New try - 201X 5-1 media card reader isn't recognizing SDHC - Help!

2012-06-08, 0:47 AM
I am trying to get it to read a 16g SDHC card, and nothing happens.  I go to device drivers in Control Panel, the media reader isn't listed.   I see no-one else having this problem.   I go to Lenovo's drivers and all I find is integrated camera and media reader but the update is only for the integrated camera.  
 
Is this the first time you are using the card reader in your ThinkPad?   >Ostensibly Yes>

Under your bios menu, under security for I/O, is your card reader disabled?  >How do I go about this?
I was also told that under drives in device drivers it should be listed and it is not listed.  
 
Many thanks for any help.

I did as you said and went to the bios menu.  The 5-1 media reader isn't listed in security.  And everythng there is enabled.  Help.

maybe try to reinstall the OS, and see whether the card reader is detected. if not then you may want to seek warranty? (if you have warranty left).
