Solved: usb ports and memory card reader do not work

Q: Solved: usb ports and memory card reader do not work

On the front of my tower, an HP Pavilion, there are two USB ports and also a memory card reader. Suddenly all are not working. The USB ports on the back of the tower still work, however. Is there something--like downloading new drivers--I could do to fix this problem?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My Gateway GT5228 has stopped recognizing my USB ports and my Digital Media Card Reader. The problem started about the time my Symantac subscription was 1 month from expiration and somehow the virus protection was turned off (not by me). My guess is I received a virus as a result. But I cannot figure out how to resolve the problem. I'm using McAfee now, but cannot find any viruses on the computer after multiple scans. What can I do to restore the ports and the card reader? Thanks in advance for your help.

A:[SOLVED] USB Ports and Media Card Reader will not work

Hello jeff29963

Try reinstalling USB first

Make sure all USB devices are unplugged
Right click My Computer/Properties/Hardware/Device Manager
Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers.
Right-click the device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers and then click Uninstall to remove it.

Repeat this with every entry under Universal Serial Bus controllers until they are all gone.

Reboot your system, and windows will detect the new hardware and re-install the drivers. Under normal circumstances, this should be enough to get your USB ports working again.

My USB ports and memory card reader have all of a sudden stopped working correctly . the mem card slots i cant tell if they are working at all but the usb ports are still sending power as iv still be able to charge my mp3 player but it just will not send any data .. this is made even more frustrating as i was using them both less that 10 hours ago iv not installed any new software and i have not changed any hardware so tbh im completely at a loss as to why they arnt working .

iv done only the basic things to attempt to get them working again.. i un-installed them from device manager and let windows re-install them to no avail . I also went in to my bios and made sure that the ports were enabled .. they were ..

any help you could give would be very much appreciated .

A:USB ports and memory card reader not working correctly

Try downloading and updating the system BIOS. Then download the latest chipset drivers for your machine and re-install.

I've actually had an instance on my work laptop where the USB ports- all 3 of them did not work. I had to replace the system board in this case.

Sometimes charging electronic devices through USB ports will zap your system.
It happend to me. External USB drive to be precise is what blew mine.

Prior to upgrade to Windows 10, this machine was running Windows 7 Ultimate without problem.  I frequently use the SD Card reader in the machine to upload Photos I have taken with my Camera.  After upgrade to Windows 10 the machine does not recognize the very same SD card.  I have contacted Microsoft windows 10 support about this problem.  They poked around in the machine and had no answer. I think an appropriate driver is needed from HP to make the SD Card reader in the machine work.  Please help! I am using a work around now.  I use an SD to USB adapter to load my photos but this is not the way the process should work. Again, please help!

A:SD Memory Card Reader does not work after Windows 10 Upgrade

Hi @krmiller?, I checked the support page for your computer, and I only see Windows Vista and Windows 7 drivers, no Windows 10 (not even Windows 8). Your computer was released in June 2009 -- it will probably not get updated drivers for Win10. From HP Desktop PCs - Upgrading to Windows 10: If you purchased your computer prior to August 2013, HP has not tested or developed drivers for your computer model. Some features might not work, or the installation might not be successful.HP provides Windows 10 compatible software and updated drivers to support only specific computer models. If the SD card reader issue is the only problem you're having after upgrading, believe me, it could be worse. The USB card reader you're using now as a workaround is probably the best solution. If it's enough of a deal-breaker for you, there is an option to go back to Windows 7 as long as you're within the first 28 days of having upgraded -- instructions are at the bottom of the upgrading document.

Hello all, After updating the BIOS to version A16 or A17 doesn't work memory card reader :(
On the aforementioned version of the BIOS, when you want to turn on the computer with a memory card inside the system do not get up! Of course, without a memory card system will get up normally but when you again put the memory card the system still can't see it.
The last working version of BIOS is A15 where you can use a memory card reader.
My OS: Windows 10 Pro (x64)

I have a couple issues that are kind of similar. First, some specs:
Dell Dimesion 4400, P4 166 GHZ, WinXP Pro SP2, 768MB RAM.

1. When I plug my Digital Concepts 21-in-1 Card Reader into the USB port located on the front of my PC, I immediately see 4 new drives. no problem. However, when I leave it plugged in and reboot my PC, the PC freezes on a black screen. I have to unplug the card reader and then the boot sequence continues.

