Why isn't my Laptop recognizing my USB card reader?

My Laptop is a Lenovo, not that great I know, but it does the job. Except all of a sudden it wont recognise my card reader, I have photos on this SD card that I want to transfer onto my laptop, so I use the card reader cause it's easier. My laptop is a windows 7, and all the drivers are up to date, one day it was recognising it and the next it doesn't. It shows up on devices and printers but not on my computer just wondering if anyone could help. I've googled it but haven't found a solution, your help would be very appreciated, Thank you!!

First try unplugging (and removing the battery on a laptop), press the power button for five seconds. Leave it for two minutes and try the USB again... More

Check device manager (start, type device manager, enter), if you see anything that has a yellow mark beside it, it could be your card reader that its not working properly or has no driver, if you dont see anything, then probably your card reader is broken.
