Windows 7 Ultimate
Card Reader Display Issues

It seems Win 7 turns off the display of empty card readers. If you want to see them go to control panel / folder options. Click view and click 'Show hidden files, folders and drives'. This will then display your card drives.

Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit / XP Home sp3

Welcome to seven forums lm303: If you would please post the model # of your Studio XPS also the version of seven 32 or 64 bit. This will make it easier to find a driver. Also if the card reader shows up in device manager you can click on it>properties>details tab> drop down menu>hardware id. copy and paste the code. This Will also help identify the maker of the card reader. It's most likely a Ricoh or Texas instuments and a driver from somewhere else might work. Thanks.

Windows 7 x86 Ultimate

I thank you for this thread. I dont have a problem with a laptop but with my desktop. I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 86 yesterday and all my Generic USB CF, MS, SD and SM card reader slots are showing up greyed out. I didnt have this problem in Vista 32. I have a two-year old HP Pavilion V Series desktop and have been over to HP's site here in Japan but they do not provide any support for Windows 7 - or at least for my specific PC. Can anybody please suggest a solution to my problem? I have tried inserting my SD cards but like you others, it wont read them. I have followed up in the Device Manager and there doesnt seem to be any problem there.

Thanking you.

Does an SD Card Reader need the Realtek 2.0 Card Reader Driver?
Hello, I have a question about SD Card Readers. I have one where you insert the SD Card, and plug in a USB cable to connect it to the computer. Does the SD Card use a USB Root Hub to connect, or does it use the Realtek 2.0 Card Reader? My real question is, if I had accidentally uninstalled my...
