Windows 7 doesn't read my Dynex usb 2.0 card reader

I have a Dynex usb 2.0 card reader that I use for my digital camera pictures. It always worked with my Windows XP but when I plug it into Windows 7 now, nothing happens. Windows 7 is not recognizing it at all.

Does the reader still work with XP? They do fail eventually and it could be coincidental with switching to Win 7. Also, if you are now using a high capacity SDHC or SDXC card, the old reader may not support them, regardless of version of Windows.

1. You have to see if the program is compatible with the Windows 7 operating system.
this is possibly due to drivers that the Windows 7 doesn't have in the "cab" files.
this manufacturer of the Dynex is your next step for a Windows 7 driver set.

    I already guessed that my device (Dynex Genie USB 2.0 Card reader) is not compatible with the drivers Windows 7 comes with. Are there Windows 7 drivers somewhere? A search brings up suggestions that I download something to analyze my drivers, and I dislike downloading a testing program when I already know what I need drivers for. Hope there are some suggestions out there.

Windows 7 for downloading


Do you mean the Windows 95 OS or Windows 7? If you have Windows 95B (with USB support), get a USB card reader. You may need to add a USB card to your computer. (Look carefully at the manufacturer's site for the drivers, fewer companies are providing drivers for the older OS versions (before XP).) Windows 95a doesn't support USB at all. You would need a new OS. This is not guaranteed to work. If you upgrade Win95a to Win98, issues may still exist with the USB card reader. Remove the card from the camera and plug into the xD slot on the card reader. If the card reader works, you can use a version of Photoshop or any image viewer since your photos are JPEGs.

If you mean Windows 7, your computer might have an memory card reader. Check for an xD card slot. Otherwise, get a card reader (USB or internal that uses a 3.5" drive bay and connects to an available USB motherboard connector if you have one). Here is a source for several USB card readers: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?MfrId=0&CatId=2833 . Remove the card from the camera and insert it into the computer's xD slot. Then use the Windows Photo Viewer or any other image viewing or editing program to look at the pictures.

Open the card as you would any flash drive or optical disc. Go to Computer (My Computer) and access the card reader "drive", open folders to find the Olympus one. Drag and drop pictures to your hard drive or double-click to launch in the program linked to the JPEG file type.

Windows 8 will behave like Windows 7 with the card reader (for most readers).

I hope this helps.

Windows 7 doesn't uploas images from Canon 20D


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Windows Photo Gallery or any other photo cataloging program.

Windows 7 doesn't recognize usb connection so how do i import pictures to the comptuer?


Try to reinstall drivers for the camera.
If there is no way to get this working you can always buy a card reader and copy the photos from the card directly, without having to connect the camera.

How do i insert the 8b memory card in the memory card reader? i've tried it several ways and it does not light up??? i need a visual


The Dynex 5-in-1 Reader may be too old to read high capacity secure digital cards. (HCSD)
An 8 GB SD card is definitely going to be high capacity. Only the relatively newer SD readers can read the HCSDs.

Try putting in a 2 GB or lower size SD card and see if it works. If it does, then your card reader doesn't support higher capacity cards.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

I have fe 46 my softwere olympus master 2 was work on window xp but it dose not work on window 7 my pc can not read this camera memory card. what can i do


You should be able to access this camera's memory without installing any software on Windows 7. When connected via a USB cable, the camera's memory will appear as a disk drive in "My Computer", and you will be able to copy files from there. This may be less convenient than the way you are used to working, but you will be able to get your pictures.

Another way that people get pictures off any camera that uses memory cards is take the card out of the camera and put it into a card reader attached to the computer. Some people prefer this method over using a cable. You would need a reader that can read xD cards.

You can download a manual from Olympus on this page.

Olympus does not currently have any software updates available for this camera. The Olympus Master 2 software pages claim compatibility with Windows Vista, but not Windows 7, and there does not seem to be any update available.

Card was accidently formatted. Is there any way to get those pictures back?


Hi Fitz,

Dont sweat, you can get them back. It all depends on how much the card was used since the format.

1-dont use that card again or take pictures with it until you
2- download this free utility for windows (i hope you have windows)-
http://www.recuva.com/
3-install it and read the online help & directions to get an idea
4- put your card in your computer's card reader, or borrow or buy a card reader and put it in a usb port on your computer
5 run the program after your card is recognized by the computer, ask it to recover jpg files and point it to the removable drive you just created (the card in the reader)
6. pick a place to recover the files to (your computer-- anywhere but the same memory card)
7. start the recovery process
8 cross your fingers!

good luck.
