T430s, device without driver, wrong driver selection or other problem

2012-08-18, 23:23 PM

Hi all,


I've got the problem that under device manager there's a device without driver and is thus shown with a yellow exclamation mark.

Vendor ID is 1180, device ID is E822, so it seems to be the

Ricoh PCIe SD/MMC Host Controller.


But if I download the "Media Card Reader Driver for Windows 7" from the Lenovo website and install it, the device still doesn't have a driver. The smartcard reader driver also doesn't help. An automatic search of Windows doesn't find a driver.


My system is: Lenovo notebook T430s, Windows 7 (64bit), model number 2356GDG.


Can anyone post a screenshot of the device manager with all devices listed, so that I can verify that this is the missing device?


Any suggestions?

Thanks a lot, babidoo

Hi there babidoo,


Was this the driver you downloaded? Media Card Reader Driver for Windows 7


It was updated August 13th so it's really new. I would also run TVT System Update as well.




*Edit* Also try updating this driver: SmartCard Reader Driver for Windows 7


TVT System Update should automatically update both of these for you but you can also just update them specifically by visiting those links.
