Card Reader Stopped Working After Windows 7 Install

Hi all-I have an older HP Pavilion zt3349cl that just keeps going. I installed Windows 7 on it and now when I put a sd card in the reader(built in) it wants to try and format the card-the card has pics on it. Card will work fine in another computer. Any ideas?

Have you went to HP's website to see if there is an updated driver?

Hi all. Thanks for all the help. I finely got around to trying the advice given here. What worked is uninstall the drivers for the card reader so that the reader did not show up at all. I had gathered a few different drivers for the card reader in a folder. I put a SD card in the reader and restarted the computer. When it found the card it looked for drivers to install so I pointed it to the folder with the different drivers and it chose a Winbond SD drivers, installed them and all is working great now. Again thanks for all the help.
