Re: sd card reader

Have you tried downloading the drivers for your SD card reader? You can obtain them for your laptop from the Toshiba download site here. Once you install the updated drivers, it will probably solve your problem. If not, leave a comment and I will try to help further.

HPmodel 2000 notebook SD socket won't respond

First - try different SD cards to be sure it is not the card at fault. I assume it is showing up in Windows Explorer - it should be shown as a Removable Drive with a drive letter - on mine it is G: - Note that autoplay might be turned off, so any inserted card may not pop-up automatically. Assuming the card is fine and it fails to show up in Windows Explorer, or if the drive itself is not in Windows Explorer, look in the device manager to be sure the SD reader device is being recognized by windows and if it is enabled - if it says disabled on not working properly, try to reinstall the driver. In my device manager, it shows up under Disk drives as a multi-card USB device and under Portable devices, it shows up as G:/. Alternatively, go to the HP site and see if there is an updated driver - if so, download and install that, reboot and test it again. IF these all fail, it could be a hardware problem.

Toshiba Satelite SD Card reader driver

It's a common problem when you do a OS upgrade, Is that the only device in Device Manager that isn't working? Any Unknown Devices? You didn't supply the Model of Toshiba, or the original OS? Download and save the Card Reader driver for Win 7, Change the Compatibility of the driver and install.

My ACER 6930 has a SD card reader that will not respond. HOw do I manage it. Cannot find anything in control panel about it?


make sure you got the card reader drivers installed.

to use the cardreader, place in the SD card into the reader, it comes up automatically and asks you what to do or you will have to open "my computer" or "computer" which you will find from either your desktop or from start menu.

the sd card is most likely one of the removeable storage devices and the content will be inside there, double click to open.

To view pictures from my sd card

Have you got the drivers installed for The Card-Reader.
check in the device manager :- my computer/control Panel/System/device manager. And look if you have any yellow exclamation marks ( yellow boxes ) if yes, you have to re-install the device driver. Or go to My Computer. You should Have C:/ ( hard-drive ) D;/ And Or E:/ Cd/Dvd Rom. And if you Have G;/ F:/ H:/ Or I:/ et,c. this is where your SD Card Is. Right click and open to locate your files from SD Card.

Hope this helps you out.

SD Card Reader Not Working on Acer Aspire 5600 Laptop

Your card reader on your computer isn't capable of reading SDHC cards. You have to use a card reader approved for SDHC use.

SD Card Reader won't work?

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.

1 start
2 control pannel
3 system
4 then the hardware tab and click the device manager.

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.

hope this helps
