    SD card driver not working


    I am trying to transfer some files to an SD card, but it is not showing up in file explorer. When I check Device Manager, it says the driver for SD cards has been blocked from working, showing a code 48. However, if i try to update, it says I already have the best version of the driver. Does anyone know where to download a new driver, or how to fix this issue?

    :)

    Hi Andrew,

    I would need to ask few questions so I can isolate your concern properly. Kindly answer the following:

    • Did you get a specific error message?
    • What are the troubleshooting steps you have done so far?
    • What's the current build of your computer? Press Windows key + R and then type winver.
    • Did you try to run a full system scan using your anti-virus? Can you tell us the result?
    • Does your SD card has a write protection?

    Meanwhile, you may try these troubleshooting steps:

    Step 1: Run the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter. Open Settings> Update & Security> Troubleshoot> Hardware and Devices> Run the troubleshooter.

    Step 2: Check SD Card in Disk Management.

    1. Open Disk Management.
    2. Your SD card will appear as a removable disk.
    3. Check if it has a drive letter.
    4. If it does not show anything, right click the SD card and then select “Change Drive Letter and Paths”.
    5. Click “Add” and select a drive letter, then click “OK”.

    Step 3: Update SD card driver.

    1. Open Device manager.
    2. Find your SD card and right click it.
    3. Select Properties.
    4. Click the driver tab and then select Update Driver.

    Note: You may need to use a keyboard and mouse to connect to your laptop to perform the said steps if it does not allow on tablet mode.

    Hello,

    As you are facing issues with accessing SD card on your device, we will help you with this issue.

    Provide us additional information to assist you better:

    • What is the make and model of your device?
    • Have you made any changes to the operating system prior to this issue that might have resulted in this?
    • What exactly happens when you try to access the SD card?

    This might have occurred due to corrupted/outdated port drivers. As a workaround try the below troubleshooting steps and check if it helps.

    I suggest you to connect different SB card to the port and check if it is detected. This will let us know if the issue is with SD card or the port.

    Also, if you are using SD card reader connected to the port to access SD card try to connect to different ports as well.

    Step 1: If the drive is being detected in Device Manager try the below to update the drivers:


    • Right click on Start button and select
      Device Manager.

    • Expand the SD card/ USB ports drivers, right click on the drivers and click on
      Update driver software.

    • Restart the computer and check if the issue persists.

    Step 2: If the device is not detected on your computer try to run Hardware and Devices troubleshooter.

    Hardware and Devices troubleshooter
    checks for common problems and makes sure that any new device or hardware connected to your PC is installed correctly.

    • Press Windows key from the keyboard, type
      Troubleshooting and select it.
    • Click on view all option on the upper left corner of
      Troubleshooting window.
    • Select the Hardware and Device
      options from the list.
    • Click Next to run the Hardware and Device
      Troubleshooter

    Hope it helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of this issue and required information for further assistance.

    Thank you.
