    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.

    Enabling SD card reader

    Hi John,

    To isolate your concern, we would like to know the following:

    • Have you tried inserting your SD card reader on a different computer? If yes, how was it?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you taken so far to resolve this?

    For possible resolution, insert the SD card and run the Hardware and Devices Troubleshooter. You may follow the steps below:

    • Click Windows.
    • Type Troubleshooting in the search box, then press Enter.
    • Click Hardware and Sound, and run the Hardware and Devices.
    • Follow the On screen instructions. Once this is done, restart the computer, and check the status.

    Let us know how it goes.
