SD Card Reader

I have a Lenovo 3000 9690 A.  I totally understand that  this PC is just about obsolete but when the hard drive went out a couple of months ago, I bought a larger drive and re-installed my Vista OS.  I know what everyone is thinking but I loved this PC.

 

Anyway, I just discovered that my SD card readers are not working for some reason and can't figure out why.

 

Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be and what I can do to get the SD readers to function again?

 

I would be really appreciative of any help someone could provide.

 

Thanks.

Re: SD Card Reader

are you sure that you had re-installed the drivers for your sd card reader after reinstalling windows?

Re: SD Card Reader

Not really sure.  Just know that I had about 7 Recovery Discs that I had to use to recover my system to its original state.

 

Wouldn't the drivers that were there in the beginning be on those discs?

Re: SD Card Reader

hmmmm, well, just in case, heres a link to the latest drivers (at least they should be, not 100% sure):

 

hmmmm, im guessing your model is from the 3000 C series, as you didnt specify which 3000 seriers, and there's like, 50 million of them(not really, just exaggerating)

 

 

ok, cant find it, can you give your specific model number?

I hope this help.  If there are drivers I have no idea where to go to get them since I have no idea who made the sd drives.

 

Thanks.

Re: SD Card Reader

hmmmm, there doesnt seem to be a drive listed for the sd card reader on that model, sorry, i dont know what else could be the problem, unless you somehow hit the cable connecting it to your motherboard while adding your new hdd, there could be a number of problems

Re: SD Card Reader

Thanks for trying.

 

There's no big need for me to use the drives.  I will just pull the photos from my camera to my hard drive and forget about it.

 

Appreciate your help.
