W510: SD Card Reader Problems...

Hi folks,

 

If I boot with an SD Card in - works fine.

Remove card and put another card in - Nothing, exclamation mark in Device Manager.

Have to restart for it to work and repeat...

 

It was working fine...

I read a similar problem I think on here and I installed the latest driver however I am sure I already had it anyway as it was dated 2010.

 

Anyone any ideas?
It might just be the excuse I need to purchase a USB3 card reader however...

Hello alphaman,

Can you find out what driver version within your device manger? What OP system are you running on your device?

Hello alphaman,

 

Justin is correct in installing that driver for your card reader.

 

Weirdly enough sometimes you have to update the Power Manager Driver.  If you do not have power manager you can download it Here.  This actually surprised me as much as it works.

 

Try it out and let us know how it goes.

Hope this helps,

 

Alex

That's the same driver version I said I have installed.
Still no luck.

Windows 7 Professional.
