Media card reader on W500 and SDHC cards

2010-01-14, 23:48 PM

My card reader doesn't seem to be able to read the high capacity SD cards.  I had a similar issue on a desktop but was able to get a firmware upgrade which solved it.  Has anyone solved this yet?

The media card reader in my W500 reads the high capacity SD cards just fine.

 

Perhaps check the Lenovo drivers website (W500 Driver Downloads) to make sure you have the latest driver.  The media card reader driver has the word 'Ricoh' in it.

Thanks for the reply.  I previously installed the latest Ricoh Multi Card Reader driver v3.54.02 per the site you referenced.  I can read regular SD cards,   SDHC cards show up as a drive in Windows Explorer, however, when selected, I get the message 'Please insert a disk into drive....'.

Just to help others that might search in vain,

 

Elsewhere on the lenovo forum someone pointed out a solution that worked for me. As noted there, although lenovo was addressing a problem with R61 and T61, it works for more recent product such as the W500.
