Card reader gone after re install of windows

  Koochy 00:01 22 Sep 2006

Hi all i know this is probably a trivial one for you but since doing a windows re install i have lost my built in card reader the only thing i have done different from what have done in the past is put a partition in the hdd (c:=50GB and d:=180 GB) i don't know if this is connected.The only thing i can find in the device manager is an unknown usb device so i tried to update the drivers from the Fujitsu seimens drivers disc but no joy. Any ideas very welcome.

Anything else you need to know just ask.

Try a generic card reader driver off the net and see if it is any help - what card formats does the reader work with?

By the way, will windows update find anything for you?

If you can pin down the manufacturer details of the reader it may also help - the FS site may have something.

I have tried the windows update but with no joy but i will try the fs site and post back

does the device show in device manager if it doesnt then you will have to investigate why if it does then look and check the drivers

^wave^ - it appears to be shwoing as an unknown device

did it ever come with drivers if so put in the disk and use them. if not you will have to find the type of device and go to there web site and down load drivers from there

Hi all sorry about the delay in getting back.

I have used the drivers and utilities disc that came with the pc but tat didn't work so i tried deleting the partion and formating the hard drive again and the card reader is okay so i think i will just have to live without a partition.
