    Card Reader has stopped working after upgrading PC to Windows 7

    Since installing Windows 7 into my PC, the built-in Card Reader is not responding while inserting SD cards. When I checked the driver information for hidden devices, I found the error code 45. In what way can I enable the reader again?

    Refresh the device manager and see whether it can fix the Card Reader. Click the ‘Run’ option reside on the start menu after clicking the ‘Start’ button. Enter devmgmt.msc into the ‘Open’ field and press the ‘Enter’ key on the keyboard. This will open up the ‘Device Manager’ on your system. Choose your computer as the location for scanning by simply clicking on it. Get into the ‘Action’ menu and click the ‘Scan for hardware changes’ option. Quit the device manager after that and restart your PC.

    Hi,

    After the updation to Windows 7, reason for the non recognition of your Card Reader might be of the driver file that runs the USB port.

    First click START , in the search field type DEVICE MANAGER and click it as soon as you found it.

    Click UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLER and check the Driver file status, and if any yellow or exclamation marks are found , uninstall the driver first.

    From the same menu select UPDATE DRiVER and once the installation is complete, exit. Reboot.

    Check the condition of the Card Reader also if it has developed any defect or not.

    Thanks.
