  1. SD card reader


    I am having a problem with my SD card reader - I used to insert the card and it would read off the photos right away. Now it is telling me that I need to format the card to driver G - I don't recall the drive being G. I took the card home and my computer at home can read it fine - the drive there is F - so not sure if the drive has been changed and how do I fit this - both computers have windows 10 and have had them for 2 years

    :)

    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.

  3. 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
