    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.

  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
