Windows 7: Ricoh 5 in 1 Card Reader

13 May 2010   #1

Windows 7 64bit
Ricoh 5 in 1 Card Reader

I've been trying multiple SD Cards, so far none of them worked. The same thing happens every time. After I insert a card into the slot, the light flashes a few times and on My Computer the card becomes the (F:). I double click on it and it tells me I need to format it before I can use it. If I press Cancel it says "F:\ is not accessible. The volume does not contain a recognized file system. Please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted." When I press Format Disk it says "Windows was unable to complete the format." I even brought a new card to make sure. This happened after I upgraded to Windows 7, and I've made sure all of my drivers are up to date after it. My computer is an HP dv9000z running Windows 7 64bit.

Hate to be discouraging, but I've spent a lot of time the last few weeks trying to "upgrade" some HP systems to Windows 7 -- and in ALL instances, the memory card readers no longer work. This is across four different HP machines, each a different model. In all cases, I had to revert to an after-market card reader that included drivers that DID work.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Well, according to HP website, there is no support for that device with an OS of 7 64 bit. Have you tried the Vista 64 bit driver and see if that would work?
