Another ? if I may...

 

I just found that my SD reader is not working since W-10 upgrade. Somehow, I did manage to get it to find and even open to get files. Mind you, ("Once only"). It works every time on another pc.I have read several tutorials and fixes for this, but also read that W-10 is not ready to update that option. Guess I am at a loss to do anything more on my own. As always any and all advice will be greatly appreciated....Thanks...jim

I gather you're talking about an external card reader device.

 

I have seen the sort of behavior you're describing with these (and I've owned a few of them) on machines running pre-10 versions of Windows.  This has always been with external readers that I've been using for some period of time.  Given how inexpensive they are, I've always simply purchased a replacement unit and that's always been the solution to the problem.  There seems to be a subset of USB devices that like to behave erratically as they age, and card readers and USB hubs fall into that grouping.

Thanks for your reply...That makes complete sense to me being that it did work at least once. """The readers are HP factory installed with the PC."" I will try an external card reader as suggested and see what happens....Thank you sir,,,Much appreciated...Jim
