    I windows 7 you have to click start- type -diskmgmt.msc - right click on the memory drive and mount it. you can also change the drive letter.

    I think in windows 7 is not able to  mount the drive letter try manually doing it and check.

    Yes , when using USB memory card reader , with most of the readers , the drive will only show when the memory card is inserted. There is nothing wrong with it. Windows 7 does this because most of the laptops nowadays have built-in memory card readers.... so it hides the drive unless there is some media present in it
