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 laptop is vaio type N vgn-nr72b. I cant find any sd card reader os is windows 7 home premium 64 bit.

A:my built in sd card reader wont work

Hello Kastiel26

Everything I find for that particular model is in Japanese, VGN-NR72B | ????????? | ??????? | VAIO | ????? If your understanding of Japanese is as good as mine I suggest trying similar model numbers ie. Sony eSupport - VGN-NR110E - Software Updates & Drivers and seeing if the card reader download will work for you.

Ok long and confusing story I'm posting this all because I'm not sure what triggered the problem I have a HP workstation with USB ports in the back in the front and an internal memory card reader that also has a single USB port Windows pro -bit I tried plugging in a new external HD to a USB port in the back of the machine Nothing happened and it didn't show up in My Computer same thing with one of the front USB ports I thought it might be a problem with the HD so I went into disk management but it got stuck in quot Connecting to virtual disk service quot with nothing showing up not even internal HD's I unplugged the new HD and now got into disk management fine tried plugging it in again - nothing I went into to device manager and noticed there was an unknown USB device with a stop error I figured I'd remove the device and let Windows re-detect ports card with USB built-in Problem reader memory and it not sure if this was smart Then I plugged the new HD again and now it finally showed up Now it works through any USB port including the one on the card reader However Problem with built-in memory card reader and USB ports now I can no longer read memory cards with it I also noticed that the small LED on the reader stays lit even if there is nothing plugged in I recall it should be lit only when something is connected I looked in device manager again and again Problem with built-in memory card reader and USB ports I have an unknown device under USB drivers with an error code but I have no idea if its the card-reader or what Is there a way to reinstall the reader or could it be broken it worked fine this morning and the USB port on it still functions I have no idea how to find a driver for it as it came with the machine and at least HP's support page doesn't seem to have a driver for any card reader for this particular PC model

A:Problem with built-in memory card reader and USB ports

Yes you sure can...go to HP's support website, dirver/downloads and input your make and model, OS type (32 or 64 bit) then drivers and download the latest card reader driver.

Try use the AC Adapter connect to the notebook.

Remove all other USB Device and Only the card Reader..

and Test... Sometime when you plug in the card reader it use the power from the notebook.... . if the current the USB provide is unstable or lower ... then this kind of issue may happen..

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 also have uniblue driverscanner which has located no missing drivers etc. WHAT DO I DO, PLEASE HELP ME.


A:Built in card reader not working

Most built in card readers are USB devices, I suggest powering down the PC, disconnect the power cord, then hold the power button in for 15 seconds, open the case and trace the data cable from the card reader to the motherboard and uplug it from the motherboard, close the case, plug in and start the PC up, once into windows for a few minutes, shut down and follow the procedure again, this time plug the cable back in to the motherboard, close the case and start up again, see if windows finds the device automatically once the desktop loads.

Did you install a floppy drive? That would enable you to do a basic test with the hard drive disconnected and a boot to a floppy disc.
The pop/crackle could just be the monitor receiving power.

I have a Memory card reader and on the windows explorer it shows all the card slots as drives.

Is it possible for it to only show the slot that has media in (dare I say, like a mac)?

The same with my optical drives, is it possible to 'hide' them only showing when they have mounted a an item of optical media?

Or is this just pipe dreams, and only the preserve of unix based systems?

I have no idea when this stopped working, but i noticed it yesterday when i went to use it.
The device manager detects a 'unknown device' in the USB controllers list and gives this report 'Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)'

The first thing I'd try is updating that particular driver. If no help, I'd delete the driver and let windows discover the device again.

I have a Fujifilm 3800 camera and a DPC-R1 card reader, also made my fujifilm.
The camera has a 128 MB card in it. I successfully installed the card reader and it shows in Device manager. I install the mem card and click on the drive, but am prompted to insert the disk. The card is good since it shows all the pics I took this weekend but I can't get the reader to recognize the card.

Im running XP Pro SP2 and am not aware of a more recent driver for the reader since a websearch turned up nothing.

Any ideas on this problem? I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling with no results.

Thanks in advance.

Have a look on Google.

Many users also report that this card will not work with XP, even though Fuji state that it does.

Some do report it works OK, so its probably conflicting with something on some systems - but what...?.

I have a Gateway ML6732 running Windows Vista and recently my memory card reader won't recognize anything. It used to work beautifully, and I don't know what's wrong with it now. Does anybody know what drivers would be associated with it? I've checked my device manager and I have a yellow exclamation mark next to my SCSI/RAID Host Controller. I don't know if that has anything to do with my memory card reader, but I can't find an update anywhere. If anyone has any suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Right click the yellow exclamation mark and update your drivers if the device manager is unable to update drivers which is not often . Then you can go to your own computers website and download all drivers needed put in make,model number and operating system of your computer

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 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 recently installed Windows 8.1 on my HP Pavilion p6130y desktop PC. Everything works great except Windows can't find and install the 15-in-1 memory card reader device. I know the device is connected to the mother board because the light in the card reader comes on when I insert a memory card, but nothing shows up Windows Explorer. Also, I can't find a driver specifically for the card reader on HP's website. Please help, and Thanks!

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 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.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

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.

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?

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.

But when I click on it it says "Please insert the removable drive E)" or it freezes my computer. I even tried it on a laptop and it doesn't want to open up.

Hi and welcome. As with anything else, sometimes they go bad. Check to see if it's still under warranty.

When I insert a memory card (SD & CF) in the reader of my new Dell Vista PC the "Autoplay" window does not appear. However, the media reader can be accessed in My Computer (and it works), just no Autoplay. Autoplay does work for other devices on my system (DVD, USB disk) but not the reader. I have tried another memory card reader with the same result. Also, I do know that the Autoplay config in Control Panel is configured correct.

Any guidance would be appreciated. This is driving me crazy!

I want to reinstall the driver for my SD memory card reader. If I uninstall it, will it automaticly reinstall itself after I uninstall it?

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.

Thank you.
