Question about Computers & Internet
Go to your start-up programs, click on TOSHIBA,
click on UTILITIES, and then SETTING FOR FLASH CARDS. You will be able
to disable or enable your flash cards from there. But a word of warning-
once you disable the flash cards, your keyboards Fn hotkeys wont work
which is a bit of an inconvenience, at least so I found!
But an update to the problem on my computer, it has stopped doing it!
Honestly can't tell you of anything special that I have done, but for the last week or so, having disabled and then enabled the flash cards again, the 'drop-downs' have stopped.
Rather strange, but there it is.
A couple of Windows updates have come in sine then, but as they were in the main security related, I am still a little perplexed...
Did however start monitoring the performance and reliabilty of the computer at the height of the problem.
Noticed that as the reliabilty index climbed, so did the general overall stability of the computer. Could this have had a knock on effect on the inner workings of the Flash cards I wonder?
From an index figure of under 5 to it's present near all-time high of about 8.5 (out of the box it's a perfect 10), the computer seems to be back on an even keel (touch wood!)
I suggest that anyone with a similar problem make sure that any relevant Windows updates are installed, that they 'chill-out' on stressing their computers (no software installs and the like, just day to day general use for at least a while), and that they allow the system to stabilise generally.
That's all I've done, and well as I said the computer is good again.
As I originally mentioned concerning this paticular model, it somehow finds a way to get back on its feet pretty much every time.
Try all that you can as I did, but if all else fails just give it time.
You never know, sounds daft but that might be all it needs...
Hope that helps...

If you are referring to the Driver for the Toshiba Flash Card Reader, then you may install it from the Computer manufacturer website.
The Driver for the Flash Card Reader is required in order to use it.
Once you have installed the Driver or Application, you may use the Flash Cards normally.
However, you may also provide me the Model # of the Computer, so that I can provide the Driver download link.
Hope this helps.
Please feel free to contact for further detailed information.
