    i didnt realize it didnt work till just now is there any other way?

  • discglfr Jun 27, 2008

    I recently purchased a Toshiba Satellite laptop that has a built in SD Card reader which works only once in a while.

    Here is the funny thing - when I put a card in it makes a sound like the laptop is recognizing the card but then it doesn't appear when I go in my computer to look at this card.

    The crazy part is ... it OCCASIONALLY does work. I was just in the control panel a few minutes ago and it says it is 'disabled'. I tried to 'enable' it and it just says that it can't. I also tried searching for updated drivers and it said none were available.

    I have a Toshiba Satellite A205-S5859. It is running Vista.

    ANY help would be greatly appreciated because I know this thing SHOULD work.

Not the sd card reader, it's a driver problem in windows try doing a system restore to a date back in the past where it did work.

Sd card reader not working

First check if are any drivers missing. If there are, try update drivers to solve. If not then you must open the notebook and check if there any visual damage in the card reader inside.

the cheapest way to fix this is to buy a usb card reader, there plenty on the market for abou 10$ or 15$. If the internal card reader is damaged you would spend a lot more money to fix it.

Get an USB card reader, insert the SD memory card into the USB card reader and then connect the cable from the USB card reader into the USB port on your computer. Your computer will see the card reader and SD memory as an external storage device, click on this drive and open the folders on the SD memory card to view your photos.

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