Advent 8212 laptop SD card reader problem

  CDR Krill 18:58 11 Nov 2007

Hi guys, had this machine for about a month now with no problems. It has Vista pre-installed. Tonight I tried to make use of the 4in1 card reader built in to it to read a Sandisk 512mb SD card. However when i put the card in, the computer grinds to a halt until i remove it. It appears to be recognised (the vista new device plugged in noise sounds) and "o2micro sd scsi interface" appears in device manager, however it does not appear as a drive in explorer (in fact it stops the computer app working). I have done a bit of reseach and tried the MS sd rollup package but this did not fix the probem. Can't seem to find any updated drivers from O2micro. I only have the one card so can't test if there is a similar problem with other SD cards or Memory sticks. Any ideas?? Si

Or did you manager to resolve it CDR Krill?

Hi mate... if the card reader is built in and non-removable and there are no options for this device in the BIOS, and all USB options (except Wake On options) are enabled in the BIOS, I would say your laptop could be faulty.
You need to try another card to make sure it’s not a media issue first before doing much else.
