Q: 50-In-1 Memory Card Reader Not Working

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)'

Preferred Solution: 50-In-1 Memory Card Reader Not Working

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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 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
 

A:Memory Card Reader Not Working?

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

Hi, I have a Fujitsu Siemens Scaleo P, it has memory card input on the front..SD/MMC, CF, etc. Time to time they don't work, as in, I put the card in and nothing shows up on XP, and it doesn't show up on My Computer. Now, it's not working at all, it won't read my SD card or my CF card.

Are there any solutions?

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.

Windows 7 SP2 Intel desktop PC.
I have a weird 3? slot internal USB card reader problem.
All SD and mSD cards (last with adapter) are recognized normally as storage devices except one Sandisk Extreme Pro 8GB micro SD, which worked normally until 2 weeks ago but still works normally with other external USB card reader.
With internal USB reader all SD cards used to be drive L: and still are L:, except this Sandisk Pro.
When this Sandisk mSd card is inserted nothing happens and looks like Windows considers it as nothing or something else but not a storage device.
Nor computer storage manager doesn't see it in internal card reader.

But when I use external card reader, this Sandisk SD card works normally and is given a letter S:.

It looks like some kind registry numerator of USB devices has listed this SD card ID as not storage device.
Any ideas how to troubleshoot?

A:SD card stopped working in old reader while reader and card are OK

If it were in the registry as not a valid device, it wouldn't work from the external reader, either. I would check to make sure that you don't have dirty contacts in the internal reader. Sometimes dust can get in there and raise havoc, especially on some SD cards which have more active contacts than others. One dirty contact can make one card not work, while other, low density cards, will.

I have aLexmark memory card reader that I use with my memomry cards for my digital cameras. I just bought a new M 1G FujiFilm xD card. It said on the package that it is compatible with most cameras, and I didn't give it much thought since I have a Fuji camera.

Well, today I put the card in the reader and it won't read the card. Is there a way to chance properties of the reader so it can read it, or do I need a newer memory card reader because of the new "M" thing?

Hi,

I have a "SanDisk Ultra CompactFlash" 4GB card and an internal card reader (HP desktop). When I insert the card into the reader, the green light above the slot turns on as if it recognizes the device, but it doesn't show up. Device Manager says that the driver is installed and working properly, and I have uninstalled it, reinstalled it, and restarted my computer. A system restore isn't really an option because it isn't my computer.

Any idea how I can fix this? Could it matter that I'm not on the Admin account on the computer?

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?

a Driver, for my Memory Card Reader Driver, is available. When i view the message, the solution for this, is not available. When i go to, "Devices and Printer`s" on my computer, it shows me my computer, but it has a yellow
triangle, with like a black line running down the center of it. At the bottom of that page, where it says, "Status",
it says "Driver is not available".
Can anyone tell me what is going on, and how do i remedy this.
Thank you.
 

A:Memory Card Reader Driver.

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.

Good luck!!

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.

A:Friend having SD memory card reader issues

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: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...e=kingston_card_reader-_-20-134-753-_-Product 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.

Hi:

I have been using a compact flash media reader device that plugs into a USB port on my fairly new Dell - (with XP). When I insert the flash memory card with my photos, I have always had a menu pop up with choices of what I'd like to do with the photos...until just recently. Now, nothing at all. I recently installed WinDVD6 and Roxio...but otherwise no changes to the machine. I've tried the usual re-boot...and also unplugged the device...but the new hardware wizard does not acknowledge 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.

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.

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.

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 one of those add-in card multi-card readers that fits into a floppy drive bay and plugs directly to a terminal on the main board. I think it might be a Rosewill brand I got from Newegg.

If I go through the disconnect procedure to remove the card and want to reinsert any card later, I must reboot the computer before the card is recognized. Going into System and telling it to scan for hardware changes does no good, neither does View> Refresh in My Computer.

Any suggestions for a solution would be appreciated.

now I'M confused if I have always been doing this wrong.
I have always had multicard readers on my HP printers.

I use SD cards for the most part.

when I insert a card the "card present" light comes on--
when I'm done with the card--I just pull it out and put it back in to what
ever device I have it in.

there doesnt seem to be any errors or problems doing it this way.

