I have Windows 7 and my SD/mini-MMC/RS (card reader) won’t read data. the computer recognizes it but it won’t show info. It just says “Please insert a disk into SD/mini-MMC/RS (E).” Is it dead or can it be fixed?

If you mean format the card, I should have mentioned that it is any SD card I put in it. I always have a work around by using a card reader adapter to a USB port but it would be nice to have the card read in the PC back.

Possibly reinstall the Card Reader Driver. What is the make and model of the computer? Do you see a yellow exclamation mark in Device Manager? Your Card Reader would be listed under Disk Drives in Device Manager. Right Click it and select Properties. Under the Details tab select Hardware IDs in the dropdown box. Copy and post the first line.

There are no yellow exclamation marks showing. I did select 'Update Driver' then 'Search automatically for updated software driver software'. It came back saying 'Windows has determine that the driver software for your device is up to date'.

 

Computer is Dell Inspiron 580

Processor Intel® Core™ i3 CPU  550 @3.20GHz  3.20GHz

System Type: 64-bit Operating System

 

These are my Disk Drives

First line for Hardware IDs:

USBSTOR\DiskGeneric-SD/MMC__________1.00

I thought I could pull something from the Vendor and Device ID but could not. I am not sure what chipset your card reader is using. It may be realtek but I can't say for sure. I also looked on the Dell support site for the 580 but no card reader was offered. 

 

The Dell has a service tag on the side. You can go to Dell's support site and input your service tag number. This should bring up a list of drivers for your computer.

I have run through that as well with same results. I did run a diagnostic test on the drive. It said it passed once and ran it again and it said it failed. I can live with the way it is I guess. I have for 2 years. Thanks for trying. I do appreciate it.

No problem, sorry I could not get your Card Reader to detect any card.
