    SD card reader does not work


    I am using Asus UX330CA laptop with Win10 64 bit. After recent PC reset my SD card reader does not work. So far:

    - Installed all the drivers from ASUS support page (chipset, card reader, etc.)

    - I can see Alcor Micro USB 2.0 Card Reader under Device Manager USB Controllers.

    - When I insert SD card, it does not appear as a drive nor is seen in Disk Management.

    - I've checked the card, it works properly on other devices.

    :)

    SD Card reader not working.

    Hi,

    There are several reasons why your SD card reader is not working. To assist you better, kindly answer the questions below:

    • Have you made any changes to your computer prior to this issue?
    • What are the other troubleshooting steps have you done so for?
    • Have you tried to use another SD card reader and see if it is getting recognized or detected by your computer?

    Regards.

    Boot from SD card Reader?


    It likely depends on what the BIOS thinks the device is? If it shows up like a USB thumb drive it should work. If it requires drivers to even be detected it won't.
    I know I wish I could boot from the built in SD Card reader in my laptop but the BIOS does not even see it. It's not listed as a boot option even with a bootable SD card in it.

    Boot from SD card Reader?


    Thanks guys. It looks like it basically comes down to what the BIOS thinks of the card reader, and if it even sees it.


    That's basically one of the questions there... since the machine has a card reader built in, can they boot from an SD card?

    As stated, it just comes down to what the BIOS thinks and does.

    Thanks for all the replies. Will link this thread over there.

    @ Indianatone, that's good info with the screen shots

    Peace *Cool