2. I just upgraded to a Dell SK-8125 USB keyboard. When I plug the Card Reader into the extra USB ports located on the keyboard, I do not see the new drives appear in My Computer. However, when I reboot the PC, it still locks up on a black screen until I unplug the Card Reader.


A:USB Ports & Card Reader

As far as 2 goes your keyboard does not have enough power to power the card reader, same thing like the keyboards of Mac. It is not strong enough to run any devices but it is suitable for transfer of data (say hooking up usb printer to keyboard).

As for 1, have you installed drivers?

I don't know how to go about fixing this. I tried looking for a driver but I couldn't find one for my system.

Please help as I would really like for it to work. I tried plugging in an SD card but it won't read it presumably due to the drivers. Although in Device Manager nothing is shown with the yellow question mark.

I have an idea, you may need a new driver for your card reader. I would go to the manufacturers website (if they have one) and see if they have a Windows 7 driver. You may also try unplugging the card reader (it's probably plugged into a USB port on the motherboard. Try a different one. You may also restart the computer if you have not tried that. Sometimes it will re-detect the hardware. Good luck.

Hi and welcome

to install drivers with inf files you need to go into search and type device manager. go to the card reader tab find the magic gate device. right click the file>properties>drivers>update driver> point to where the inf and other files are being stored

Check if you've received this card reader with an optical media (contains driver that needed to installed first on your computer). Try installing the driver first before connecting the card reader. Once the drive is installed, restart your PC and connect the reader back again.

I did a search (both here and google) for finding this problem but came up overwhelmed and empty. Too many key works I think.

I have an HP laptop dv 9000 series running vista home premium. At one point, about 6 months ago my 5 in 1 memory card reader recognized and would allow me to access my Sony Memory Stick PRO Duo 2GB, 4GB Mark2, and 8GB Mark2 memory cards via a Memory Stick Duo Adapter (MSAC-M2). Now when I try the same method, my computer won't even acknowledge that the card is in the reader. I have checked the HP website and my drivers are up to date. Furthermore, my memory card reader will recognize my SanDisk 2GB, and 4GB SDHC cards just fine.

I get no error message, and even checking in device manager I can't seem to find the sony mem stick at all, even as an unkown device.

Hey there! I've got a kodak 6 in 1 memory card reader. It's worked fine for a while now. About a week ago we dumped the hard drive, just due to a ton of viruses, etc...So that was said and done, and I re-installed the software for the reader. Before I just had to put my memory stick in and a windows prompt would pop up asking what I wanted to do...This time it didn't. I went to the drivers properties and changed it to prompt when I put it in, and it still didn't. I think I know how to get the pictures the other way, because I can access them...But does anyone know what I can do to get the windows prompt to pop up?

By the way, I'm running xp

A:memory card reader issue

From a Microsoft Answers thread:

1. Check if the device is getting detected in device manager. Follow the steps to go to device manager
i. Click Start, type devmgmt.msc and press enter.
ii. Search for the name of the device

If the device is not getting detected in device manager, then check if it is hidden device.
i. Click show hidden devices under View
ii. expand all the nods under device manager
iii. There would be many grayed out entries in device manager uninstall all the grayed out entries under all the nods and then restart the computer and plug the external device to the computer and check if it works

2. Install the latest drivers from the manufacturer website and even make sure the driver is compatible with the version of operating system installed on your computer. check if it works

Install the driver in Compatibility mode:

3. Check with any other another SD card if it is getting recognized or detected or you may even check if the same SD card is getting recognized or detected on other computer

I have a Dell Inspiron 1505 running Windows XP sp3. Machine is equipped with a 6 in 1 memory card reader. Recently, the device has required a restart of the machine after the media is inserted before the machine will recognize the media. Now it seems even this extra step has stopped working.

I have looked in the device manager, but am not certain which device is my card reader. I'm thinking a driver update is needed, but would appreciate any other suggestions.

I have a memory stick pro duo and someone stuck it in my computers card reader slot without using the adapter thingy to make it fit! :dead: (see example here)

The card has slid all the way to the back of the reader. I did try using a tweezer like most people used to solve their problem, but i bought 3 different sized tweezers and they don't fit because the card has went above the rail that you slide it in.
Any ideas on how to remove it?

