help! sd card reader problem

im using w510, which share the same card reder with T series and i'm using win7 64 bit system. the SD card reader doesn't work properly.

when i insert the 8GB SDHC card, somtimes it can be recognized, sometimes cannot, actually , it;s really random.

at first, i thought it's a hardware problem of the card reader itself, maybe poor contact...but later on i found, if i restart the system or just close the cover to make the windows sleep and open, the card will be recognized, so i think it should be of software problem i have updated the driver to the latest version, but it still keep's really weird...

does anyone have the similar case?

i really appreciate who will give me some idea.

Re: help! sd card reader problem

There's a Windows Update that I think is relevant to SDHC cards larger than 4GB. It should show up in System Update or under Windows Update in the Recommended list.

W520: i7-2720QM, Q2000M at 1080/688/1376, 21GB RAM, 500GB + 750GB HDD, FHD screen
X61T: L7500, 3GB RAM, 500GB HDD, XGA screen, Ultrabase
Y3P: 5Y70, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, QHD+ screen
