I've tried putting in an SDHC card in my laptop but it doesn't show up.  Looked at Device Manager and there isn't even anything showing up.  I tried installing the drivers provided on the support site but it still isn't working.  What can be done?



(1) Confirm whether the hardware is detected and the device driver loaded by checking in  the device manager


(2) If not shown, or if there is a yellow (!) bang next to the hardware, try to download and  install the Ricoh card reader driver (v2.14.18.01) or later from the support site.  


(3) If the manual driver update fails, try running TVSU (ThinkVantage System Update) - this utilitiy is located in the ThinkVantage directory.

Hi there, I am having the same problem, Ricoh SD card read is NOT WORKING anymore on X220 with Windows & pro 64bits, but is working on Fedora 21 on the same machine, which proves that is something from Windows and Ricoh driver... Any solution for this? Thanks.
