Re: sd card reader not working
First you have to know that it´s not good to re-format any kind of flash card such as pendrives, sd cards, and etc...in windows never! ntfs could destroy it, even fat32 can make it crazy...
What you must have to do is to use a HP flash drive format utility...hp flashdrive tool....
using this might recover and bring your SD card to life!

have you tried other sd cards before or is this the first time?
if you have and its just this time it hasent make sure its working in your camera or mp3 player or where ever it came from :-)
if it works have a look in your device manager to make sure there are no problems with the drivers.

if there are anyproblems there is useually a little symbol next to the device just double click on it and have a look for the error code.
if all else fails try reinstaling the driver for your card reader or find an updated drivr download.
