Nothing's listed as "Removable Drive" in My Computer? Do they work in your camera or another card reader (try an external card reader that plugs in via USB...they're fairly cheap for the multi-type card readers). If the cards work, but you're not seeing anything, you could have a dead reader in your laptop. Either that, or try to find updated drivers for it.

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the under my post
