New T430s - 4 in 1 express card SD-reader - missing driver

2012-07-11, 0:38 AM

Received my new T430s yesterday - upgraded the RAM, and installed an SSD.  I ended up installing 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate and got all the drivers installed no problem - except for the 4 in 1 reader.  

 

There are no drivers specifically for the card on the support site, and when I called support, they said they could not help because I'm not using the standard image (they also said that ultimate isn't compatible with the drivers, but that just makes no sense to me).

 

I stupidly formatted the original drive to use in an external case, so i don't have the original build (support is sending a recovery cd, so I guess I can get it back), but wondering if anyone has the drivers?  I may end up just buying a different express card reader - but that seems kind of ridiculous considering i paid for the one that came with the machine.

 

Thanks for any help!

Although it says it only supports T420s, it works fine as I have tested it.

Without the Lenovo image you're going to hear that most time you call if something does not work.

Order the rebuild DVD's is your only option now. You'll need it as for the drivers I could not say but they should know. I'd say call again a see if you get someone else who know because they should regardless.

Hello,

Anyone knows some other solution?

Cuz in my case i did not worked...

It seems that SD cards (like 4GB) works but SDHC not...

 

My cards are SandDisk microSDHC 16GB & 64GB (via microSD-to-SD adapter) and they works fine in every other laptop I've tested...

 

OS: Windows 7 Prof x64
