to import photos to Photo Gallery from an SD card

What to do when Windows 7 won't show your photos

QUESTION When I try to import photos from an SD Card to my Windows 7 laptop, the card doesn't appear in Photo Gallery's 'Import Photos and Videos' dialog box. I can access my SD Card in Windows Explorer, however. How can I get Photo Gallery to display the SD Card? Peter Harrison
