Check that Smart Card Service under Services and Applications is turned on. Right clk My Computer > Manage > Services and Applications > Services. Scroll down to Smart Card and check your Startup Type. If it is disabled, right clk Smart Card > Properties, then drop down list of Startup Type to Automatic. You will also have the option to start the service. Restart your computer, and see if it can read your cards now. Hope this works for you.

OK, how about this... Right clk My Computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager. Find your device and right clk on its Properties. See if the device is working properly. If not, click Troubleshoot and follow the directions.

When i installed a second internal hard drive, it worked for a while, then "disappeared" as an icon. The drive did not work and I couldn't find it. Upon opening the computer case, I noticed the cable was loose. When I plugged it back in, it worked. Have you checked that the cables are connected? Good luck!

The removable drives will not be listed until the computer recognizes the card reader. remove the device, reinsert, go to the device manager, right click and scan for new devices.

The SD card or reader may have gone bad. Do you have another to test with?

This is a problem I've run into. If you used the "safely remove hardware" before pulling the smart card, it's possible that the hardware it removed is the entire card reader. What you have to do is open the case, find the wires from the card reader, unplug it, and then replug it and Windows will recognize it again. This problem is not something I've seen documented somewhere, oddly enough. The "safely remove hardware" thing works great with individual USB ports and so on, but can't differentiate individual cards in the reader.

Probably the best way to do this is to pull the plug from the device (and it would be nice if it was a single plug because if it's individual plugs you have to get them back exactly right!), start the machine back up, shut down again, plug it back in, restart again. Unplug the power cord from the back of the machine while reaching into the case.

Wait what do you mean Herk?
Do you want me to turn shut down my computer, and pull out the power plug.. and start it back again?

I believe that he's talking about the plug in the motherboard where the card reader plugs into.

-Shutdown the computer, unplug it from the wall, and hold the metal of the case.
-While holding the metal of the case, remove the plug from the card reader at the motherboard.
-Reboot the computer to get rid of the traces of the device.
-Shutdown the computer, unplug it from the wall, and hold the metal of the case.
-While holding the metal of the case, reinsert the plug from the card reader at the motherboard.
-Reboot the computer - it should re-detect the card reader and install it on it's own.
