    Your SD Card Reader could be broken?

    Also, if it reads it should just be Under My Computer where flash drives etc appear.

    Have you tried inserting a different SD Card and seeing it it reads that? just because it's working on your brothers doesnt mean yours isnt broken.

    Could also need a Blow/Clean and a Wiggle while inside the Reader (My Old Computer Requires the SD Card to be "Moved" while inside the reader before it would read :l

    Install the correct drivers for your card reader, no doubt windows 8 will not know which ones to install.

    Since you are using windows 8, I would check to see if there updated drivers for your SD reader. There may not be. AA lot of manufacturers haven't upgraded drivers for all their hardware because Windows 8 isn't in retail yet. That's why anyone using windows 8 use it as a secondary OS, until the full version is made available. I run Windows 7 and 8. But windows 8 is so buggy, and doesn't have all the features that windows 7 has, I rarely use it.

    Install the windows 7 ones anyways, 8 is basically a clone of 7 with a pretty start menu.
    Worked for my touchpad on my laptop and my graphics card
