Windows 7: Sony VAIO Card Reader Drivers

Sony VAIO Card Reader Drivers

Hi All,

I just did a full strip and install of Windows7 onto my Sony VAIO laptop (VGN-FZ27G).
It is now running amazingly faster than before (as i only installed the basic drivers i need and ignored most of the proprietary Sony additional software).

My only issue is i cannot get the integrated SD Card/Memory stick reader to work. It comes up on Device Manager as a Mass Storage Controller, but no driver i can find for it works, even from the Sony websites.

Please help!!

Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit / XP Home sp3

Welcome to SevenForums. You'll need to go to the Sony site and look up your model number>driver downloads and look for the card reader drivers should either be a Ricoh or Texas Instruments reader.

The Sony site refers you to China for support.Sony eSupport - Electronics So lets try this.
Go to device manager>right click on the device>properties>details tab>drop down menu>hardware id> Copy and Paste the hardware id string and we can find a driver that way. Please also let us know if your using 32 or 64bit Seven.

I personally don't recommend Third Party Driver apps. You should always go directly to the manufacturers site for your drivers.
@Zeplash nothing personal.
Thanks Fabe

VGN-SZ430N - Windows 7 Driver Update for Mass Storage

Hey Guys/Gals,

I have run into a little problem with trying to find a Windows 7 driver update for mass storage. I upgraded to Windows 7 and now my mass storage cannot be found. I have tried using the option of they have available for updating itself, but comes back saying driver cannot be found.

So I have Model: VGN-SZ430N --- Windows 7 (64 bit) ---

I have been to the Sony Website and put in my information about my model and then could not find any update for the driver on mass storage -- maybe im not looking under the correct one -- maybe someone can help me?

Anyhow i have found what Fabe posted (#3 Permalink) by listing my Hardware IDS -- hopefully someone can help me out --- would be much appreciated!

I don't understand any of the above --- hopefully someone will be able to help me on this one!
