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,

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.
