W540 Card Reader not working

Hi!

 

 I've a new Thinkpad W540 with Windows 7 64bit. I can't see the Card Reader in the device list. When I insert a SD Card, nothing happens. All I/Os are enabled in the Bios. What can I do? Pls help!

 

Thx

Re: W540 Card Reader not working

Try installing one of these packages:
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS038432
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS039073

One of these should be for your system. The other should complain at install.

Thx! It works! The O2micro was the right driver.