If you don't understand what i mean, i can take a picture and attach it. Just ask.

I am planning on buying an external memory card reader/writer with hub. Should card readers generally be compliant with all three host controller interfaces--open, universal and enhanced? If not, would a computer compliant with only a universal controller work with a reader having one or other two interfaces--OHCI and EHCI? My computer has the universal controller.

If the card was accessed while removed, it's highly probable it got corrupted in the process. Safely Remove Hardware isn't really needed, unless you do just what happened or some malware accesses the card when you remove it... Like Vista.
Anyways. If you don't have a memory card reader, get one: and test if the card works in other systems. (Try finding a way to format it, if all else fails) If not, the card itself is now officially dead.

Good morning.

I am in the process of purchasing a digital camera, and I am trying to find a memory card reader for the following setup. I hope any one of you can help me.

I have a 4 pin firewire port on my 3 year old computer. Most, if not all, of the firewire card readers being sold have 6 pin connections. I can get a 6 to 4 adapter cable, but all of the card readers I have found get power from the bus on the computer through the 2 extra pins, and do not have a standalone power option.

So my question is this: Do any of you use a 6-pin firewire memory card reader with standalone power (AC adapter, batteries, the like)? FYI, I am using a Sandisk 1 GB CF II card.

This has been an incredibly hard piece of information to find out. Any help would be most appreciated.

When you say re-installed do you mean the software that came with the reader? It's easier without. XP should just recognise the reader as an extra drive in my computer when you plug it in without any software.
Is it recognised in 'my computer' when plugged in. It should be a 'removable disc' in my computer, or words to that effect.

I've owned this computer for less than a week and the SD card reader has been working fine until the most recent automatic update. Now it will not register that there is an SD card in it. I've tried multiple cards and none have worked while they have worked in other computers. Any insight on how to fix this problem?

I have Vista Ultimate x64. I have a flash card reader (part of my PC) that works just fine when I insert a card to be read (the first time around). After I, "safely remove hardware" and insert the same or different flash card to be read again, my PC doesn't recognize the freshly inserted flash card (the second time) until I reboot my PC.

Is there anything else I can do to get the flash card to be recognized the second time I insert it into my PC, instead of rebooting my PC? (I've tried "install new hardware" and having my computer scan for changes, with no luck)

Thanks in advance

A:have to restart for card reader to work again?

Hello 1basket, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Restarting Explorer instead may allow the device to be redetected without having to restart the computer.

You do not have to use the "safely remove hardware" feature as long as you make sure that you do not have anything being written to or copied from the flash card before removing it.

Hope this helps,

My laptop doesnt have a memory card reader so I bought a USB memory card reader to be able to read my camera photos. I bought a standard run of the mill no brand memory card reader, it works perfectly fine on my desktop, when plugged in, the folder would run and open.

On my laptop, nothing happens (my folder autoruns for my external harddrive), and it doesnt appear in 'My Computer', I know it has been assigned g: so i run g: and I get this error message:

The file does not have a program associated with performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel.

I dont know what association to change or do when I'm in the control panel! I would appreciate any help! I really dont want to buy another memory card reader hyuk! Thanks in advance!

I have a Dell XPS M1710 laptop. I recently installed windows 7 home premium 64bit. I can't seem to get my built in Ricoh 5 in 1 memory card reader to work. I installed the recommended driver using the dell drivers on their website. None of the drives are appearing under my computer, and nothing happens when I insert a memory card. I have tried several 1 and 2gb cards. Both high speed and regular with no success. I went to folder options and unchecked the box to hide empty drives in my computer. I am unable to locate anything under device manager for the Ricoh card reader.

A - I want it to display the empty drives in my computer
B - I want it to read my darn memory cards

Any ideas, I'm starting to think the reader itself may be defective. Please help me diagnose and hopefully fix this problem. Thanks!

Hello, i have 4 in 1 memory cards reader in my desktop pc.
It works ok, but it gives some warnings in event viewer.
I put error message links here:
These only come in boot. I have win 8.1 and all drivers installed.
How can i stop them from coming ?

A:Memory card reader warnings in event viewer.

If the card reader works OK, I would just ignore the Event Viewer warning messages.
Windows has several hundred Event Viewer logs and you'll make yourself crazy trying to fix every perceived error and warning message in them.
