Re: cannot access card reader Z61t in Windows 7

Hi,

I am having trouble with z61t running windows xp pro. Sd card reader will not read a 32gb card. Others cards read ok. Reads fine on my z60m.Do you know if the fix you mention (the .exe file) will work for me. I am hesitant to try in case something goes wrong.

Cheers

Mark

Hi Mark and welcome to the forum!

 

Since you're using XP therefore you need this hotfix from MS:- http://support.microsoft.com/kb/934428

 

Hope this helps.

Re: cannot access card reader Z61t in Windows 7

From memory, the Z60m uses a different card reader to the other Z series Thinkpads.

My Z61t could only read 16 gigs SD cards, i couldn't get it to work with 32 gigs SD regardless of the OS. I think it is just a hardware limitation of the Z61t, it doesn't support that card size.

 

I remembered the Z60m were the only Z6x series to use a Ricoh controller, the other Z60 machines all had the Texas Instrument Controller. The T61 and R61 from memory all had the Ricoh controller.
