Hi there, Eid –

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

The SD should show up in device manager as a SD host controller.

Do you have a smart card reader?

Also, try updating the chipset

 

Update us how it goes.      

 

 

 

    

Regards,

I have the same issue with my ideapad Y700.  The SD card reader previously functioned and then one day it stopped.  There is no SD Host Controller showing up in device manager.  My USB ports work and I'm currently using a USB to SD adaptor just to get my images on the PC.  I have updated Windows 10 and have the most recent BIOS

Please help! I am having the exact same problem.
Just a couple of days ago it would read 2 out if 3 SD cards (some yes some no) and now it wont recognize any! I updated the chipset, restarted my computer, it just wont recognize any SD cards...

I am still having this problem, after I updated the BIOS. Are there any updates on what causes this?

I had this issue and found that the sd card reader portion on the inside had become dislodged. I opened the back and pit it back where it was supposed to be and now it works fine.
