    sd card reader


    Hi, I have been running a lenovo Z70-80 with a partitioned hard drive with a windows 7 \ linux dual boot setup. It all worked fine until I upgraded to windows 10. After I updated all the drivers everything worked well except the sd card reader. This will keep disconnecting or telling me it is an invalid drive location. The sd card works fine on linux, so it is a windows issue. I would guess a driver. Now lenovo have a driver for the sd on their website that i have downloaded and installed, but looking at the device manager, the sd card reader is driven by microsoft storage spaces controller. I can not figure out how to remove that driver and use the lenovo one. Is there anything I am missing or any recommendations you can give me. It is windows 64 bit as was windows 7 prior to upgrade

    :)

    SD card/SD card reader no longer working

    Hi. New to this so not sure of category.
    I have a Lenovo G70. Windows 10, 64bit
    My SD card reader has stopped working.
    In Device Manager, the SD card is not listed.
    I can't format the card as it is not listed.
    I cannot locate the card at all as it is not listed anywhere.
    I've tried chkdsk and get 'Cannot open volume for direct access'
    I don't even have the icon displaying when micro SD card is inserted.
    It did work previously but I had errors. Scanning and fixing did not help.
    I place the SD card in my Android phone and it works fine.
    Please help!
    Thank you for any assistance.

    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.

    SD card/SD card reader no longer working

    Bradleyb, in your Device Manager do you have anything listed in Storage Controllers? I get an entry for MMC/SD. I just checked a 1GB SD card and a 4GB SDHC card, both worked in File Explorer to show their contents.

    Side note: A caveat for such cards is that if they are to be used in a camera they need to be formatted in the camera, not in Windows.
