Lenovo Z70-80 sd card reader problem

2016-08-14, 11:49 AM

Hello. I got brand new Lenovo Z70-80 yesterday.  Today I installed Windows 10 Pro, and seems to everuthing runs just fine. Great laptop, beautifull display... Then I tried SD card reader. I hear the connect sound, it shows me SD card, i can open it, copy files, use it normal. But at some random moments it just unmounts it self, and then quickly mount it back. It takes a second to mount back sd card. Unmount and mount sound can be heard. I dont need to mount it manualy, no need to take off sd card.


Under device manager:

USB Controllers: Realtek USB 2.0 Card Reader, Driver date 12/21/2015, Driver Version 10.0.10586.31222


When I mount sd card, it shows me SDHC card under Disk Drivers in device manager. Driver date 6/21/2006, Driver version 10.0.10586.0


I tried reinstaling card driver, but no luck.I also tried to move a little sd card when its in sd card slot, to see if it looses contact, but its not loosing it.


Any suggestions?

Sounds like you blew the Lenovo installation away to put Pro version on. You are likely missing various driver and other Lenovo software. Go through the download list and install each one thats listed for Windows 10. If it still don't work tech support should be able to fix it for you. Once too much time has passed they only adress hardware and not software issues.
