W540 Card Reader does not


I have a new Thinkpad W540 with Windows 7 64 bit. I don't see the card reader in the list of devices. When I insert an SD card, nothing happens. All e/s are enabled in the Bios. What can I do? Pls help!




Try to install one of these packages:

One of them should be for your system. The other should complain to install.

  • Tecra 9000: SD card reader does not work with XP

    I've made some progress on this issue, it seems that Cardbus devices cannot share IRQS, although the main problem is that FFDFB200-FFDFB3FF memory address is shared by the SD card controller and device memory SD card. Unless we find a way to edit the registry to resolve this conflict of memory, the simple answer is that the SD card reader does not work under XP.

    I think that it would take a major surgery of the register or re-writing of drivers to move the address of memory used by the SD card device, I always work on this for now.

    Can someone support Toshiba or Toshiba Marketing explain to me why my Tecra T9100 has a "Designed for Windows XP and Windows 2000" sticker on it, when Toshiba does fully support XP on the 9000 series?

    Hi David

    Unfortunately, I n t think that you will find here a Toshiba marketing person or other departments. It is ONLY a user to user forum.

    What you say, it is simply NOT true.

    The Tecra 9000 was delivered with 3 different OS.
    It was delivered with Windows XP Pro, W2k and Win98. You can order all the images of this Toshiba home Toshiba service partner. That's why Tecra 9000 does support Windows XP!
    Tecra 9100 has been bundled with Windows XP and Windows 2000 and also supports Windows XP!

    Of course, there are different models with a different hardware configuration, but all supports Windows XP.

    I put t know why you get this error message or why you cannot use the SD card, but I guess you don t use the image of Toshiba. That's why you installed your operating system isn't properly. Because you are a newbie you don t know the Toshiba all the driver installation must be done in the right order and all Microsoft QFEs must be installed also.

    As you can see you must pay attention to many important things if you want to manually install the operating system.

    Good day

  • TS15g067cl laptop: memory card reader does not recognize the card

    The card reader does not recognize the cards.  It does not have a drive location (example: f drive).   This makes it impossible to veiw the files or photos on any (I tried six different) of my SanDisk SD cards.  I can't find anywhere to downlod corrected card rhe read updates update drivers or BIOS for my system.   I just bought this computer 1 week ago and do not understand why I read in the forums about driver issues of card reader for the last year.  Windows 8.1 has been out for some time.  Why HP would sell these computers without updating the software to make them work as they should?

    Thanks for the info.  Disk management does not show the drive.  The problem was resolved after reloading BIOS, as suggested in another post.

  • Satellite C850-B635 and Win7 - card reader does not work

    My laptop came with windows 8 and the card reader was not working
    but I installed windows 7 64-bit, downloaded all the drivers on my laptop, but the card reader does not work now.

    I downloaded a driver called card reader controller, but it did not work as well
    I don't know if there is a problem or there is a driver should I install and I don't know.
    Please help me solve this problem.

    In my windows Device Manager, these devices is not recognized:
    * PCI simple communication controller
    * SM Bus controller
    * Unknown Device

    I tried searching in my page to download drivers on the Toshiba Web site but could not find these
    Please help me make my card reader works again.

    Post edited by: domaking

    For me, the matter is simple, and the reason why the SD card reader is not working, it's just a driver compatible isn't installed.
    My theory seems to be correct, given that the SM bus controller and PCI simple communication controller appear in Device Manager and I suppose that one of these devices belongs to the player/controller of the SD card.

    I think that you should simply install this Realtek card reader controller that I found on the page of the Toshiba UE driver

    In addition, you must install all the other drivers Win 7 as well as Toshiba tools available by Satellite C850 series.

    Very important is the chipset driver, USB 3.0 driver (Win 7 has this port driver to control the USB 3.0), display driver. etc.

    Not very essential tools are Bulletin Board, product information online Reeltime, etc. This tools additional don t improved the performance of the laptop so its up to you if you want to use these software components

  • TouchSmart HP Envy 15-J104sa memory card reader does not

    I took delivery of a HP Touchsmart from Envy 15 - J104sa, running Windows 8.1 this week and the internal memory card reader does not work. It does not recognize SD cards (I tried more than one) and continues as if nothing has been inserted; Don't display an error message. The cards work on my previous HP laptop. The only way to get the laptop to show an inserted SD card is to run the driver software update (http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp63001-63500/sp63415.exe) whenever an SD card is inserted; This must be done with the card in the reader. If the software is running and then the card nothing happens. If the card is ejected and then re-inserted (or a new card inserted) it is not recognized and the process must be restarted and the driver reinstalled even though nothing has changed.

    Can someone please help me with this question or I'll have to go back to the HP laptop. I do a lot of photography so being able to read fast and reliable SD card is extremely important for me; It is not a problem, I was expecting a new laptop all right out of the box.

    Thanks to you all.

    Unfortunately not, updates of driver solves the problem, but an update of the BIOS through the HP helper application seems to have resolved the issue. While I appreciate there were not specific drivers available in my opinion, it is difficult to accept that HP should be able to release a model where they know the equipment are not fully supported by the operating system and in this case does not work.

  • Envy 15 t-j100 card reader does not

    I have a HP ENVY 15 t-j100 Quad Edition running Windows 7. His card reader does not work. When I insert an SD card, I get a message that the device is not installed correctly. Windows prompts you to update me the driver, so I let him, but he can't find the driver. In devices with SD card inserted, Manager it shows a symbol in the "Other devices" section "hard drive"with a yellow "!"  The State of the device reads:

    "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)

    To find a driver for this device, click Update driver. »

    I tried to update the driver from there, but still no driver is reported to be found.

    Furthermore, Device Manager indicates that the Realtek PCIE card reader works properly. I updated the driver using sp66065.exe, but there is no difference. The card reader is still not read, nor is it a drive letter appear to the inserted card.

    If I disable the Realtek PCIE card reader, then the "other devices" "Hard drive" in the Device Manager goes. But the card reader does not work as long. If I activate the card reader, the same error comes back with a yellow '! ' under 'other devices' "Hard drive" in the Device Manager.

    Could you please tell me how to resolve this situation? Thank you in advance!


    You are the very welcome!

    Oh... It's big, happy that the problem was solved after recovery

    It would very probably be updates of Windows.

    Try to create a system restore manually each time before performing any installation of update or something important. You can restore to a previous restore points you have created, if a problem occurs after an update.

    You can also create a shortcut to a button in your office so that you can easily create manual restore - Option 1 point in the following tutorial:

    System Restore: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/700-system-restore.html

    I would also change the Windows Manual Automatic Update settings.
    This must be done in the HP support assistant program too - its control panel.

    I hope this helps.

    Have a good weekend
    God bless you.
