    Major problem with SD Card Reader on Dell Xps 18, it has vanished.


    I use my card reader almost daily and two days ago I put it in to pull some pictures off of it and the computer never showed the drive. I finally found it and it was hidden under drives.
    So I did a lot of research, updating drivers, reinstalling them, even went back a few restore points but it now just seems to have vanished. It does not show up in Device manager, it is no where.
    I know I can do a total reset on my system but I really don't want to do that.
    There has got to be something I am missing here.

    I even search different threads in here and any fixes that were provided have not worked.

    :)

    Dell U3011 SD card reader U/S after fall creators update


    I have a Dell U3011 monitor which has an SD card reader. Since I installed the fall creators update (Win10 x64 Pro), the card reader is no longer functional. I've tried multiple SD cards, and none of them show as a drive. When I look in Device Manager, under USB Controllers I see "Unknown USB device (Device Descriptor Request Failed)".

    The PC is dual boot with Ubuntu, and when I boot Ubuntu the SD card reader works, so the problem is not with the hardware. Any suggestions on a fix? I use the card reader fairly frequently.

    SD Card reader vanished from my system... between uses


    I move pics from my camera via the SD card & the built-in reader on my Dell XPS 8700 (WIndows 10).

    Yesterday I moved some pics, ejected the card, took more pics & put the card in the reader slot (SD/mini-MMC/RS Card [Hard drive] -- drive 5) and no card shows up ... so I remove, try again, reboot, try again, check in Device Mgr, etc.

    No card readers show up in the Device Mgr or anywhere else: just gone! But the little light beside the the card reader is flash flash flashing... any thoughts?

    Could it just be a bad/loose connection internally?

    Note the card is fine in the camera.

    P.S. Please don't reply with that thing about the File Explorer Hide drives setting: it is NOT that!*cry

    1. download the right drivers from this link : Intel SD Host Controller Drivers Download for Windows 10, 8.1, 7, Vista, XP .

    2. Follow "To install the drivers:" in this link : Solved: Yoga Tab 2 1051-F microSD Card not reading after u... - Page 2 - Lenovo Community

    After doing this , I opened my Device Manager and right clicked the intel SD Host Controler, under SD Host adapter and run Update Driver Software . There however will be warning sign hanging there , but what can you do Microsoft employees are only drawing paychecks but tired doing the same thing again again and gave us the ---- of Windows 10.Lets Live with it. My SD Card reader runs like 1/4th of a second (FAST). Cool Right ? Do it ! and save your Chicken from burning.