I thought the only precaution you had to take was-- turn off the camera if
that's what you had the card in--before removing the card and make sure the
camera is turned off when you put the card back into the camera

but this is more protection for the camera then the card--

are you disabling the whole card reader when you use the disconnect hardware feature
to unplug a card

Hello, My memory card reader started acting out after 5 years of usage. It detects media all right, I can see the list of files, but when copying them, the LED is going off and on, and file transfer is extremely slow. I'd like to replace the card reader. Does anyone know what internal reader will fit into the desktop case of my hpe-560z? Can it be any 3.5'' media card reader, or there are some specific requirements to pay attention to? Thanks.

My new Laptop is coming soon. It has ? Windows 8 64bits
8GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
750GB 5400 rpm Hard Drive

Questions: Can I use Flash memory card instead of DVD's to make Recovery Factory image? If so, would 32 GB memory card suffice? Is flash card better than DVD...to keep. I learned from my google/internet research there are all sorts of flash cards. Is this the right flash card for what I intend to do?

Sorry I really do not know flash cards. ZERO. I notice from TV and movies, spies always insert what looks like this product to obtain classified information from PC when nobody is around....and they always seem to finish it just before the owner comes back....few seconds. One whole minute, tops.

A:W8 64bits and CF Compact Flash Memory Card reader 32GB

That is USB flash drive to be exact. But make sure to get at least USB 2.0 for better data transfer speed (3.0 is the best). I don't think there is an option for DVD image recovery back up anyway because the entire image is at least 12GB (dual Layer DVDs is only up to 8GB). But if your laptop has bluray burner, then it's possible. But yeah, you can use the USB flash drive with at least 16GB available storage space to create your recovery backup image.

Hi there,
I have a PC with windows xp service pack two running on a 64 athlon processor and two gb ram. The computer has two usb ports in the back that work. Two in the front that work and a 5 in 1 card reader in the front that has stopped working. The card reader has a little red light thats on which to me would indicate there is power running to it. I checked the device manager and it is not showing as being in the computer, The device manager only show the four usb ports that are working.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hey guys! I am currently on vacation and I don't have my home desktop with me so I am stuck using my old laptop. (model: HP Pavilion dv7-6c95dx Entertainment Notebook PC)

I haven't used this thing in several months and now that I am trying to use it to empty my SD cards from my camera onto the computer. When I put the SD card into the slot on my laptop it is not recognizing the cards... I have two different ones that I am using that are working perfectly fine in my camera. I tried them in the hotel computer and it recognized them so I know it's not the cards... I have also used these types of cards in this laptop before I built my own rig.

Anyways, do you guys have any solutions?

Hi all I was refered here by a monitor in the malware/virus removal section. About 2 weeks ago out of the blue my computers built in all-in one card reader stopped working. When I put a memory card in nothing happens. When I go to my computer there are no drives for the card reader slots. I checked device manager and there are no related warnings and according to device manager everything appears to be working. I recently had to remove some malware so I'm sure its related to why the card reader no longer works.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I have no idea if this is the right place to post this.

Card Reader not working.

Dell XPS 410
with built in card reader

Windows 7 Upgrade over Vista Home Premium.

I think the card reader did work after upgrade but now I can't remember. I don't use it that much.

Problem:

The card reader does not recognize my SD photo cards. I tried multiple cards. The cards DO work on my XP computer.

I also have a USB card reader that I use on my XP computer. That works fine on my XP computer. But the Dell XPS 410 with Windows 7 does not recognize this either.

But back to my Dell XPS 410 with Windows 7 Upgrade:

Built in card reader does not recognize any SD cards.
And I have an external SD USB card reader AND the XPS 410 does not recognize that either.

Any suggestions is appreciated.

Try reinstalling the Realtek SD card reader driver. You can do that via the recovery manager. It would have helped a bit if you had posted the installed operating system.

I dont know why it is not reading, Last time i used it was a couple months ago and everything worked fine. Now all of a sudden today it isnt working. Ive been reading a lot on how it could be a windows 7 update or my drivers are installed wrong.. (sorry i cant really remember exactly what it said). Also my computer wont read my usb for my digital camera but works fine for my ipod and everything else! ANDD my cd drive isnt working... any ideas on why?

A:SD card reader not working

I couldn't find the Mfg for the card reader...but it could be uninstalled from the "Programs& Features", aswell you should uninstall the drivers from the "Devices Manager".
When no card SD inserted, it doesn't appear in the devices manager, therefore you'll have to follow that tutorial: Hidden Devices and add:
-DEVMGR_SHOW_DETAILS and set to value 1
-DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES and set to value 1...

Reinstall the card reader drivers from your Manufacturer AsusTek.

For your Camera it might be just to enable in it the USB Connection only?

Does the CD Drive appear in Computer?
